The innovation exchange is seeking innovative approaches to provide the Tidal Thames with a solution to provide smart flexible zero emission power provision, as a service available 24/7 at the waterside, from berths throughout the Port of London. The winning business(es) in this competition will be given an opportunity to present their solutions to the Port of London Authority, with the potential of a commercial opportunity to deliver their solution.
Approaches to mitigate against stranded diesel assets
The innovation exchange is looking for innovative solutions for avoiding the ‘stranding’ of diesel-powered assets within ports and harbours. Emissions legislation and air quality directives will start to take effect and the use of fossil fuel powered assets may become restricted or banned from use if the polluting impact of their use in terms of emissions are not addressed. Stranded assets are "assets that have suffered from unanticipated or premature write-downs, devaluations or conversion to liabilities” and in the context of this challenge refer to diesel powered assets with working lives that extend beyond the horizon for their restricted use or banning. Owners and operators are seeking non fossil fuel alternatives or means to dramatically reduce their emissions from assets like generators, forklifts, mobile cranes, and port boats. The winning business(es) in this competition will be given an opportunity to present their solutions to a group of major port operators, with the potential of a commercial opportunity to deliver their solution.

Monitoring Movement in Crowds
The Innovation Exchange (iX), delivered in partnership with HMG and KTN, is looking to identify innovative solutions to a number of challenges around overseeing, anonymously, the movement of people in shared spaces with the intent of ensuring crowd safety. Applicants are required to demonstrate late-stage research or commercial solutions. This research will only be looking at the movement of people in scenarios where public safety is at risk, and data will be anonymised to protect privacy.
