Speeding innovation for industry
Article | Technical and economic aspects of energy
Smart grids must be capable of meeting rapidly-changing needs while providing a reliable, secure, cost-competitive energy supply—despite new energy challenges on both the supply and demand sides.
CEA Tech develops information and communication technologies (ICTs) that enable a more effective observation of grid and energy flows. These solutions can also help transform consumers into prosumers through smart-energy algorithms capable of managing production, consumption, and storage.
A power-component test bench with photovoltaic-type aging capabilities was developed under the Memphis project.
Liten, a CEA Tech institute, recently joined forces with France’s energy agency ADEME to assess the benefits combining electricity storage and renewable energy production could bring to micro-grids connected to the main grid on the island of Corsica.
Liten, a CEA Tech institute, has developed a tool to predict concentrating solar power (CSP) plant production based on forecasts of direct solar irradiance.
Integrating gallium nitride(gan) - on-silicon power components into converters. With Exagan’s GaN-on-silicon technology,tomorrow’s electric power converters will be smaller, more efficient, and less expensive.
Steadysun’s software can make highly accurate
solar plant output predictions anywhere in world
and in conjunction with any type of technology.
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.
