Periodic Reporting for period 1 - Vertical Sky (Vertical Sky, the next generation wind turbine for sustainable, silent and decentralized energy production.)
Reporting period: 2019-08-01 to 2019-11-30
Technically, the control system has been reviewed to better define the requirements for the further development of the Vertical Sky software for pitch control. The processes for manufacturing of the physical components of Vertical Sky, including a new gearbox and tubular tower design, have been analysed and a route for their optimisation proposed. A programme of further testing and the future EIC Accelerator project have been proposed. Technical risks associated with those have been identified, as well as associated mitigation actions.
Commercially, a detailed market analysis has been prepared, including also regulatory and certification issues. Intellectual property rights have been examined to confirm the freedom to operate. Based on this a commercial strategy has been developed, including communication and disseminations activitites.Commercial risks have also been identified and mitigation actions proposed.
Financially, the financing needs of the project and the projections for the company have been calculated.
