ECCI’s Smart Accelerator - Shortlist of Selected Projects Announced at All Energy – Opportunities for SMEs

09 April 2014

ECCI is set to announce the shortlist of projects selected to benefit from the 18 month £1.2 million Smart Accelerator project at All Energy 2014.

All-Energy 2014, the UK’s largest renewable and sustainable technologies event, returns to the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre from 21-22 May.

Smart Accelerator will support and accelerate the formation, packaging and financing of up to 12 Scottish project partnerships that support Scotland’s transition to a low carbon economy and society through creating smarter and more sustainable cities, communities and islands.

Come along and see ECCI at Stand L31 at All Energy. 

Smart Accelerator will create the enabling framework for at least 12 “smart” city regions and sustainable islands projects to be delivered in Scotland combining resources, research and talent, and by engaging with and partnering innovative SMEs.

The Smart Accelerator project wants to actively engage with the SME community by:

  • Gathering project ideas from SMEs and adding them to the Accelerator long list for evaluation
  • Involving SMEs when the short list of projects has been selected by either using and paying for their expertise and knowledge to move the projects forwards or by using their products within the proposed supply chain
  • Making funding available to provide key resources to support projects move forwards.
