India Energy Storage Alliance (IESA), India’s leading alliance on energy storage & e-mobility, has entered into partnership with United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) for “Facility of Low Carbon Deployment” (FLCTD) Innovation Challenge for technology innovation in beta deployment of electrical energy storage in India.

To support and encourage the new innovations in Indian energy storage and emobility space, FLCTD by UNIDO on November 1, 2020, launched the 4th round of innovation challenge with grant upto USD 50,000 for winning technologies and recognition from Bureau of Energy Efficiency, UNIDO and IESA.

The aim of the challenge is to identify high-impact opportunities that have the potential for energy saving along with large-scale carbon emission reductions, and to provide financial support for field validation/beta testing of their technology. The project supports innovative technologies in advance stage of development for field demonstration and validation and does not support innovation that are at the ideation-stage, proof-of-concept or at lab-scale.

The challenge covers technologies such as electrochemical batteries, supercapacitors, critical components for electrical energy storage systems including power conversion systems while the applications include off-grid stationary applications, e-mobility, battery recycling, grid-connected and behind-the-meter. Companies/institutes/startups working on innovation in electro-chemical battery, battery management system (BMS), Super Capacitor or a combination of battery and super-capacitor to address a technology gap in end-use application to improve the adoption of electrical energy storage system are highly encouraged to apply for the FLCTD project. The last date to apply for the challenge is December 18, 2020.

Commenting on the challenge Sandeep Tandon, National Programme Manager, Facility for Low Carbon Technology Deployment (FLCTD) said, “the project aims to strengthen the innovation eco-system in India, particularly for the development of technology-based solutions that are helping address the energy and climate change issue. The project is also attempting to improve the academia-entrepreneur-industry collaboration to bring innovative technology solutions so that all stand to benefit.”

“This is a unique opportunity for Indian conglomerates and MSMEs and start-ups to showcase their innovation & engineering capabilities in this sunrise energy storage and electric mobility sector. I urged the emerging startups to come forward and participate in this opportunity. Recognizing the momentum in the industry, IESA organized an Innovation workshop at India Energy Storage Week (IESW) on November 2, 2020, in association with UNIDO. The program was aimed at startups in the e-mobility, clean energy, energy storage, and clean transportation sectors,” said Debi Prasad Dash, Executive Director, India Energy Storage Alliance (IESA).
