This ‘Innovator Challenge’ will be run by the Energy Launchpad at government-backed innovation agency Energy Systems Catapult in collaboration with Climate-KIC and supported by Energy Capital – part of the West Midlands Combined Authority.

The aim is for some the UK’s most innovative Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) to develop products and services with the West Midlands; innovations that enable the integration of low carbon solutions within urban buildings and commercial estates or optimise energy networks supplying West Midlands industry.

High calibre candidates applied from across the UK, that are developing innovations, including:

Zero carbon domestic, commercial or industrial heating solutions

Leveraging data from end users, infrastructure and networks to create new services and business models that accelerate the transition to Net Zero

Interoperable digital control systems that deliver more efficient and flexible operation of a whole building or estate energy system

Grid Scale Battery Energy storage to mitigate constraints points for renewable connections

Delivering cleaner transport solutions

User-centric approaches that help to reduce fuel poverty

The 18 SMEs will get access to a range of advanced energy system expertise and specialist business support to help innovators unlock new routes-to-market, secure investment and breakdown barriers to growth.

Members of the Innovator Challenge advisory board will help to introduce SMEs to potential partners working on innovation projects across the West Midlands, including those in Energy Innovation Zones. These five unique zones were established to support the acceleration of low carbon innovations to address the key challenges of this call: Integration / Heat & Fuel Poverty / Alternative Transport Solutions.

“Achieving Net Zero will require close coordination across the energy system and arguably most crucially between the built environment, transport infrastructure, industry, and commercial energy consumers” said Paul Jordan, Business Lead for Energy Launchpad at Energy Systems Catapult. “Innovation that enables an interoperable relationship across sectors, consumers, technology, generators and distributors is fundamental. Delivering low carbon energy solutions, while simultaneously creating economic benefits to the wider community whilst lowering energy and running costs - will be crucial in achieving the UK’s Net Zero goal.”

The 18 innovative business chosen were:

Advanced infrastructure



Block Dox

Carnego Systems

City Science

Connected Response

Cumulus Energy Storage








SEaB Energy

I was just going through some blog online when I met a testimony of this BLANK ATM CARD made by Ethical360 (Ethicalcyber90 at gmail  or WhatsApp No +1 731 325 7573/Text +1 707 278 6129 ) I contacted that very address and I got one at an imaginable rate.(compared to what the card carries, the rate is minimal) At first I thought, it was gonna be some scam or something. But when I got the card I could get nothing less than $10,000 in a day. (ten thousand usd). The card Activate and ready to use immediately you receive the card Here is the testimony I saw; “Its the programmed ATM card that can hack into all ATM machines. Its works with any currency and in any country where you might be living. It is programmed in a way that when a transaction is carried out with the card ,it can’t be traced. To make use of this card ,you need no account number or even pin of anyone. It\'s simple because there is a manual attached that teaches usage ,and also gives more explanation concerning the card.” So friends, it\'s a new year and a new beginning. If you need funds to start up some business, pay up bills and loans or money to live a good life? Then you have to make this opportunity yours. Though it is illegal as you and I know ,since the government can’t satisfy my whole needs, I have to do what I have to do, to get what I want and for my family to be happy. Though this post is not for everybody, but for those who truly need change from a poor state to a wealthy life.
