AREVA Energy Storage, a subsidiary of AREVA, is a major industrial company of the hydrogen energy sector. Its activity relates to the development and marketing of solutions for producing hydrogen by electrolysis and for producing electrical and thermal energy based on fuel cells.

Major player in various markets

AREVA designs, manufactures and markets systems based on electrolyzers and fuel cells of the PEM (Proton Exchange Membrane) type. Initially the subject of research and development, the fuel cell is now finding applications in the markets and today AREVA Energy Storage is a major industrial company operating in targeted high-potential markets.

Several markets interest AREVA Energy Storage:

  • Stationary applications, with the problems of permanence of the electrical power supply and of the hydrogen and oxygen supply locally.
  • Transport applications, with the captive fleets, such as road and sea freight, and the "extreme" environments such as deep sea exploration.
  • Teaching applications, such as the instruction tools for teaching fuel cell technology.

Solutions adapted to the development of the sector

The solutions are defined from the client's needs and adapted to the problems specific to each environment. For example, a solution for local generation of electricity coupled with wind or solar power to permit permanent generation of electricity and balancing of the power grid.

The "off the shelf" products make it possible to provide the client very quickly with a product which fulfills a typical requirement. This is the case, in particular, of the instruction benches and electrical backup units.

Development of the hydrogen sector

Furthermore, AREVA Energy Storage is heavily involved in the development of the hydrogen sector particularly:

  • Through partnerships with public organizations and research laboratories,
  • In the Programme d’Actions National pour l’Hydrogène et les piles à combustible (PAN’H) (National Action Program for Hydrogen and fuel cells), as well as in the European programs,
  • Also in the competitors' research partnerships, more particularly the Capénergies research partnership (Partnership researching energy sources which do not generate greenhouse gases).

Certified and lasting activities

Based at the Europôle Méditerranéen de l’Arbois in Aix en Provence, an area of activities devoted to the environment, AREVA Energy Storage has ISO 9001 (quality management) and ISO 14001 (environmental management) certification. The company is a "Installation Classée pour la Protection de l’Environnement" (ICPE) (Installation Classified for Protection of the Environment), concerned and respectful of its stakeholders.

Optimize renewable energy

AREVA offers the opportunity to optimize the benefits of renewables.
With its Greenergy BoxTM, it is possible to store energy for redistribution according to fluctuations in demand, especially during peak consumption.
AREVA is also able to produce hydrogen for industrial uses or alternative only by water electrolysis. Hydrogen production is one of very few processes without any CO2 emissions.
