I-NERGY in EC Innovation Radar

One of I-NERGY innovations - Digital Twin for Distributed Energy Resources (DER) - has the honor to be analysed by the European Commission's Innovation Radar.

In this analysis, Innovation Radar also identified the RWTH as a "Key Innovator" in the development of this innovation.

The Innovation Radar platform builds on the information and data gathered by independent experts involved in reviewing ongoing research and innovation projects funded by the European Commission. These experts also provide an independent view regarding the innovations in the projects and their market potential (more information about the Innovation Radar methodology is available here).

The aim is to make information about EU-funded innovations from high-quality projects visible and accessible to the public via the EU's Innovation Radar platform. This will show citizens the many excellent technological and scientific advances being delivered by researchers and innovators around Europe, funded on their behalf by the European Commission. This initiative has the support of EU Members States and, to date, Ministers from 23 countries have signed the Innovation Radar declaration confirming their support for this initiative.


Details of the I-NERGY innovation and how it was categorised by the analysis, are as follows:

  • Innovation Title: Digital Twin for Distributed Energy Resources (DER) coordination;
  • Market Maturity of the Innovation: Business Ready (more details on this categorisation are provided here);
  • Market Creation Potential of the innovation: Noteworthy (more details on this categorisation are provided here);

Information about this innovation is published on the European Commission's Innovation Radar platform. The name of the beneficiary organisation in the project identified by Innovation Radar as a "key innovator" for this innovation is be published. Details of the EU-funded project, I-NERGY, the innovation is developed within also appears on the platform (project acronym, project title, project description and project end-date).

I-NERGY inclusion in this initiative could open up new opportunities to partner with business or academic organisations and trigger interest from potential customers or investors in project innovations. Above all, it will demonstrate to a global audience the innovative work our project is active in delivering.
