Challenge Expiration Date: ALWAYS OPEN
Energy Storage Systems and their related technologies are a very broad topics ranging from chemistry to data science. We are looking for new storage technologies, architectures and control strategies to minimize energy storage costs and to improve the way our Energy Storage assets are built, operated and maintained, in order to maximize their profitability.
We are targeting all the energy storage uses and all technologies suitable for the electricity sector: integration with fossil and renewable power plants, use as stand-alone asset for grid support, integration with commercial, industrial and residential customers behind their meter, integration in minigrid for remote areas, vehicle to grid applications.
We are particularly interested in the innovation areas outlined below:
If you think you have an interesting proposal that could bring value exploitation for Enel as a utility, the time to propose it is now.
We do believe that energy storage will be part of our future energy and we are willing to explore and pioneer the best options to be integrated in our value chain.
Explain your proposal clearly, attach documents if needed (max 5 files, 25MB total size) and support the idea focusing on the following key drivers:
In the Annex “Enel S.p.A. Storage Competition Regulations” you can find the complete Regulation of the Challenge, that you will accept once you submit your solution to this challenge.
For technical support you can contact OpenInnovabilityemail@example.com
All proposals will be valued by internal Scouting Commitees and select a short list every 3 months.
You might be contact to gather additional information and at the end of the assessment, you will receive feedback.
In case of success, an Enel contact person will get in touch with you to discuss the next steps.
Non Disclosure Agreement will be signed in case technology insights are needed.
Collaboration and testing agreements will be signed with the proposals that will be interesting to deploy our business strategy, to prove the technologies on field.
The selected proposals will be rewarded with the possibility to sign a collaboration and testing agreement with Enel and/or the relevant company of the Enel Group.
In particular, Enel will provide the winner with:
- the technical support to test the solution proposed, granting access to infrastructures and high-tech locations;
- the chance to being connected to international stakeholders, thanks to the global network of physical Enel Innovation Hubs around the world (eg. Italy, Tel Aviv, Madrid, San Francisco, etc..). Enel will bear the costs of the testing activities: for each project the necessary amount and the modalities will be evaluated together with the applicant.
If the test/PoC will be successful, Enel, directly or indirectly through a company of the Enel Group, might offer a concrete opportunity to scale-up the solution by adopting it through commercial agreements.
If the winning Proposal is submitted by an employee of a company of the Enel Group, the winner Applicant will be awarded with the possibility to be involved during the internal POC set-up activities.
