What is RS2E?

RS2E stands for Réseau sur le Stockage Électrochimique de l’Énergie which means Network on electrochemical energy storage. We are a research and technology transfer network committed to the field of electrochemical energy storage through its research centers and industrial partners:

  • the Centre for Academic Research composed of CNRS’ (French National Centre for Scientific Research) and Universities’ scientists. It benefits from a highly collaborative environment involving both French and international researchers,
  • the Centre for Research and Technological Integration composed of 3 publicly owned companies. It designs prototypes stemming from researchers’ discoveries,
  • the Industrial Partners – small and major companies – bring to the RS2E their specific needs and expertise. They will use RS2E’s discoveries in industrial products (cellphone batteries, electric vehicles, storage of renewable energies…). Click here to see the list of our Industrial partners.

The goal of RS2E is to bring together researchers involved in electrochemical storage, to provide both incremental discoveries and major breakthroughs as well as develop the French expertise in the field of electrochemical storage. On this regard, it is a French counterpart to the North-American JCESR (Joint Center for Energy Storage Research).
