Energy transition and research

As part of its Sustainable Development and Corporate Social Responsibility Action Plan, Centrale Nantes aims to:
  • Bring research themes into line with international and national sustainable development objectives, in particular for energy transition
  • Assess and manage the direct impacts of research. The Research Laboratory in Hydrodynamics, Energetics & Atmospheric Environment (LHEEA) is the national lead laboratory for the CNRS's Labo1.5 approach.
  • Promoting and encouraging ethical thinking in relation to the responsible conduct of research and innovation
    In 2021, ethics training was introduced for the school's PhD students. This training was run by Laurent Stainier, professor at Centrale Nantes, researcher at GeM, scientific integrity referent at Centrale Nantes and member of the school's Ethics and Professional Conduct Committee, Pierrick Guégan (CRED) and Jérémy Ohana (LHEEA).

Research in support of energy transition

Energy transition is both an environmental obligation and a lever for industrial development. The development of renewable energies, such as marine energies, requires breakthrough innovations in energy storage and transport systems. Finally, the school's research into engine systems and reducing pollutant emissions supports multi-disciplinary training.

Energy production is responsible for the majority of greenhouse gas emissions (...) Centrale Nantes researchers are involved in new renewable energy production systems. They are also working on energy efficiency (...) and lifestyles and different ways of living in cities and regions.
Emmanuel ROZIÈRE, Director of Sustainable Development at Centrale Nantes.
