BUILDING A LOW-CARBON ENERGY SYSTEM FOR THE FUTURE
The increasing penetration of intermittent renewable energies and the emergence of new electrical uses will impact the service provided. CEA researchers are especially focused on energy storage and conversion systems to help create a multi vector and multi-network energy system, especially :
-Multi energy vectors
-Smart grids and demand management
-Advanced materials and circular economy
-Energy scenarios governance and economic models
Future tech for small and medium nuclear reactors:
NUWARD™ is a concept that combines proven solutions, innovative licensing and manufacturing, innovative solutions to gain competitiveness: simplicity and compactness of an integrated design, flexibility in the construction and operation phase, innovative approach to compliant safety to the best world standards.
NUWARD™ is designed to allow the replacement of coal fuel based electricity plants.
The NUWARD™ initiative is carried by the CEA, EDF, Naval Group and TechnicAtome.
