ABOUT US

NATHALIE is an EU-funded project that will analyze new strategic markets for the Ultra High Temperature Thermal Energy Storage (UHTES) technology developed in the frame of the recently finished AMADEUS project.

The project will asses strengths and weaknesses of UHTES technology with the aim of position it into existing and future energy value chains.

In particular, the project will focus on two main applications of UH-TES: 1) Commercial and institutional buildings, and 2) Industrial process heat and power.


OBJECTIVES

ANALIZE

NATHALIE will analyze at least 2 sectors of activity: 1) Commercial and institutional buildings (Hotels, Hospitals, Sport centers, etc.) and 2) Industrial process heat and power (Breweries, Dairies, textiles, etc.)

ASSESS

NATHALIE will asses the strengths and weaknesses of UHTES technology and have a first technical concept confrontation with market trends. 


POSITION

NATHALIE will position UHTES technology solutions into existing and future energy value chains, considering infraestructure, legistaltion and competition. 

METHODOLOGY

GATHER INFORMATION

NATHALIE will gather information from a wide variety of sources, including intelligent scouting tools and questioning key opinion leaders with various backgrounds in the selected market segments.

ANALYZE

NATHALIE will use 1) Porter 5 forces analysis to define the technology microenvironment; 2) PESTEL analysis, to get a macro-environment picture; and 3) SWOT analyses to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the technology.

DEFINE

Based on the gather data and subsequent market analyses, NATHALIE will define the requied technology specifications for each analysed market sector.
