Energy & Environment: National strategy for accelerating the field

Decarbonized hydrogen

Carbon-free hydrogen is an essential energy vector for climate neutrality. It makes it possible to green entire sectors of the economy, in particular those for which electrification is impossible, in industry or mobility. It also participates in the rise of renewable energies.

Recycling and reincorporation of recycled materials

The Covid-19 global health crisis has revealed our vulnerability for the treatment of our waste. The development and strengthening of efficient and competitive recycling channels is an opportunity to reduce our withdrawals of natural resources and reduce the environmental impact of our production and consumption methods.

Advanced technologies for energy systems

The strategy aims to promote the development of a French industry in new energy technologies with three priority sectors: photovoltaics, floating wind power and energy networks.

Example of current calls for projects :

Technological bricks and hydrogen demonstrators

Goal

Develop or improve components and systems related to the production and transport of hydrogen, and its uses such as transport or energy supply applications;
Support demonstrator, pilot or commercial first projects on national territory, allowing the sector to develop new solutions and to structure itself.

Beneficiaries

Companies alone or in collaboration, in particular with research laboratories

Projects

Total cost of the project from 2 to 5 million euros minimum depending on the theme.

Public co-financing

Mix of grants and repayable advances, depending on the nature of the project and the size of the company.

Closing Date

December 31, 2022

Innovative solutions for improving recyclability, recycling and reincorporation of materials

Goal

Demonstrator projects developing new products, technologies, business models or services, making it possible to develop recycling and thus contribute to the transition from a linear economic model "manufacture, consume, throw away" towards a more circular model.
Expected projects along the value chain: product design; waste collection and sorting; material preparation; reincorporation of matter.

Beneficiaries

Companies alone or in collaboration, in particular with research laboratories (not mandatory)

Projects

Minimum project cost amount of 1 to 2 million euros depending on the themes

Public co-financing

Mix of grants and repayable advances, depending on the nature of the project and the size of the company.

Closing Date

July 26, 2022

Innovative solutions and technologies for batteries

Goal

Pursue efforts to develop a national offer, from the extraction of strategic materials to recycling around 4 priority themes:
Manufacture of lithium-ion battery cells;
New battery electrochemistry;
Battery manufacturing and reconditioning processes;
Innovative systems and battery packs.

Beneficiaries

Companies alone or in collaboration with up to 6 partners, including at least one SME or ETI.

Projects

The expected projects must propose innovative solutions related to the priority themes.
Budget greater than 2 million euros for individual projects (threshold lowered to 1 million euros for individual projects led by an SME) and greater than 4 million euros for collaborative projects.

Public co-financing

Terms of financing: 50% of the total budget (including tax) of the project, with the exception of collective projects or projects carried out by VSEs and SMEs, for which a bonus rate of 70% will apply.
Project duration: up to 36 months maximum
