Kick-off meeting of the H2020 Harvestore Project coordinated by IREC

Today, December 18th, the Harvestore kick-off meeting is held at IREC led by the project coordinator Albert Tarancón, head of the Nanoionics and fuel cells group.

Harvestore is a new 5-year European project for the development of beyond-state-of-the-art technologies in the field of Internet of Things.

The “μ-harvestorers” developed in this project will be able to collect and store energy from heat and light at the same time, in order to serve a whole family of new-generation portable devices. They will be powerful, small, and environmental friendly.

Harvestore puts together some of the main actors of science and technology across Europe. Research, technology centres and advanced industries from 6 different countries have joined their efforts with the goal of opening-up a new technology paradigm in the world of IoT.

The Harvestore Project Consortium is made up by: AEInnova, CNRS, Coventry University, DTU, Horiba Scientific, IMB-CNM-CSIC, IMEC, Imperial College London, IREC, TU Wien, Worldsensing.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 824072.

IREC contributes to the IFMIF LIPAc fusion materials test facility in Japan

From 17th October 2018 to 5th November 2018, members of the bFUS group of IREC, in collaboration with CIEMAT, have been contributing to the installation of the HEBT (High Energy Beam Transport line) and the Beam Dump of the Linear IFMIF Particle Accelerator (LIPAc) at Rokkasho, Aomori, a northern prefecture of Japan, in the framework of the IFMIF/EVEDA project.

The International Fusion Materials Irradiation Facility (IFMIF) aims to provide an accelerator-based, D-Li neutron source to produce high energy neutrons at sufficient intensity and irradiation volume for DEMO materials qualification. As part of the Broader Approach (BA) agreement between Japan and EURATOM, the goal of the IFMIF/EVEDA project is to work on the engineering design of IFMIF and to validate the main technological challenges which, among a wide diversity of hardware includes the LIPAc, a 125 mA continuous wave deuteron accelerator up to 9 MeV mainly designed and manufactured in Europe.

IREC has been involved since 2011, in collaboration with CIEMAT, in the design and the manufacturing follow-up of several components of LIPAc, mainly the Medium Energy Beam Transport Line (MEBT), the Diagnostics Plate, the High Energy Beam Transport Line (HEBT) and the Beam Dump.

The Cell3ditor project wins the innovation prize from the FCH JU AWARDS 2018

Cell3ditor project, led by the group of the ICREA Prof. Albert Tarancón at IREC, wins the innovation prize from the FCH JU AWARDS 2018. Congratulations!

The ambitious goal of the Cell3editor project is to develop ‘tabletop factories’, in the form of 3D printers which can make monolithic solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) stacks with embedded functionality. This is a great opportunity to achieve product flexibility, simple design for manufacturing and slash the time-to-market, waste material and manufacturing steps (shaping and thermal treatments). In addition, lowering initial investment by an order of magnitude will open the SOFC market to new players that will boost the supply chain and generate new high-skill jobs.

The Cell3Ditor project is coordinated by the Fundació Institut de Recerca de Energia de Catalunya (IREC). It has the support of the Joint Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Company of the European Commission, an entity that has the objective of contributing to research activities such as this, thus accelerating the entry into the market of this type of technological creations. The project consortium is formed by companies and research institutions from 6 different EU countries: 3DCERAM (FR), Promethean Particles (UK), FAE (ES), SAAN Energy (SE), HyGEAR (NL), DTU (DK), ULL (ES).

IREC will be present at Smart City Expo World Congress

IREC will be present at the Smart City Expo World Congress (SCEWC 2018), participating in the Smart Cities event, a meeting point for intelligent city sectors and an innovative platform for urban action worldwide.

IREC will be at SCEWC 2018 from November, 13th to 15th at Stand 19 of Generalitat de Catalunya, Hall 2 D413, presenting some of our products: Low energy districts modelling tool, Energy Aggregator, iEnergy Box, HVAC economizer and the RESCCUE tool for resilient cities.

Likewise, will actively participate co-organizing the Workshop on “Low energy districts in the GrowSmarter project” in SCEWC, in collaboration with other partners of H2020 GrowSmarter project. We will be glad to welcome you and meet you at this open workshop! SmartCity Expo in Barcelona at the Ajuntament de Barcelona: Room 1.1 CC1 on November 15th from 9h00 to 11h00.

We look forward to seeing you in SCEWC 2018, November 13th to 15th. You can't miss it!
