Research network on electrochemical energy storage,
Research center on batteries and supercapacitors


  • The Russian investment fund RUSNANO develops opportunities for the country in the field nanotechnologies. They awarded Patrice Simon and his colleague Yury Gogotsi the RUSNANOPRIZE 2015 for their contribution in the field of supercapacitors (a kind of battery that uses nanotechnologies).
  • Following the deliberation of the jury Dr. Gregory Wildgoose was honoured by the first edition of the YESS award at Batteries 2015 in Nice. The jury was unanimous about the innovative quality of his project using frustrated Lewis pairs in a new battery concept.
  • You have strong skills in chemistry and physical chemistry of materials and are interested by electrochemical energy storage? RS2E seeks candidates in September 2015 for permanent researcher positions. You can send your resume and cover letter before the 24th of July to
  • On May the 28th 2015, the foundation stone of RS2E’s headquarters (tentatively named « HUB ») was laid in Amiens by the financial backers of our research network. A hundred people (researchers, industrialists and journalists) gathered at University of Picardy Jules Verne to celebrate the beginning of our new research and tech transfer building’s construction.
  • French researchers have greatly contributed to these breakthroughs. Unfortunately much of the industrial developments are currently made in Asia. A French industrial stands apart: Saft. Founded in 1918 in the southwest of France, the company is producing rechargeable batteries for multiple markets!
