- Analysis of the behaviour of the systems for the optimisation of their operation and the establishment of sizing rules, evaluation on line of the safety of systems
- Mapping of sites favourable for the installation of such systems using GIS (Geographical information systems), "Atlas olien" for France
Great skills in the fields of the wind power :
- forecasting of wind power in the short term :
- evaluation of wind potential onshore and offshore
- optimal integration of the wind power in a grid, evaluation of the impact of large scale integration
- development of tools used to maximise the competitiveness of this intermittent resource
- Management of electrical systems, modelling


Systems multi-energy based on renewable energy :
- PV/diesel
- Wind/diesel
Storage technologies : fuel cell, hydrogen cell


Special experimental resources :
- Test benches for natural solar radiation, thermal and photovoltaic solar power
Development of forecasting models, in particular for wind power, based on statistical and artificial intelligence approaches : stochastic approach and use of meteorological sets to model the uncertainties of forecasting
Geographical information systems (GIS) for the planning of the Renewable Energy sources (ENR)
Use of the satellite imaging
