Energy obviously represents a major socio-economic and environmental challenge for the coming decades. The strategic, economic and financial stakes are enormous.
GIANT has a number of significant advantages in new energy technologies and intends to become a world-class centre for expertise in the field. The laboratories and institutes address the major scientific and technological topics in the energy sector:
- production, particularly renewable energy in photovoltaics, biomass, wind and water power, energy storage, notably using hydrogen and fuel cells.
- GIANT partner institutions and companies are also working on collaborative projects that cover several thematic areas in the field of nuclear energy.
This research is underpinned by a multi-disciplinary training program.
