SuperGrid Institute SAS, France
Contact Person: Michel Mermet-Guyennet
www.supergrid-institute.com

The Institute for Energy Transition (ITE) Supergrid is a collaborative research platform in the field of low-carbon energy, bringing together the expertise of industry and public research in the logic of public-private co-investment and close cooperation between all stakeholders of the sector.

The institute aims to develop technologies for the Supergrid that is the future electricity transmission network, using direct current and alternating current at very high voltages (in the order of one million volts), designed to transport large-scale energy from renewable sources remote from load centers, a significant portion of which are offshore, which will be in connection with flexible storage resources; to manage the intermittent nature of renewable energy; and also, to ensure the stability and security of the network.


thyssenkrupp Presta AG, Liechtenstein
Contact Person: Katja Stengert
www.thyssenkrupp-presta.com

At Thyssenkrupp around 155,000 employees work to develop innovative products and solutions for sustainable progress. With an engineering expertise in the three areas of Material, Mechanical and Plant, the group enables its customers to gain an edge in the global market.

Within the Components Technology sector, automotive products such as steering systems and camshafts can be found.

Steering systems which formerly had been purely mechanical products, have become much more comfortable with hydraulic servo assistance which is now being more and more replaced by electromechanical steering systems (EPS). During this evolution, Thyssenkrupp Presta has acquired  the necessary knowhow in electronics and power electronics.

Of course, also steer-by-wire projects are already in the focus of the company, knowing that autonomous driving will surely get reality within the next years.
