Avec l’avènement des énergies renouvelables, le stockage représente un défi technique et économique majeur, en particulier le stockage longue durée. On pense aux barrages, mais le Valais pourrait bientôt voir apparaître une autre option proposée par GRZ Technologies, une start-up issue de l’EPFL Valais.

Top 100 Swiss Startup Award for GRZ Technologies, Sion, Cleantech

20 years of research are among the top 100 of the latest company to develop hydrogen storage, which is safer and more efficient and has a higher energy density than previous storage. Co-founder Andreas Züttel (president) researched among other things at EMPA on the storage of hydrogen in metals. Since 2014, the professor has been Head of the Laboratory for Materials for Renewable Energies at the EPFL Valais/Wallis in Sion. GRZ is the first spin-off at this location.

Constance we wish you all the best and a lot of success and satisfaction with your new challenges! We thank you so much for the fantastic time we had with you. Your professionalism, efficiency, motivation, and kindness we appreciated very much and it is hard to believe you only spent one year with us seeing all the work you did. You finished with just an other highlight by carefully introducing Miriam in all the aspects of the administration of the research group and allowing her a smooth start. You are the brilliant example of a perfect administrative assistant or better administrative and financial manager. Thank you very much!

Description
Authored by 50 top academic, government and industry researchers, this handbook explores mature, evolving technologies for a clean, economically viable alternative to non-renewable energy. In so doing, it also discusses such broader topics as the environmental impact, education, safety and regulatory developments.
The text is all-encompassing, covering a wide range that includes hydrogen as an energy carrier, hydrogen for storage of renewable energy, and incorporating hydrogen technologies into existing technologies.
