Acciona has launched a “Competition for disruptive storage technologies for integration with renewable energies” to find innovative solutions in the field of energy storage. The company wants to collaborate with external companies and startups worldwide and is inviting them to submit proposals by October 31st.
Acciona is offering to test the best entries at its PV plant in Montes del Cierzo and/or the windfarm of Barasoain, both in Navarre, for six months to a year. The selected partners will benefit from the use of Acciona’s real operational data to fine tune their solutions.
Acciona is launching this challenge via its I’MNOVATION platform, which links the company’s own innovation efforts with the wider entrepreneurial ecosystem.
With these kinds of initiatives, the company hopes to deepen its focus on opportunities for sustainable growth through innovation.
