On January 13, 2015 Institut Carnot Energies du futur will present the joint research projects in the field of new energy technologies it supported in 2013–2014.
Once again this year Institut Carnot Energies du futur is one of the leading Carnot institutes in terms of technology transfer. It boasts an annual consolidated operating budget of €190 million, €64 million in annual revenue from R&D contracts, and nearly 700 scientific publications and 220 new patents per year. The institute is a consortium of CEA-Liten labs and academic labs from Grenoble Institute of Technology, Grenoble University Joseph Fourier School of Science, and CNRS. Former LMGP Director François Weiss took up the directorship of the institute last February.
This year was marked by a large number of projects in the field of energy-efficient buildings. Next year the institute will focus its scientific pump-priming efforts on hydrogen-energy research.
