– The RIMA Alliance was initiated from the RIMA EU-project. The project received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 824990
The seminar captures synergies and best practices between on- and offshore wind, solar, and hydroelectrics, exploring the role I&M robotics can play in reducing carbon emissions.
SPRINT Robotics and RIMA Network will co-host “Focus on Clean Energy: The Impact of Robotics for I&M”.
The race is on to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.
Clean energy is gathering speed and industries are rapidly shifting their focus to new markets.
Robotics for I&M are poised to play a significant role in the transition to clean energy, as on- and offshore wind energy are undergoing a period of explosive growth and solar is one of the fastest-growing renewable power sources. Wind and solar farms present significant opportunities for use I&M robotics, helping to improve efficiency, reduce costs, and increase safety and productivity.
The seminar “Focus on Clean Energy: The Impact of Robotics for I&M” captures synergies and best practices between on- and offshore wind, solar, and hydroelectrics, exploring the role I&M robotics can play in reducing carbon emissions and contributing to a clean energy future.
