Operating through the IFPEN Transports Energie Carnot Institute, IFP Energies Nouvelles (IFPEN) has published the findings of an economic, energy and environmental study into French road transport technologies in the lead-up to 2040, co-funded by the ADEME.
LES4ICE aims at providing a forum for international exchanges concerning research and development of Large-Eddy Simulation and related experimental techniques for their application to energy conversion in transportation applications.
[currently being updated] Since they were invented, cars have mainly operated with 4-stroke internal combustion engines. In Europe, these have either been gasoline (spark ignition) or diesel engines. Major technological progress has made it possible to increase the efficiency of IC engines in order to save fuel and significantly reduce
Reducing CO2 and pollutant emissions, diversifying energy sources and incorporating the evolution in transport modes: these are the challenges associated with sustainable mobility for industry. IFPEN channels its expertise into addressing this triple challenge, within the framework of the IFPEN Transports Energie Carnot Institute. Its technological offer is structured around
The Carnot IFPEN Transports Energie, a member of the Carnot network for more than 15 years! The Carnot IFPEN Transports Energie was awarded the “Carnot Institute” label by the French Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation as soon as it was launched, in 2006. It has been pursuing its
IC powertrains Our strengths Outstanding design simulation tools and experimental validation resources: modeling tools developed by our teams and used for our research activities, comprehensive experimentation facilities: engine test benches, rolling test benches, climatic test benches, optical diagnosis, HIL test benches. Expertise sought by the public authorities within the framework
IC powertrains Our networks Groupement Scientifique Energies et Mobilités (GSEM) Created in 1980, the GSEM brings together IFPEN, Renault and Stellantis in a joint research effort on thermal engines. Over time, the partnership has adapted to evolving technologies and market needs. “The GSEM conducts preliminary research: • (evaluation of concepts
IC powertrains OUR solutions In order to reduce the environmental impact of IC engines, IFPEN is working to increase their efficiency and reduce pollutant emissions. They also aim to identify low-carbon fuels (natural gas, biofuels and synthetic fuels or E-Fuels and hydrogen) with the most favorable energy and environmental performance
