Renewable energy and Energy efficiency

Published on 15 April 2016

CEA Tech is helping drive the development of renewable energy through research on production—PV and bio-based energy in particular—and is looking at ways to store renewable energy and convert it into electricity if needed. The goal is to help give renewables a larger share of France’s energy mix

Efficient energy storage solutions will be crucial to smoothing out intermittent renewable energy production and aligning supply and demand. Batteries are the main focus of CEA Tech’s energy storage research; the battery advances made at CEA Tech apply to both stationary and mobile uses.

CEA Tech is also tackling ways to reduce overall energy consumption in two very energy-hungry sectors: buildings and industry.
