PowerUp is a CEA-Liten spin-off founded in 2017 dedicated to improving the management and maintenance of Li-ion batteries. Our technology called M.A.P.® is used to provide an accurate diagnosis of the state of health of batteries in real operating conditions and to adapt their charge accordingly thanks to the knowledge of their aging mechanisms. This knowhow is based on ten years of deep tech research and a portfolio of patents and expertise transferred to PowerUp by CEA-Liten.

PowerUp dynamic charge method can double batteries lifetime in their real environment, ensures predictive maintenance and so reduces positively waste of batteries. Our solutions are dedicated to BtoB customers who have economic, reliability and ecological issues and we are now working with French groups and industries as SNCF, EDF, Legrand…

NGK Insulators, Ltd., founded in 1919, is a Japan-based company mainly engaged in the provision of ceramic products. NGK was the first in the world to commercialize a NAS® battery system which is characterised by large capacity, high energy density and long life. By storing fluctuating renewable energy such as wind and solar during off-peak times, NAS® batteries safely and efficiently supply reliable power during peak demands. With a capacity of six hours, NAS® batteries are the green alternative to fossil fuel peak plants. NAS® batteries can additionally provide any type of application depending on your needs, like deferral of grid and generation investments, provide on-peak / off-peak price arbitrage, frequency regulation, ramping services, voltage control and other grid functions.

ENTROVIEW is incubated at Grenoble INP in the Gipsa-lab laboratory. It is funded and supported by SATT Linksium Grenoble Alpes.

ENTROVIEW develops a Battery Intelligent System (BIS) which is an additional layer to the BMS, and enables efficient, safe and durable use of the battery.

The BIS offered by ENTROVIEW is based on real time thermodynamic measurements, allowing a more thorough analysis of the battery than with conventional measurements. The solution covers the entire battery life cycle, from the R&D phase through its use to a possible second life.

The BRGM is the French Geological Survey Organisation and France’s public reference institution in Earth Science Applications for the sustainable management of surface and subsurface resources (including mineral resources) and risks.

Its programmes focus on scientific research, support to public policy development, safety and monitoring of former mining sites and international cooperation. The BRGM aims to meet key challenges for society, particularly those related to climate change, energy transition and the development of the circular economy. Through its scientific program on Mineral Resources and the Circular Economy, the BRGM works to support the ecological transition towards an efficient, sustainable & responsible management and supply of primary and secondary mineral resources, including recycling solutions.

The BRGM develops observation methods to assess and predict the mineral resources life cycle along industrial value chains. In particular, it undertakes economic intelligence studies (Monitoring and analyses of world metals markets, criticality analyses) and promotes a global vision to allow a more comprehensive understanding of the economic, geopolitical and environmental issues related to the origins and availability of these resources on the markets. Building on geoscience as their core competence, the BRGM teams also develop innovative actions, including improved exploration methods and process development for metal/mineral production and recycling, in order to make mineral resources available in the frame of a more circular economy.
