The iX competition, delivered by the Knowledge Transfer Network, is supporting the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) to identify solutions to innovation challenges. This current challenge relates to the need to deliver low carbon energy to meet the demands for power, space heating and hot water in a cold environment at Bird Island and Signy research stations on Antarctica, taking into consideration the ecologically sensitive environment.
Innovative Approaches to Optimising Multi-vector and Multi-use in Energy Systems
Energy systems are increasingly becoming decarbonised, decentralised and digitised as we transition to Net Zero. Intelligent energy management systems will be required to optimise energy generation, storage and use for cities, industries, businesses and buildings. The Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) is working with ENGIE to identify innovative companies developing integrated energy management solutions to help cities, local authorities, industries and businesses to reach net zero. ENGIE is committed to being the global leader in the zero carbon transition and has a strong track record of deploying innovative, low carbon solutions across the Energy, Services and Regeneration sectors. The challenge is only open to UK SMEs. Through this challenge ENGIE is looking to identify UK SMEs that it will, if successful, invite to apply for funding under the ENGIE UKRI Clean Growth Innovation Fund.
