H2020-LCE-2016-2017: Búsqueda de socios interesados en desarrollar un pico hidrogenerador de la próxima generación


Búsqueda de socios
Una empresa británica de ingeniería está interesada en desarrollar un proyecto para poner en marcha un generador hidroeléctrico de bajo coste que genera hasta 500 W de electricidad aprovechando la energía del agua de corrientes y ríos que discurre a alta velocidad. Este generador apenas requiere un trabajo de construcción, lo que facilita la instalación en regiones remotas o menos desarrolladas. La empresa busca socios industriales o investigadores con el fin de continuar con la investigación y preparar una propuesta para la convocatoria H2020-LCE-2016-2017. 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 octubre de 2016.


H2020-LCE-2016-2017: Looking for partners interested in developing next generation run of river pico hydro generator
A UK engineering company looking to develop a project to bring to operability a low cost hydroelectric generator that generates up to 500W of electricity by harnessing power from high velocity, low head water in streams and rivers. The generator would require minimal construction works which makes it easy to set up in remote or underdeveloped regions. The company is looking for industrial and research partners to carry out further research and prepare a joint bid under the above H2020 call.
A UK engineering company with a track record in providing hydropower solutions is willing to build a consortium with the aim of developing a low cost pico (small) hydroelectric generator that generates up to 500W by harnessing power from high velocity, low head water in streams and rivers.
Conventional hydropower technologies are extremely capital intensive. They require substantial civil construction works to divert the flow of water into the hydropower device which itself is constructed from expensive materials and requires labour intensive processes. In many cases restricted access, difficulties transporting the equipment and the lack of roads has precluded any development; not least, existing hydropower solutions tend to affect negatively the local habitats. The proposed project wants to tackle this challenge by developing a low cost pico (small) hydroelectric generator that will harness power from high velocity, low head water in streams and rivers.
The project aims to devise a solution that requires minimal construction and setup works. Made of modular units, it can be sized to suit any site to optimise power output, and multiples of the product can be tethered in parallel or in series to generate more power. The power generating process involves neither an impoundment nor an abstraction, so it wouldn´t require environment authority consent nor planning permission in most locations. It will have no impact on aquatic life or habitat and will be able to operate throughout floods and droughts.
With simplicity of design and ease of shipping, assembly and installation, the device will have significant impacts in underdeveloped regions and developing countries where communities require consistent, reliable electricity supplies.
The company has carried out initial market opportunity research and rely on significant in-house engineering expertise. It looks forward to partnering with the following organisations that will assist with various stages of the project:
? Institute of Experimental Physics for assisting with the setup and testing of experiments and with building prototypes.
? A Polymer Processing and Manufacturing company to work with on the design of a product that is technically not too costly.
? Other engineering partners - companies or research institutes - for computer aided design (CAD) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis.

The project is being prepared for the H2020 LCE-07-2016-2017 call "Developing the next generation technologies of renewable electricity and heating/cooling" which closes on January 5th 2017.
The deadline for expressions of interest is October 1st 2016.

Partner sought

Partner Sought:
The following partners are sought to assist with various stages of the project: ? An Institute of Experimental Physics for assisting with the setup and testing of experiments. ? A Polymer processing -Y- manufacturing company to work with from the outset to avoid designing a product that is technically too costly to manufacture. ? Computer aided design (CAD) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis - institute or company. ? A control systems engineering company that will design the generator control and grid synchronisation systems. Each role of a project partner will be further consulted and detailed in the work packages during the project drafting stage.
