The Sustainable Electricity Production and Management (PROGELEC) programme is based on three former programmes "Intelligent Housing and Photovoltaic Solar Energy (HABISOL)", "Innovative Energy Storage (Stock-E)", "Hydrogen and Fuel Cells (H-PAC)".

The programme intends to accelerate French research for developing renewable energies and integrating innovative systems allowing optimised electricity management. The objectives are to reinforce the partnerships between industrial and scientific communities, and to improve the competitiveness of the French technologies by favoring technological breakthroughs. The programme also intends to support more fundamental research allowing new industrial orientations to be prepared at mid-term.

The objectives of the PROGELEC programme are:

  • To develop innovative  electricity production systems from renewable energies, especially from photovoltaic solar energy;
  • To manage the intermittent production through the development of buffer storage systems;
  • To develop performing stationary and on-board storage and/or production systems;
  • To pilot domestic and mobile usages of electricity;
  • To design reliable and "smart" devices for energy management.

This programme is open to Franco-Canadian projects within the framework of a cooperation with the Canadian-CRSNG for the axis 1, 3, 4 and 5.

It is also open to Franco-Finnish projects within the framework of a cooperation with the Finnish Tekes.

The modalities of these collaborations are described in a specific appendix called "Conditions of submission, evaluation and selection ", available below.
