EU's Call for Proposals: Demonstration of plug and play solutions for renewable off-grid electricity

Container-based integrated solutions for sustainable and long-term renewable electricity production, storage and distribution which demonstrate better performance than state-of-the-art solutions with respect to the overall installation, commissioning, operation and maintenance costs.
Application Deadline in 2 months

Container-based integrated solutions for sustainable and long-term renewable electricity production, storage and distribution which demonstrate better performance than state-of-the-art solutions with respect to the overall installation, commissioning, operation and maintenance costs.
 
The following parameters and features are expected to be optimised:
  • Versatility of renewable energy sources to utilise (e.g. photovoltaics, wind, micro-hydropower, bioenergy);
  • Plug and play capabilities towards the external electricity sources as well as storage options;
  • Maximising the share of renewable electricity sources vis-á-vis diesel generation;
  • Demonstrated solutions should support power demand of decentralised communities up to 100 kW, in line with targets of Mission Innovation Challenge Nr. 2.
 
Dateline for submission: 11 December 2018 17:00:00 Brussels time

A Close Look At The Latest Research Trends Within The Dental Treatment Consumables Market

A dental implant is a surgical component that is connected to the bone of the jaw or skull. It is used to provide support to crown, bridge, denture or act as an orthodontic anchor. The process involves the use of materials, such as titanium to form strong bond between bones. This process is known as Osseointegration. The time associated with osseointegration is case dependent. Dentists use CAD/CAM technology to understand the positioning and alignment of dental implants.
