ACCELERATE YOUR GREEN TRANSITION THROUGH SPACE

Win an 8-week strategy process to a value of 100.000 DKK with the ESA BIC Denmark & DareDisrupt to help your company work towards a green transition boosted by space.

April 12, 2021

What and why?
Satellite applications can play an essential role in the development of green services across many sectors of industry. 

Now you have the opportunity to win an 8-week strategy process to a value of 100.000 DKK with the ESA BIC Denmark & DareDisrupt to help your company work towards a green transition boosted by space.

The process aims to focus on green transition by utilizing the accelerating development in satellite technology across industries of Denmark. The strategy process will be tailored to the strategic starting point of your company and identify how you can integrate satellite applications for a more sustainable business. It is not a demand that you have worked with technology or data related to space technology today. We will identify the opportunities for you. 

When? 

Submit your application from April 12 to May 21 in the below link.  

On May 28, we will host a webinar for all participants. The purpose is to announce the winner and to give all participants input and inspiration for their further process. 

Who? 

  • The applicant must be a company with at least 10 employees. 

  • No industry-specific requirements. 

  • Not a requirement that the company has identified possible potentials for space technology in advance

Evaluation criteria 

We will select the winner from the submitted applications. The assessment is subjective and will emphasize the company’s:  

  • Motivation to participate in the process. 

  • Maturity from previous technology-driven innovation or the company´s motivation to work with technology driven innovation.  

  • Assessed potential in introducing space technology and/or satellite data into your company’s products and services.

HOW CAN SATELLITE APPLICATIONS ENHANCE A GREEN TRANSITION?

ESA Space Solutions has published a report that sets out how satellite applications can support sustainable development. 

Read below examples from the report to get inspired by how satellite applications can enhance a green transition. 

SATELLITES REPLACING HELICOPTERS

Weather data can improve energy production forecasts, satellite data can be used to optimise the positioning of wind and solar farms, and telecommunications can be used to improve operation on offshore and remote farms. 

The company GridEyeS uses AI and satellite earth observation to monitor power lines, reducing the cost and time of electric lines inspection by replacing ground-based crew, helicopter or drones inspection with satellite data analytics.

SPACE GUIDES AUTONOMOUS ROBOTS TO REDUCE CARBON FOOTPRINTS

Courier robots and delivery drones, which rely on navigation technologies, could reduce cost, time and footprint associated with logistic. 

E.g. the company TeleRetail´s uses robots in their on-demand service to deliver goods autonomously to serve rural and suburban markets along with city residence by using computer vision systems, sensors, satellite imagery and satellite navigation for autonomous navigation and precise location.  

TRACKING SUSTAINABILITY FROM SPACE 

Satellite navigation can track and trace goods from origin to endpoint, helping suppliers comply with sustainability regulations and goals. And dynamic routing can optimise waste collection, while satellite navigation can help tracking and tracing of dangerous waste.

SATELLITES SAVES ENERGY 

IoT sensors and space-based data can analyse a building´s natural surrounding and built environment to assess risks like flooding and help safely plan and monitor construction. In addition, services can use satellite earth observation data to monitor energy consumption, identify areas lacking in thermal efficiency and detect zones that are contributing to the heat island effect.

Energy supplier E.ON and Earth Observation specialists at Astrosat have developed a tool to report on the thermal efficiency of house. ThermCERT pinpoint households in fuel poverty or those at risk and helps to prioritise where energy efficiency measures are needed most in the UK.

SPACE ENABLES SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE 

Satellite imagery and weather data can improve irrigation and optimise fertiliser usage by precisely monitoring and detecting changes. Plus, satellite earth observation can be used to detect pests and reduce the need for harmful pesticides. Finally, remote sensing enables yield to be better predicted and crop health better monitored.

For example, our Incubatee ClearSky Vision provides multi-spectral cloudless satellite imagery with satellite data. Having up-to-date images can help ease various problems within agriculture, e.g. minimise unnecessary fertiliser use with variable rate technology or improve anomaly detection and classification

SATELLITES REDUCE CO2 EMISSIONS 


Satellite navigation and observation can improve strategic planning of transport infrastructure and management of fleets to reduce fuel consumption and harmful emissions.
