The major challenge in the Transport sector is the transformation towards zero emission in all possible modes of transport. Ultimately, this means vehicles, vessels and airplanes, which are either electric, hydrogen fuelled and/or the use of a biobased or renewable fuel. Other challenges are: autonomous driving and new mobility concepts.
Uniresearch consultants have profound knowledge of the opportunities and challenges in the transport and mobility domain and are keen to support you to acquire funding for research and innovation actions in e.g. the following European programs: Green Vehicle, Mobility for Growth, Fuel Cells and Hydrogen, Maritime and Infrastructures. Our services in project set-up and – management cover each development stage; from early stage research projects to demonstration projects.
Uniresearch was hired by the consortium partners to guide the whole grant application process, which includes compiling information from partners and writing of new texts based on Uniresearch and partner expertise. In the HIGREEW project itself, Uniresearch will be responsible for project management, communication between the consortium partners and from the consortium to the EC and will have a leading role in the dissemination and exploitation of the project results.
The objective of HIGREEW (Affordable High-performance Green REdox floW batteries) is to design, develop and validate and advanced redox flow battery, based on new water-soluble low-cost organic electrolyte compatible with optimized low resistance membrane and fast electrodes kinetics for a high energy density and long-life service. Battery engineering will focus on two themes: 1) an affordable balance of plant to optimise performance through advanced control strategy, achieving a LCOS of < 0.10€/kWh/cycle (end of project) and 0.05€/kWh/cycle (by 2030) and 2) recycling, to minimise the environmental cost of the battery installations. The battery prototype will be tested and validated in the pilot plant of Siemens Gamesa located in Spain.
The project consortium consists of 9 partners from 5 EU countries.
