CleanTech Innovation AS is developing the CTi Digital Toolkit for small and medium scale renewable energy projects including mini-grid and storage. The CTi Toolkit will be a non-stop shop for micro and small scale project developers and communities in cities as well as rural areas. The CTi Toolkit will bridge the need for simplified analysis for the project developers to reach out to international climate funding schemes being launched the coming years. CleanTech Innovation AS plans to apply for the Horizon 2020 SME instrument in 2018/19, when we have developed the first prototype (TRL 5) under RFF. We are in dialogue with Inspiralia (www.inspiralia.com) about this application. They have a high success-rate for the SME instrument. Our bottom up approach to the project development of our IoT based Toolkit, will be important references for machine learning. To scale up, we aim to be attractive partners for targeted calls to be presented and developed under Errrin Project Development Week. We also planned to attend the ICT Proposers Day in Budapest, but other R&D partners are taking part in this event. The budgeted costs for both position events are NOK 36.929, and support of the remaining personal POS budget of NOK 11.529 for Inger-Anne B. Madsen for 2017. The rest will be covered by own co-finance. We might get part of the expenses covered by other sources, and until that is clarified, we ask for the flexibility of a joint application and project report based on actual expenses.
