Pilot Projects

  • Strengthening research capacity in Tunisia in the field of polymer electrolyte fuel cells (PEMFC) and in the field of hydrogen.
  • Tests and tests of new proton exchange membranes on the pilot station carried out at CRTEn
  • Didactic tool for engineering students
  • Tests and tests on the hybrid pilot plant for water desalination and electricity generation: acquisition of real experience with this new system concept
  • Sizing of a desalination plant operating at ER
  • Testing and control of converters and inverters
  • Storage of energy
  • Energy Management
  • Cost optimization through high-performance automation, necessary for adapting working conditions to the variation of electrical energy supplied by renewable energy systems (solar and wind), and remote maintenance


  • Watch and Communication
  • Marketing Research Results (RR) and Services of CRTEn
  • Detection of innovative projects
  • Accompaniment, guidance and advice to innovative project promoters (financing, assembly of projects, ...)
  • Partnerships with the socio-economic environment at national, European and international level
  • Organization and co-organization of national and international workshops, seminars and conferences
  • Promotion of quality and implementation of a quality management system according to ISO 17025
  • Strengthening quality infrastructure for solar energy
  • Study of fluxes at the boundary layer using the large wind tunnel of the CRTEn (4 m long and a cross-sectional area of ​​1 m2.) Since 2010, it has a PIV (particle image velocimetry). The result is checked using probes that have been externally calibrated in order to exclude possible interference and is considered suitable for the calibration of the anemometers in Compliance with the required limits

Technology Platform

  • Under today's conditions, and now more than ever, CRTEn requires the construction of a technological platform where the large CRTEn equipment acquired on the Japanese credit will be housed. The platform will include testing and testing laboratories, laboratories with major technological resources, and possibly an incubator. It can bridge the wide gap between public research and private sector demands. In this way, the CRTEn will be called to innovate and give new directions to research in the field of renewable energies, while creating synergy with the major national sectors (STEG, ANME, etc.) and international sector. The role dedicated to this technological platform will enable the CRTEn to remain attentive to companies working in the different sectors in the energy field and to represent an important and unique national support for postgraduate training and innovative industrial development in An evolving multidisciplinary field (particularly renewable energies). The technological platform will partially solve the problem of heavy equipment, it will be a bridge with our future partners and the Office of Technology Transfer (BuTT). This platform will in particular:
  • Advice and technology watch, this is the part of our activities towards the companies. To make available to the heads of companies and managers of research or production offices tools enabling them to solve their problems or refer them to competent structures. However, we remain committed to the "general interest" mission of the platform, which is expressed through the awareness of companies and the general public, the strengthening of companies' skills or simply the accompaniment of innovative projects.
  • Propose product or process development projects at BuTT and then propose these technologies to companies.
  • Technical services invoiced to companies and academic institutions outside the technopole: design, analysis, product or process development, prototyping, characterization, testing and measurement. The platform will rely on technicians and engineers from different laboratories, to take advantage of their advanced skills according to the subjects.
  • Training of professionals: it is one of our strengths to be able to offer "tailor-made" training to companies wishing to train their personnel in renewable energy technologies. The training provided can be integrated into the company's training plan and be financed by the collecting bodies.
  • Develop, exploit and value the new competitive technologies of solar energy (thermal and photovoltaic), wind energy and other forms of clean energy.
  • Creating a synergy favorable to the attraction of foreign investors and their implantation on the technopole through a quality research and development.
  • Play an important role in post-graduate training, working with higher institutions and engineering schools operating in areas related to renewable energies in general.
  • Furthermore, we believe that this platform will be a focal point for the transfer of knowledge and technology and the creation of strong synergy and lasting collaboration with internal and external laboratories as well as with the socio-economic world .
  • Example of pilot actions at the platform level:
  • Tests and quality performance tests (durability and reliability) for sensors and solar thermal systems, compared to national and European standards respectively (-> standardization, control).
  • Testing and performance testing of PV modules of different technologies.
  • Google
