Cryogenic innovation, future of the energy transition.

It is a matter of urgency to transform the means of production, distribution and use of energy. Since 2010, the Groupe Absolut has been developing innovative cryogenic technologies that respond to the challenges of decarbonisation and energy efficiency.

Energy transition & technological innovations

The Groupe Absolut has been recognized for 12 years by its capacity to innovate and its unique know-how in multi-sector cryogenics.

With expertise in the development of complex cooling systems, our teams are changing energy management and the use of alternative energy sources. The Groupe Absolut responds to technological issues, taking into account the challenges of profitability and feasibility. With a wide range of experience in the spatial, industrial and scientific research fields, we are continually expanding our know-how.

 

With cryogenic systems on the cutting edge of technology, we improve the performance of energy production, distribution and use.

 

Based in Grenoble, we contribute to the development of the French industry by maintaining a network of regional, national and European partners.

Our Actions

Cryogenic innovation for decarbonisation, reliability and control of the energy infrastructure.

The Groupe Absolut has a unique know-how in cryogenic technology, i.e. refrigeration below -180°C and the liquification of gases (hydrogen, nitrogen, helium, etc.).

 

Thanks to this expertise and our recognised ability to break down technological barriers, for example in superconductivity and liquid hydrogen, we are anticipating the major changes in our energy system (increase in demand, reliability, intermittence, decarbonisation).

production

Production

Broaden and decentralise systems for power supply.

The Groupe Absolut provides technological tools to modify the energy production system to lower the cost of renewable energies, develop new energies and decentralized power generation.

Tokamak operation (nuclear fusion) : high performance cryogenic coolers.

 

The development of mega-wind turbines thanks to superconductivity: superconducting generators.

distribution

distribution

Reducing energy transport costs.

We enable the deployment of infrastructure for the distribution of hydrogen and electricity. We take into account the problems of dimensioning and availability of energy.

 

Our systems provide for the roll-out of innovative infrastructures for the distribution of liquid hydrogen and electricity:

Liquefaction and distribution of liquid hydrogen

 

Electricity transport in highly constrained environments (offshore, cities, bridges, tunnels, etc.)

LIQUID HYDROGEN

By reducing the volume of hydrogen through liquefaction, we increase storage density. This reduces operating costs and facilitates access to liquid-to-liquid hydrogen..

SUPERCONDUCTIVITY

Superconductivity increases the efficiency of electrical transport by removing heat dissipation losses. It is suitable for high-stress environment (offshore cables, dense urban areas, etc.).

utilisation

USE

Developing the use of liquid hydrogen and the electric power in mobility.

We are pioneers in the design of cryogenic technology bricks for for low-carbon mobility. The Groupe Absolut is investing in the development of strategic technologies to develop low-carbon mobility with an economic and environmental vision for 2030.

Super low mass electric propulsion systems for aeronautics.


Solutions for the use of on-board LH2 for heavy mobility : air, rail, sea and road.

Environmental monitoring

Monitor, understand and act with relevance and efficiency.

By providing satellite data to develop effective energy strategies, we help greenhouse gas emitting companies to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.
