Launch of the ENERGEIA Project

8 organisations have met in Bologna on the 3rd and 4th of June to launch ENERGEIA - Energy Enterprise Generation in the Med Area, a European Project co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) through the MED Programme. This programme fosters trans-regional cooperation between countries in the Mediterranean area.  The project has a durationa of 24 months and will be completed by April 2015.

ASTER, an organisation that fosters and supports innovation in the Emilia Romagna region in Italy, is the lead partner of the project. The other 7 partners include theTemiZammit Foundation – Malta, the Andalusian Institute of Technology – Spain, the PACA EST Incubator – France, the University of Algarve – Portugal, the Province of Turin – Italy, the Institute for the Development of the Murcia Region – Spain and the Agency for the Economic Development of the Sarajevo Region – Bosnia& Herzegovina.

The main objective of the ENERGEIA project is the support of entrepreneurship within the energy sector, with a special emphasis on enterprises that are able to utilise innovations that arise in this sector.

This objective can contribute significantly towards reaching the “Europe 2020” objectives, specifically towards the production of energy from renewable energy sources and conservation of energy. Moreover, the ENERGEIA project can also contribute towards the economic development, the generation of wealth and employment of the regions involved. 

At the heart of the ENERGEIA project there’s the idea that,in order to develop new technologies and innovative solutions, the ideal environment for the creation of new enterprises needs to be developed. These enterprises must also be able to understand the needs of their market and respond rapidly to new innovation within the renewable energy sector.  

To achieve this, the ENERGEIA project will be undertaking specific research on the needs of energy enterprises, together with networking activities within the regions that will ultimately lead towards pilot actions aimed at the support of these enterprises.

The first step will involve a mapping exercise to identify the players involved in the renewable energy sector in all the regions involved in the project. These players will include technology providers, manufacturers, installers, distributors and financial service providers. Organisations that provide support to start-up companies will also be identified and their best practices will be shared within the partnership.

Coupled with the mapping exercise, a cooperation network will be set-up in each region to further identify the needs of small and medium sized enterprise (SMEs).  

The mapping and the networks will ultimately lead towards the development of 2 pilot actions: 

  • The first one will be targeted towards organisations that support the development of SMEs in the energy sector.
  • The second one will be specifically aimed towards SMEs and start-ups in the energy sector with an emphasis on the utilisation of research results in order to obtain innovative solutions.
