SECTION 2: QUALITATIVE FACTORS
|3||Dimension of identified target groups|
|In Romania, the wind and solar energy potential is estimated to: 17% wind energy, 12% solar energy.
As potential customers of the product we identified: isolated homes, meteorological stations, telephone relays, generally any location placed far from the mains.
|4||Evaluation of financial Risks for R&D result
|We consider that achieving the product implies a low financial risk, because there are enough material and human resources, and the offer of component equipment is diversified. In Romania, the market is less developed at the level of small systems, due to the high cost of components.
The component equipment of the system for generating electric energy from renewable resources has high reliability and long life.
SECTION 3: IDENTIFICATION OF FINANCING SOURCES
After evaluating all the above mentioned criteria, please tick the best financing source for the achievement of R&D result (i.e. own capitals, banking credits, venture capital, business angels, etc)
|1. EURopean Funding
Define relevance of the product with the following potential funding sources and comment
|- Sectoral Operational Programme Increase of Economic Competitiveness
|2. National Funding
|- National Plan for Research, Development and Innovation
- Nucleu Programme (National Authority for Scientific Research)
– Other: Green House programme
|3. Private funding|
|- Own capitals
| 4. Other
|The pilot project was financed within the Nucleu Programme (National Authority for Scientific Research-ANCS).
The systems for generating electric energy from renewable sources can be financed within the government programme “Green House” or programme POS CCE, Priority axis 4: Increase of energy efficiency and supply safety in the context of combating climate changes, or partnerships with private companies.
For purposes of research in the field of renewable energy, partnerships could be created within the National Plan for Research, Development and Innovation – PN II, the Sectoral Plan or European programmes FP7.
SECTION 4: FINAL EVALUATION
|It is requested a final evaluation considering the funding opportunities you believe most suitable for the exploitation of the R&D result, considering the possibility of the creation of a spin-off, further research, in particular, a cost/benefit analysis and a financial projection for the R&D result, type of collaboration identified (i.e. Licensing Agreement, Technical Cooperation, Joint Venture, Manufacturing Agreement, Commercial Agreement with Technical Assistance, Creation of a spin-off, Joint further development)…|
|The timeliness of implementing the strategy for capitalizing the renewable energy sources on long and medium term in Romania offers the suitable framework for adopting some decisions regarding the energy alternatives and compliance with the acquis communautaire in the field. Under the meteorological and geographical conditions from Romania, in the energy balance for medium and long term the following types of renewable energy sources are taken into consideration: solar energy, wind energy, hydro energy, biomass and geothermal energy.
The renewable energy sources can contribute with priority to meeting the current needs of electric energy and heating in the disadvantaged rural areas. The capitalization of the renewable energy sources, under competitive conditions on energy market, becomes opportune by adapting and putting into practice some specific policies and instruments or issuing the “green certificates” (“ecological certificates”).
Decision of evaluation (Please keep only the appropriate)
- The R&D has a high potential of exploitation
