2 partnership Diploma delivered by Coordinating school : Contributing ParisTech schools : Supporting companies :

3 program goals To provide students with the necessary conceptual, theoretical, and experimental foundations in renewable energies to start a career in academia or industry: o With a PhD thesis in a state-of-the-art research team o As a researcher or project manager in an industry research laboratory, in energy agencies or companies o As Project Manager, Business Unit Manager, etc in industry in either the technical or business spheres o As specialist in energy strategies for large companies or SMEs in the field of renewable energies

4 program at Ecole Polytechnique M2 - Ecole Polytechnique & ParisTech Renewable Energy Science and Technology Opened: September 2011  Energy-focused courses in the following domains: Photovoltaics / Energy Vectors and Storage / Energy Distribution Networks / Wind and Hydro Power  General courses : Socioeconomic Issues / Topical Seminar Series / Project Management, Innovation and Entrepreneurship M1 - Ecole Polytechnique Energies of the 21 st Century Core courses: mainly Physics and Mechanics Overview of the energy domain (resource, climate, nuclear technology, photovoltaics, fusion…) Full curriculum taught in English

12 French National Project (IEED) Location : Ecole polytechnique campus IPVF ( Institut Photovoltaïque d’Ile de France )

13 13 IPVF in a few words Creation of a national institute with a faculty staff p, budget of about 200 M€ (for 10 years) and building m 2. Collaboration between academic and industrial partners : CNRS (French National research council), Ecole polytechnique, Total, EDF, HORIBA, RIBER, AIR LIQUIDE Objective : breakthrough on future PV technologies for a competitive energy cost on the international market, based on the use of high technology platforms High quality formation of the international students required by the PV laboratories and the industrial R&D centers (REST Master program) Located on Plateau de Saclay (Ecole polytechnique campus) in order to take advantage of the best european scientific environment

14 14 The IPVF strategy based on the innovation triangle In order to obtain ambitious objectives, the IPVF strategy is based on three main pillars :  Research : high technological experimental platforms used by the best PV research teams at the international level  Developpement : R&D industrial research including development of pilot lines  Education : the IPVF equipments will be used by international Master students on renewable energies (Master program REST), and PhD students. IPVF Development Education Research Innovation Triangle
