Nuclear and renewables can work together to decarbonise our energy consumption, by increased electrification of certain sectors and adaptation to the supply of heat, or even hydrogen or synthesised hydrocarbons to vreplace gas and oil.
The building and transport sectors are the leading energy consumers in France. Reducing their environmental impact is thus a key challenge of energy transition.
CEA, AN ENERGY TRANSITION STAKEHOLDERBy Daniel Verwaerde, CEA Chairman
Electricity storage is essential to the correct working of the grid as it progressively integrates higher rate of intermittent energy sources. Various technologies are today being studied for short and medium-term applications: electrochemical, chemical (hydrogen) and thermal storage solutions.
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.
