ENERGIES | ENERGY STORAGE | BATTERIES
H2020 project NAIADES proposes to develop a new generation of battery based on the sodium ion technology aiming for a drastic cost reduction compared to traditional lithium-ion technology for stationary Electric Energy Storage (EES) application.
NUCLEAR ENERGY | NUCLEAR REACTORS | 2ND AND 3RD GENERATION REACTORS | NUCLEAR SAFETY
To ensure the safe long‐term operation of existing European nuclear power plants, the H2020 project SOTERIA proposes a comprehensive research approach in order to enable nuclear power plant operators, as well as regulators, to better understand and thereby predict the ageing phenomena occurring in reactor pressure vessels and internal steels.
PHOTOVOLTAIC SOLAR POWER | SOLAR ENERGY | RENEWABLE ENERGIES
The European HERCULES project targets the development of the next generation of photovoltaics in Europe in developing high efficiency solar cells and modules to reach a reliable, sustainable and cost-competitive PV technology from the lab to factories.
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.
