Contributing to the emergence, development and promotion of innovative energy solutions.
The French Cluster for the Energy Transition
Created in 2005, the Tenerrdis energy cluster supports sustainable economic growth and the creation of long-lasting jobs in the new energy technology industries. It coordinates a 244 members network spanning industry, government, academia, and scientific research to address the challenges of the energy transition.
SEEING THE BIG PICTURE
Tenerrdis strives to remain at the leading edge of trends like distributed energy, the digitalization of the energy industry, grid flexibility, and carbon-free energy. The cluster’s focus industries are shaping the energy and digital revolutions.
Solar | Hydroelectricity | Biomass & biogas | Wind | Hydrogen | Energy grids & storage | Energy-efficient buildings |
When it comes to the future of energy, Tenerrdis sees the big picture. The cluster’s leaders bring deep knowledge of new energy technologies to a broad slate of markets and applications: construction, industry, smart cities, mobility, and smart and interconnected grids.
Tenerrdis also unites stakeholders from the public and private sectors to encourage the implementation of innovative local energy solutions that will drive the energy transition in our cities, energy-plus communities, industrial parks, mountain regions, and at remote sites.
6 strategic activity domains
The cluster focuses its action and its assistance to its membes on 6 domains.
- Renewable energy production and integration into the energy mix
- Energy conversion and storage
- Embedded intelligence & cybersecurity for energy systems
- Multi-energy microgrids
- Carbon-free mobility
- Energy-efficiency for buildings and industry

About France’s national cluster network
The French government launched the nation’s cluster network in 2004 to revitalize France’s regional economies and help France achieve or maintain its position of leadership on key international markets through cooperative initiatives made possible in part through government funding at the national, regional, and local levels.
Following an open call for proposals, 67 clusters—including Tenerrdis—were selected in July 2005.
