IMPULSE 2025: Teréga announces its partnership with EPFL and UPPA

To mark the launch in Paris of the 10th European Utility Week, an annual international event dedicated to Smart Grids and the sustainable use of energy, Teréga, a key player in the energy transition, has entered into a partnership with the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and the Université de Pau et des Pays de l'Adour (UPPA) to support the development of the IMPULSE 2025 demonstrator (Innovating and Mobilising to Unify Power Systems).

“Teréga is pleased to combine its expertise with the skills of leading specialists in energy systems. We are united around the same goal: the execution of the IMPULSE 2025 project, a necessary new approach to the energy system. This project will allow us to demonstrate that it is through the optimisation of existing resources that we will meet many of the challenges of the ecological and energy transition.” Dominique Mockly – Chief Executive Officer of Teréga

In France, every energy system generates an average of 25% to 60% loss. Local energy accelerator Teréga seeks to implement innovative solutions that will build tomorrow's energy models and optimise energy consumption. A collaborative project, IMPULSE 2025 aims to roll out a multi-energy system with a mission to launch operations in 2025 on several industrial sites such as the Lacq basin in Béarn.

This facility is part of the “Territoire d'industrie” initiative: a vast support system for sectors with a strong industrial dimension linking Lacq, Pau (64) and Tarbes (65).
