Decommissioning of energy assets powered by space

Introduction to the ESA planned Invitation to Tender on decommissioning of energy assets

Thursday 23 April 2020
11am – 12pm

delivered by
Giulia Manzetti, Space Solutions Department at the European Space Agency (ESA) & Davide Coppola, Project Manager & Business Developer at the European Space Agency (ESA) will deliver a presentation covering:

What can space do to support the decommissioning of energy assets?
The Space Solutions department of the European Space Agency supports the development, implementation and pilot operations of downstream space-based services. These applications utilise data from existing space assets, such as Satellite Communication, Earth Observation and Satellite Navigation, in combination with terrestrial technologies, to deliver sustainable services for the benefit of user communities.
ESA offer includes financial support, technical and business expertise, as well as network and partnership building.
ESA Space Solutions intends to launch a new Invitation to Tender, to assess the technical feasibility and commercial viability of satellite-based services in support of decommissioning of energy assets. Any resulting studies are also intended to establish the roadmap for service implementation through follow-on demonstration projects.
