Renewable energy and Energy efficiency
Fuel cells are widely accepted as one of the best potential solutions to extend the range of battery-powered electric vehicles. CEA Tech institute Liten has been conducting low-temperature PEMFC (proton exchange membrane fuel cell) R&D for years; these fuel cells are designed for both transportation and stationary applications.
Liten is active across the entire fuel-cell value chain (with the exception of the membrane), working to improve electrode materials, come up with more effective ways of assembling fuel-cell components, enhancing catalysts, and integrating smart capabilities into fuel-cell systems. The objectives of this research are multiple: improve system lifespans; reduce the amount of platinum (a rare, expensive metal) required; and achieve competitive total cost of ownership to ensure that fuel cells become an economically-viable alternative to current solutions.

Leveraging its own cell technology, batterymanufacturer Prollion collaborates with itscustomers to develop industrial battery systemsmade to operate at the highest level of excellence.
How to collaborate with CEA Tech teams ?
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
