“National Award on Renewable Energy Storage“

1. Preamble & Objective

In the current context of the development of renewable energies in Algeria, the storage of energy is of paramount importance in view of its random and discontinuous nature, from production to exploitation. Important recommendations announced in the Council of Ministers meeting held on February 05, 2023, concerning the development of energy storage systems which need to be taken into consideration by the scientific research sector in order to find innovative solutions with the socio-economic sector cooperation. For this purpose, the Universities as well as the Research Centers will play a primordial role in the development of this activity in Algeria through the promotion of products resulting from scientific research and technological development created by students and researchers in the field of renewable energy storage.

On this occasion, the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research (MESRS), through the General Directorate of Scientific Research and Technological Development (DGRSDT) launch a call for the national prize on the storage of renewable energy in collaboration with:

- The Center for Renewable Energies Development (CDER),

- The Center for Research in Semiconductor Technology for Energy (CRTSE),

This prize concern:

1.     Students who developed prototypes in the field of energy storage and have a Startup Label issued by the Ministry of Knowledge Economy, Startups and Microenterprises.

2.     Researchers and university professors who have created their Spinoffs in the field of renewable energy storage.

2. Eligibility conditions

Projects participants eligible for the "RE-Stor" Prize must have the following Eligibility Criteria:

1.     Have a Startup Label in the field of Energy Storage (Student);

2.     University student, researcher or university professor;

3.     Have a Spinoff (Researcher and or university professor);

4.     Member of a research laboratory, a university incubator, or attached to a higher education institution; or to a national research organization;

5.     A detailed business plan.


3. Validity of the offer and Application submission

The validity of the offer contained in this call is fixed to 31 July 2023
