This project aims to address several scientific and technological challenges towards the use of shuttle drones to perform launch and capture maneuvers of other vehicles or objects. A first scenario is considered where the shuttle drones cooperate with the vehicles to be launched or captured, either relaying information about their planned motion or actively synchronizing.

The rising decentralization of the energy system is unveiling an enormous opportunity for energy stakeholders to leverage on big data & AI technologies to improve decision making. There are however some barriers hampering the exploitation of this potential, such as the lack of standardized big data architectures for smart grids and regulatory frameworks not enabling data sharing.

SOLSTICE answers the quest for stationary energy storage with two Na-Zn molten salt batteries, which operate at elevated temperature. The first concept benefits from the existing and successful ZEBRA® technology. Replacing their Ni-electrode by cheap and abundant Zn will only minimally affect other system parts thereby ensuring fast commercialisation.

Home to more than 2 200 inhabited islands, the EU is committed to facilitating their clean energy transition. A long-term framework can ensure the islands are able to generate their own sustainable, low-cost energy. The EU-funded IANOS project is working in this direction starting from the islands of Terceira (Azores),Ameland (Netherlands),Lampedusa (Italy),Bora Bora (France) and Nisyros (Greece).
