Renewal of partnership between Storengy and IFPEN

Storengy and IFP Energies nouvelles renew their research and development partnership

Storengy and IFP Energies nouvelles (IFPEN), through its IFPEN Ressources Energ├ętiques Carnot Institute programme, have renewed their partnership.

Following on from the initial framework agreement signed three years ago aiming at developing collaborative research and innovation in the field of energy transition.

This partnership relies on the two companies' complementary expertise and skills - notably in geosciences, digital technologies, physical chemistry and mechanics - in order to accelerate the implementation of industrial projects.

The areas of application concerned by the agreement are:

  • energy storage;
  • geothermal energy;
  • hydrogen;
  • digital transformation;
  • digital tools.

Review of the first partnership

As part of the first framework agreement (2018-2021), significant research was carried out on water filtration in geothermal energy, the conversion of gas wells for hydrogen storage, hydrogen thermodynamics, the development of calculation and optimisation tools adapted to new energies, and the definition and development of digital learning models devoted to predictive maintenance of the assets.
Drawing on this experience, Storengy and IFPEN will continue to develop innovative technologies for clean energy production and storage.

"We are delighted to be continuing our collaboration with Storengy, which is an acknowledged player in the sectors of renewable-gas storage and development, as well as new energy solutions. Partnerships with industry are at the heart of IFPEN's DNA. They allow us to promote our research and ensure our work remains relevant to the needs of the market,"

Pierre-Franck Chevet, CEO of IFPEN.

"Storengy is extremely happy to be renewing this partnership with IFPEN. It provides a fantastic opportunity for joint research and development projects, with a view to proposing concrete, innovative and reproducible solutions that will contribute to a carbon-neutral economy,"

Camille Bonenfant-Jeanneney, CEO of Storengy
