Energy Transition and Environment

The world faces major threats due to unsustainable consumption of fossil resources and raw materials, and unsustainable land use. The whole society and all sectors need to make a U-turn in order to preserve our planet for future generations.

Uniresearch consultants have profound knowledge of the opportunities and challenges in the Energy Transition and are keen to support you to acquire funding for research and innovation in e.g. the following EU programs: Secure, Clean and Efficient Energy, Blue Growth, Biobased Industries, Mobility for Growth, Fuel Cells and Hydrogen and Climate action, Environment, Resource Efficiency and Raw Materials. Our services in project set-up and – management cover each development stage; from early stage research projects to demonstration projects.

Show Projects


The iSTORMY project is a research and innovation project (LC-BAT-9-2020) and will propose an innovative and interoperable hybrid stationary energy storage system based on: modular battery pack (stacks/modules) + modular power electronics (PE) interface + universal Self-healing energy management strategy (SH-EMS).
Uniresearch Role

Uniresearch was hired by the initial 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. After approval of the project, Uniresearch has been assigned the task of project management facilitator and is member of the Work Package for the activities related to dissemination, exploitation, and valorisation. Uniresearch will be responsible for major dissemination and communication activities of the project results.

The objective of iSTORMY (Interoperable, modular and Smart hybrid energy STORage systeM for stationarY applications) is to addresses the new challenges by developing an interoperable and modular Hybrid Energy Storage System (HESS), by demonstrating various use cases and seamlessly interface the grid to provide multiple services, such as a combination of load levelling, frequency regulation, provision of backup power, at minimum cost. The HESS consists of batteries (1st and 2nd life), power electronics and thermal management and control systems. Managing it is a complex and challenging task since it involves combining components of different nature (e.g. electrical, mechanical, thermal or chemical) and of different dynamics into a single system.
