Ubik Solutions shows up at Tallinn Entrepreneurship Day
We could not miss a great opportunity to be present on 18th annually organized inspiring event - Tallinn Entrepreneurship Day to share our knowledge and experiences in the field of innovative, clean & sustainable power electronics.
Today, on 28th of September, we had an opportunity to talk about Inter-sectoral mobility grant that Ubik Solutions managed to get for the implementation of the innovative project for the Direct Current (DC) microgrids battery systems called “Modular Battery Energy Storages for Residential DC Microgrids”.
The financial support is provided for employment of researchers with a doctoral degree at Estonian private and public sector entities to plan and implement applied research and product development projects (experimental developments). This project allowed us to hire a very competent scientist that recently got his PhD in the field of power electronics in TalTech to work in this project for 2 years - Oleksandr Korkh.
According to the Estonian financial newspaper, “Äripäev” Ubik Solutions was one of few companies that got this grant. Its main objective was to increase a cooperation between different sectors, namely:
· Increase competitiveness of business and public sectors through the involvement of qualified research and development staff
· Expand the career model of academic personnel through temporary work in Estonian private and public sectors
Thanks to this grant, Ubik Solutions is going to make a breakthrough in the applied design of high-performance cost-effective power electronics systems for better integration of battery energy storages systems to DC grids. This goal will be achieved by the acquisition of cutting-edge knowledge in topologies, control, and optimization methods for residential battery storage, which will fill the gaps, push innovation forward and accelerate the industrial uptake of the highly promising DC grids.
The activities for the following 2 years include continuous development, prototyping & testing, both in-house and with market participants, as well as production preparation and cost optimization, marketing, and sales activities to enter to the DC microgrid market. The successful implementation of our project will allow us to obtain a demonstrator that can be tested and validated both internally and with our partners in various demo projects to meet all market requirements.
We do believe that such projects, which allow to exchange the knowledge and experience between academy and businesses, will significantly contribute to the development of the Estonian economy and add more global visibility to Estonian science, especially in the field of power electronics for renewable energy applications.
