Fuel Cells Works, GENIUS: the Project Around the Production, Storage and Use of Green Hydrogen Obtains Funding of €2.8 Million

As part of the 2021-2027 State-Region plan contract (CPER), Centrale Nantes has just obtained funding of €2.8 million to set up the GENIUS project, a test platform around the production, storage and use of green hydrogen.

Launched at the end of 2021, the GENIUS project (Intelligent GEstioN of green energies (or EnR) for electric vehicles Smicrogrid-fuel cell/electrolyzer, storage (hydrogen, battery, super-capacitor)-EnR (pv, wind)) is directly linked to the roadmap of the Pays de la Loire region on hydrogen and is part of the Hydrogen strategy of Centrale Nantes

It is brought to Centrale Nantes by Malek Ghanes, University Professor at the Nantes Digital Science Laboratory (LS2N) and head of the Renault-Centrale Nantes chair .

Develop a test platform around the production, storage and use of green hydrogen

In order to strengthen the skills and visibility of the school and laboratories in the field of the energy of the future (electric), this project is fully in line with the axis of energy transition, and aims to develop a test platform for the intelligent management of energies from renewable sources on a scale of 1 for applications linked to transport (electric vehicles in particular) and stationary (buildings, low-voltage network, etc.)

Hydrogen as an energy carrier being considered as an emerging sector, the GENIUS project aims to combine the fuel cell/electrolyzer association and seasonal storage in the form of hydrogen to supply isolated or non-isolated networks .

At the same time, such a chain of production (with hydrogen storage) and energy consumption will make it possible to design power architectures ranging from production/storage/consumption for transport-related applications.

The GENIUS project is financed by the State, the Pays de la Loire Region, Nantes Métropole and the FEDER.
