IFP Energies nouvelles
IFP Energies nouvelles (IFPEN) is a major research and training player in the fields of energy, transport and the environment. From research to industry, technological innovation is central to all its activities.
Its areas of expertise include:
- climate, environment and circular economy,
- renewable energies,
- sustainable mobility,
- responsible oil and gas.
As part of the public-interest mission with which it has been tasked by the public authorities, IFPEN focuses on:
- providing solutions to take up the challenges facing society in terms of energy and the climate, promoting the transition towards sustainable mobility and the emergence of a more diversified energy mix;
- creating wealth and jobs by supporting French and European economic activity, and the competitiveness of related industrial sectors.
An integral part of IFPEN, its graduate engineering school – IFP School – prepares future generations to take up these challenges.
IFPEN has proven expertise across the entire value chain, from fundamental research to innovation. It is funded both by a state budget and by resources provided by industrial partners. The latter account for over 50% of IFPEN’s total budget, a configuration that is unique in France.
The aim of IFPEN’s R&I programs is to overcome existing scientific and technological challenges in order to develop innovations that can be used by industry.
IFPEN’s fundamental research program aims to create a library of knowledge essential for the development of innovations.
The scientific expertise of IFPEN’s researchers is internationally recognized and they are regularly consulted by the public authorities to provide their insight in their specific fields to inform the decision-making process.
