A long-standing strategic area and driver for nuclear energy, Paris-Saclay now has sufficient technological clout to position itself as an intelligent energy management cluster with a view to becoming one of the most innovative regions in France and Europe in terms of the energy transition.
When it comes to energy, Paris-Saclay forms part of an technological continuum that encompasses major energy companies, application projects and the construction of districts that can act as living energy laboratories. The region hosts leading energy producers together with a dense, dynamic network of innovative SMEs that play the role of technology providers.
Three institutes for energy transition (ITEs) have recently been recognized: the Île-de-France Photovoltaic Institute (IPVF), the Paris-Saclay Energy Efficiency Institute (PS2E) and the Védécom Institute for carbon-free communicating vehicles.
In addition, one of the research areas selected by the SystemX Institute for Technological Research, which specializes in digital engineering, is the development of the digital interfaces needed to manage an increasing number of energy sources and uses.
