Harnessing energy is one of the key challenges facing the scientific community.

To cope with the impacts of climate change, renewable energies have established themselves, along with other sources of carbon-free energy, as one of the alternatives open to us.

Among these, solar energy has decisive advantages: inexhaustible for serving human needs, accessible to everyone and available in great quantities.
Today, it appears obvious that the photovoltaic sector will be one of the preferred building blocks for energy transition.

AN INSTITUTE FOR ENERGY TRANSITION

IPVF is supported by the French State within the “Investissements d’Avenir” (Investments for the Future) programme. Its regulatory authority is the French Secrétariat Général Pour l’Investissement (SGPI) (General Secretariat for Investment) which is one of the Prime Minister’s Departments.

IPVF was granted the status of Institut pour la Transition énergétique (ITE) (Institute for Energy Transition) by the SGPI.

Under this umbrella, it benefits from financial support from the Programme d’Investissement d’Avenir (PIA) (Investment for the Future Programme) headed by the Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR) (National Research Agency), in the form of a €18.5M grant over the first six years of its existence.
