The TRINITY project has been acknowledged for its 4 innovative products by the European Commission’s Innovation Radar. The innovations, resulting from the Horizon 2020 project TRINITY, will enhance cooperation and coordination among the transmission system operators of SEE in order to support the integration of the electricity markets in the region, whilst promoting higher penetration of clean energies. The products cover different stages market maturity levels of innovations towards commercialisation.
Recognised among the best EU-funded innovators
TRINITY products make part now of the many great EU-funded innovations identified by the Innovation Radar – and the innovators behind them.
Innovation Radar captures the different maturity levels of innovations towards commercialisation, four innovation categories have been created based on respective scores of the Innovation Management and Innovation Readiness Indicators.
The four products are included within the “Business Ready“ maturity level, contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) “Affordable and Clean Energy” and “Climate Action”.
“Business ready” TRINITY products
The T-MARKET COUPLING FRAMEWORK (Multi-Market coupling platform for Southeastern Europe countries) , T-SENTINEL TOOLSET (Security and reliability platform for supporting Regional Security Centres), T-RES CONTROL CENTRE (Advanced control and planning platform for RES Managers) and T-COORDINATION PLATFORM (Platform for coordinating multiple energy actors at transmission level) are considered “advanced on market preparation“ and those concrete market-oriented activities like business plans, and end-user engagement ideas have been brought together. This means that they are useful to potential market participants, and that it represents a relevant application in real-life situations.
The Innovation Radar
The EU Innovation Radar is an initiative by the European Commission to highlight innovations with excellent potential from EBusiness Ready. For the Innovation Radar, independent experts are engaged to evaluate ongoing R&I projects funded by the EU (under Horizon 2020, Framework Programme 7 (FP7), or the Competitiveness and Innovation Programme (CIP)). Because of their inherent neutrality, these experts can provide objective opinions about the relevance of the innovations in the projects and their market potential.
Its goal is to allow every citizen, public official, professional, and businessperson to discover the outputs of EU innovation funding and give them a chance to seek out innovators.
By means of an intricate methodology to categorise the innovations under assessment, four different maturity levels are then bestowed on each respective innovation. From Market-Ready to Tech-Ready, and from Business-Ready to Exploring, these maturity levels indicate how far along these products are on their path towards commercialisation.
