H2020 LCE-07-2016-2017: Desarrollo de tecnologías de electricidad renovable y calefacción/refrigeración de la próxima generación y turbina de río


Búsqueda de socios
Una pyme y universidad británica y una compañía española están interesadas en presentar una propuesta a la convocatoria LCE-07-2016-2017 del programa Horizonte 2020 con el fin de desarrollar una nueva turbina de río respetuosa con el medioambiente, segura y fácil de mantener para lugares remotos y con recursos limitados. Se buscan socios con el fin de desarrollar y diseñar el prototipo de la rueda hidráulica y generador, así como un socio especializado en instalar sistemas de telecomunicaciones inalámbricos. La fecha límite de la convocatoria es el 5 de enero de 2017 y el plazo para presentar expresiones de interés finaliza el 1 de abril de 2016.


H2020 LCE-07-2016-2017 Developing the next generation technologies of renewable electricity and heating / cooling - development of a river turbine
A UK-based SME, a UK University and a Spanish company are looking to submit a proposal to the LCE-07-2016-2017 call topic in Horizon 2020 to develop a novel, environmentally friendly river turbine technology that is reliable and easy to maintain for use in remote and resource-limited settings. They are looking for partners to develop and design the prototype waterwheel and generator and a partner specialising in the installation of wireless telecommunications systems.
River turbines provide a renewable source of electricity generation but also have potential for environmental damage creating a need to improve understanding of river ecology and the relation to river regulation to ensure that hydropower solutions have a minimal negative environmental impact. A UK-based SME specialising in environmental services, a UK University and a Spanish partner involved in the user interface, management software and wireless telecommunications network relating to sensors, are looking to submit a proposal to LCE-07-2016-2017: "Developing the next generation technologies of renewable electricity and heating/cooling" to develop a novel, environmentally friendly river turbine technology that is reliable and easy to maintain for use in remote and resource-limited settings.

The objective of the project is to develop a modular hydropower solution for use in remote areas with the ability to operate both on and off grid. The system is to support battery backup and charging facilities with full telemetry to monitor functionality and performance. In addition, as a further societal benefit, it is proposed to provide telecommunications services to promote the development of isolated communities. The solution is to incorporate fish friendly operation of the waterwheel and is to minimise the environmental impact of the facility on the immediate vicinity and downstream of the operation.

The project aims to effectively demonstrate the potential of a new hydropower system that operates using plug and play technologies for easy maintenance and repair to facilitate low cost, renewable power generation to provide solutions for heating/cooling and local/national wireless telecommunications. The environmental impact of this solution is to be minimised reducing loss of fish stocks along with reduced river bank erosion and deposition.

The concept uses traditional waterwheel technology as the design basis with a novel generator for electrical power generation and telemetry for monitoring and control of system performance to provide on and off grid renewable electrical energy. The existing group has a range of expertise comprising civil engineering, sensor development, instrumentation and control, telemetry solutions, hydrology and the installation of cost effective forms of solar cooling through the use of renewable technologies.

Expertise sought: A partner to develop, design and manufacture the prototype modular twin-hulled waterwheel capable of 100kW mechanical power output. A partner to develop, design and manufacture the high efficiency generator, possibly incorporating a hybrid design using permanent magnets to carry the static load and then active magnetic bearing once the levitated shaft deviates from its optimum position during rotation. A partner familiar with new battery production and storage for both on- and off- site consumption.

Partner sought

Partner Sought:
The proposers seek partners that can add value to their future proposal. The ideal partners are companies not too small or R-Y-D institutions, but they are open to any suggestion. The project coordinator role has been initially assigned to the university partner. The consortium is expected to be integrated by around 5 to 6 partners in total depending on applicant capabilities (currently there are 3). The following partners are being sought to complete the consortium: SME / Research Institution: To design and manufacture the modular waterwheel, twin-hulled floating platform and tethering system. SME / Research Institution: To design and manufacture the energy efficient generator and infrastructure for grid connection. SME / Research Institution: To design and supply the telecommunications and battery backup infrastructure. As the consortium already has members from the UK and Spain the consortium will not be looking to add member from these countries.
