European Space Agency - Space for Green Construction
The European Space Agency’s "Space for Green Construction" opportunity offers support and funding to companies looking to develop services supporting sustainability in the construction lifecycle using space-based technology and/or data. This opportunity enables companies to carry out in-depth analyses of the technical feasibility and economic viability of applications across several domains.
The construction process involves several lifecycle stages each comprised of various activities from which embodied greenhouse gas emissions and waste are thought to arise. These are applicable to various infrastructure projects, for this initiative we consider the construction lifecycle of "hard infrastructure", including buildings, roads, runways, motorways, railways, bridges, tunnels, waste-water treatment works, water treatment works, pipelines, wells and boreholes, power-generating plants, chemical plants, refineries, dams and reservoirs, mines and quarries, offshore structures, near-shore works, ports, waterway works, shipyards, land formation and reclamation, among others.
The services proposed should attempt to support the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and/or waste in the construction lifecycle of hard infrastructure, this could relate to one or more of the following stages: Design, Produce and Construct, Operational Use, End-of-Life and Beyond-the-Lifecycle.
A webinar is scheduled on 21 September 2022 at 15:00 CEST to explain the call.
