Portable Renewable Energy Generation:
Document A — Competition Brief:
The Portable Renewable Energy Generation project is a national SBRI competition that will be launched by the City of Cardiff Council to identify and develop innovative solutions to generate portable renewable energy technologies that are able to work in a range of locations on underused or vacant land in the city.
This competition is jointly funded by Welsh Government, Innovate UK and the Department for Energy & Climate Change and will be run by the Energy & Sustainability Department of City of Cardiff Council.
The contest will seek to develop innovative and cost effective solutions that provide portable and scalable technologies to generate clean renewable energy on vacant or underused land in the city that could be easily removed and relocated elsewhere as necessary. The solutions would need to:
— be easy to transport, install, dismantle and store;
— be able to work effectively in a range of different locational scenarios;
— consider and devise effective, low cost means of connecting to energy distribution grids, directly to nearby users, and/or methods to store energy for future use elsewhere;
— address issues of site security and health and safety;
— be mindful of potential impacts on neighbouring areas;
— consider means of registering for appropriate Government incentives for renewable energy regeneration; and
— show a clear route to scalability and cost effective production, measured against return on investment.
Organisations will be invited to compete for a share of a total of 1 000 000 GBP million fund which will be divided into 2 stages as follows:
— Stage 1: Up to 4 feasibility projects up to 50 000 GBP each.
— Stage 2: Up to 2 demonstrator projects up to 400 000 GBP each.
Only projects selected for stage 1 will be eligible to take part in stage 2.
We are pleased to have Western Power Distribution and the Building Research Establishment as critical friends in the competition. These partners will join the core team in steering the competition’s key drivers, assessing applications and monitoring project progress.

The competition will open on Monday 20.4.2015 with a briefing event for interested parties being run on Wednesday 29.4.2015 at Cardiff Council County Hall offices, CF10 4UW (parking in Red Dragon centre, opposite County Hall). (https://eventbrite.com/event/16394446230/).
