Liten: Future Energy Technologies

Liten (Laboratory for Innovation in New Energy Technologies and Nanomaterials) is an institute forming part of the CEA's Technological Research Division. It is one of Europe's leading research centres in the new energy technology field.

It works to support the nation's efforts to diversify its energy mix through more effective use of renewables, in particular to meet energy requirements in transport and housing and to help French businesses gain a competitive edge. Involved in 400 research partnership contracts every year, Liten works hand in hand with French industry. It is one of the CEA laboratories with the most patents (200 new applications filed in 2012) and a portfolio of 840 international patents.

Liten's research activities are focused on renewable energy sources (solar energy, biomass), energy efficiency (vehicles, low-energy buildings, hydrogen technology, electric power system management, etc.) and, lastly, high-performance materials for energy applications.

Low-carbon energies


The availability of an energy conditions the economic and social development of a country. In spite of the efforts of sobriety and the improvement of the energy efficiency that it will make, the world is going to have to face growing needs for energy. The field of constraints is very strong, the energy transition is necessary and the CEA, with the skills which are his, wishes to make there all his contribution as a leading player of the research and the innovation in the field of the energy.

Workshop SUBSTITUTION OF CRITICAL RAW MATERIALS - IMPORTANCE FOR EUROPEAN INDUSTRY - 16th september 2013, Warsaw - POLOGNE


The goal of this open workshop is to present results achieved by the FP7 project CRM_InnoNet (www.criticalrawmaterials.eu) on European industrial dependence on critical raw materials and to open a discussion for identification of next generation technologies which could act as substitutes. The focus is on three strategic sectors: Energy, Transport (Aerospace and Automotive) and ICT.

We warmly invite all who are willing to engage into a dialogue to exchange ideas and visions to enhance the competitiveness of the EU industry and economy in the area of substitution of critical raw material to join us in Warsaw, Poland in mid September 2013!

Alstom and CEA-Liten create a laboratory dedicated to energy storage and solar integration into Smart Grids


Alstom Grid and the teams of the French state-owned research entity CEA - INES (Institut national de l'énergie solaire) announce the creation of a joint Research and Development Centre in Chambery (France). This joint laboratory will focus on developing advanced energy storage solutions and integrating renewable energy farms into smart transmission and distribution grids.

This laboratory will be located in INES' Chambery campus. It will directly benefit from its core expertise in storage and solar applications as well as its existing testing capability across various ranges of solar and storage technologies. Alstom Grid, Alstom's sector dedicated to power transmission, brings its expertise in power electronics, power conversion and Smart Grid control room integration. This partnership has been put in place to develop early breakthrough innovation by expanding services and solutions to accelerate the deployment of embedded storage into Smart Grid systems and facilitating further introduction of renewable beyond the European target of 20% of the energy mix by 2020. The teams will also further investigate the potential use of direct current (DC) applications into smart cities projects.

The International Renewable and Sustainable Energy Conference(IRSEC'13) on March 2013


The Polydisciplinary Faculty of Ouarzazate, the Mediterranean Space of Technology and Innovation with the partnership of the Moroccan Agency of Solar Energy (MASEN) organize the First Edition of the International Renewable and Sustainable Energy Conference.

IRSEC'13 is an international scientific conference that provides an excellent opportunity for discussion and knowledge exchange for researchers, policy-makers, engineers and other specialists with an interest in issues related to renewable energy. It is supposed to spark discussion within the academic community and to bridge the gap between practitioners and experts.

IRSEC'13 covers a wide range of topics related to renewable energy technology, energy efficiency, green energy, climate change and sustainable energy systems.

Arkema and CEA set up two new joint laboratories dedicated to micro-electronics and organic electronics


Arkema and CEA are to extend their existing collaboration in photovoltaics to the field of micro-electronics and organic electronics by setting up two joint research laboratories. These public-private mixed laboratories will enable the development of new ultra high performance materials and their integration within manufacturing processes in growth areas of the electronics sector in France.

Both laboratories will pool Arkema's expertise in the design and production of high performance polymers with the competences of CEA researchers in the design and processes involved in the development of electronic components.

The CEA-Leti (Laboratoire d'Electronique et de Technologie de l'Information) and CEA-Liten (Laboratoire d'Innovation pour les Technologies des Energies Nouvelles et les nanomatériaux) laboratories constitute world-class applied research centers, in microelectronics and information technologies for the former, and in new energy technologies for the latter.

As part of its collaboration with Liten, Arkema, which markets a group of leading technical polymers (fluorinated, piezoelectric, nanostructured thermoplastic polymers), will be able to meet the technological challenges of the large-area printed electronics sector (flexible screens, intelligent packaging and textiles, photovoltaic panels), such as lifetime of the systems, cost of manufacture, and integration of several functions onto a single support. In fact, the use of organic materials, rather than silicon, opens up a new field of printable, transparent and flexible components that can be integrated into large-area printed electronic products.
