IESA, UNIDO launch energy storage innovation challenge


India Energy Storage Alliance (IESA) and United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), have launched an energy storage innovation challenge in India. The challenge aims to support and encourage innovations in battery storage for the Indian power and e-mobility space, granting up to $50,000 for winning technologies and recognition from the Bureau of Energy Efficiency, UNIDO and IESA. 

The challenge aims to identify high-impact opportunities that have the potential for energy saving and large-scale carbon emission reductions and to provide financial support for field validation/beta testing of their technology. The project will support innovative technologies in the advanced stage of development for field demonstration and validation. Innovations at the ideation-stage, proof-of-concept or lab-scale will not be supported.

The challenge covers electrochemical batteries, supercapacitors, and critical components for electrical energy storage systems, including power conversion systems. The applications include off-grid stationary applications, e-mobility, battery recycling, grid-connected and behind-the-meter.

Companies, institutes, and startups working on electrochemical batteries, battery management systems, supercapacitors, or a combination of batteries and supercapacitors to improve the electrical energy storage system’s adoption are encouraged to apply for the challenge.

The last date to apply is December 18, 2020.
