Sustainable Electricity Production and Management

The Sustainable Electricity Production and Management (PROGELEC) programme is based on three former programmes: "Intelligent Housing and Photovoltaic Solar Energy (HABISOL)", "Innovative Energy Storage (Stock-E)",  "Hydrogen and Fuel Cells" (H-PAC).

The programme intends to accelerate the French research for developing renewable energies and integrating innovative systems allowing an optimized electricity management. The objectives are to reinforce the partnerships between the industrial and scientific communities, and to improve the competiveness of the French technologies by favoring technological breakthroughs. The programme also intends to support more fundamental research allowing new industrial orientations to be prepared at mid-term.

The objectives of the PROGELEC programme are :

  • To develop innovative  electricity production systems from renewable energies, especially from photovoltaic solar energy;
  • To manage the intermittent production through the development of buffer storage systems ;
  • To develop performing stationary and on-board storage and/or production systems ;
  • To pilot domestic and mobile usages of electricity ;
  • To design reliable and « intelligent» devices for energy management from multiple sources.
