The LEPMI, a laboratory member of Carnot Énergies du futur institute, ranks on the worlwide top fifteen laboratories on electrochemical storage topics.
The LEPMI, a laboratory member of Carnot Énergies du futur institute, ranks on the worlwide top fifteen laboratories on electrochemical storage topics. This study was based on 5 high-potential technologies and has demonstrated the notable ranking of Grenoble's laboratories in this field.
The study has been carried out by both researchers from the LEPMI laboratories and the TKM consulting firm on 5 key-technologies:
- Lithium metal
- All solids
- Lithium sulfur
- Organic compounds
The study has also determined the academic and industrial major key players in this fields and then has defined the current position of Grenoble's academic laboratories with the help of various indicators such as the number of scientific materials (scientific papers, patents...), the number of scientific citation, etc. Grenoble's laboratories are particularly noteworthy on the lithium metal technologie (4th rank on scientific materials, 2nd on citation).
The TKM consulting firm is currently organising meetings with key players companies on skills development and patents. Thanks to this project, the Grenoble scientific community will be able to submit new research projects, to identify new partners and reinforce intellectual property.
The LEPMI laboratory gathers various skills in the electrochemical field such as energy production and storage with the support of process engineering. From electrolyte's fundamental study to running generators modeling, the laboratory LEPMI aims to develop knowledge and know-how in the electrochemical field.
