The European Innovation Council Business Acceleration Services and ENEL invite you to participate in our brand-new Planet.tech challenge. This is a great opportunity to enhance your cooperation with large corporates and co-create innovative solutions to a number of pre-determined challenges related to the European Green Deal. 


Apply and step up to the plate.

Applications are open until 19 April 2020 23.59 (CET)


What’s Planet.tech?

The European Green Deal, and the major sustainability challenges it will tackle, ask for close collaboration across value chains. Concrete pilots between the best start-ups/scaleups and knowledgeable corporates are critical to demonstrate business solutions and de-risk major investments for scaling.

With the Planet.tech initiative, the EIC Business Acceleration Services offers the opportunity to enhance your cooperation with ENEL and jointly devise innovative solutions to a number of pre-determined challenges in the field of sustainability. 


Selection procedure

ENEL will dedicate a team of experts to select the SME with the highest possibilities to develop a joint Proof of Concept (PoC) around the challenges proposed. 

On 3-4 June, the pre-selected EIC SME will meet online with high level corporate decision makers to present their solutions and establish one-to-one business discussions.  

After this initial meeting, ENEL will take a final decision regarding the development of a PoC or any other kind of pilot collaboration. Successful pilots will be invited to showcase their solution in a dedicated event in Brussels, Belgium in autumn 2020 (tbd).


ENEL’s Challenges

Enel is currently looking for innovative solutions of circular economy in the field of the energy asset:

  • Identify second-life solutions to re-use the energy asset (both components of power generation plants and components of distribution lines) 
  • Identify alternative and recyclable materials for the production of components of the energy asset
