CEA (Le Commissariat à l'énergie atomique et aux énergies alternatives)
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organization. With more than 15,000 researchers and co-workers, its activities cover four main areas: Energy, Defence & security, Health & information technologies, and Fundamental research. Located in Grenoble, the Laboratory for Innovation in New Energy Technologies and Nanomaterials (LITEN) is around 1,000 people working on energy R&D (fuel cell, batteries, biomass, and solar application). CEA-LITEN has a unit dedicated to energy for transport application (Department of Electricity, Hydrogen and Transport, DEHT) which has more than 10 years experiences in new materials for Li-ions batteries. Today, this entity is equipped with a dry room of 300 m3 dedicated to Li-ion batteries prototyping from the electrode material up to the cell and more than 600 m3 dedicated to Li-ion module and pack system development. CEA-LITEN intellectual properties portfolio on Li-ion batteries is more than 100 on the topics of material synthesis, battery architecture, and BMS. CEA-IRAMIS is located in Saclay and is involved in fundamental research in particular for Energy applications and develops materials with tailored properties such as core@shell nanoparticles.
