Management and commercialisation – novel renewables technology
We led the UK-based NOVA consortium, which included representatives
from three universities – Cranfield, Strathclyde and Sheffield – the Centre
for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture (CEFAS) and SME Wind
Key sub-contractors included James Ingram & Associates and
QinetiQ and the consortium was funded by the Energy Technologies
Institute (ETI), a unique partnership between global industries and the UK
The NOVA (novel offshore vertical axis) project focused on
designing cutting edge offshore wind turbine technology and aimed to
provide 1 GW of power from offshore vertical axis turbines.
We managed the programme, facilitating the many stakeholders:
• Consortium members
• ETI and industry partners
We also led the commercialisation part of the project scope including:
• Roadmap development
• Options facilitation and selection
Our consultants, scientists and engineers redefine what’s possible and help R&D groups across the medical, industrial, consumer and food and beverage sectors achieve commercial return from their opportunities.
We have completed over 10,000 projects for start-ups and global market leaders alike, from understanding the market & technology landscape through to developing and delivering complex products.
