At the end of this activity 8 energy-mapping reports, which include the results obtained using this methodology, will define the main peculiar needs and existing challenges for enterprise creation and support.
In particular, during the research phase, the following aspects will be tackled:
- Analysis of the whole energy sector components in the ENERGEIA regions (technology providers, producers, installers, retailers, finance providers etc.)
- Collection of information on new business companies developed on research outputs that boost the energy sector: development of a database, interviews to entrepreneurs with a research background, analysis of profiles, etc.
- Collection of information from service providers regarding support approaches to such specific companies, aimed at identifying which are the main areas that still need to be reinforced.
Each region will perform its own independent analysis andthis will, in turn, be used for a secondary report that will show the results of the 8 energy mappings, including the common best practices that encourage enterprise generation and business development of energy companies in the partner regions.
The InstitutoAndaluz de Tecnología (IAT)is the organisation responsible for overseeing the whole mapping exercise, which will be concluded by the end of 2013.
