Transitioning to a reliable energy system and reducing dependence on fossil fuels in a context of increasing resource scarcity, rising energy needs and climate change, is a thematic priority of the Framework Program for Research and Innovation of the European Union.

Within the framework of research into safe, clean and efficient energy, we work in lines such as renewable energies, energy efficiency in buildings and industry, batteries, generation and energy storage systems, hydrogen and renewable fuels and in new knowledge and more efficient and cost-competitive technologies.

In addition to the development of computational models with our own code, we have the most advanced CFD and structural computational calculation commercial tools to respond to the calculation needs of different sectors (automotive, aerospace, naval, food, etc.). In this sense, to the experience acquired through the execution of multiple projects over the years, both in direct collaboration with companies or through competitive calls, is added a computational power cluster of 95 TFLOPs with a total of 1560 cores.

At CINTECX we have extensive experience in projects in the renewable energy sector, with projects and work on biomass combustion and gasification, with solar energy, wind energy or energy of marine origin.

We work on the development of materials for lithium ion batteries, in a new concept that involves corrosion and the properties of oxides, conversion layers, in general, for energy storage.

In the field of energy efficiency in buildings, we have experience in creating dynamic models of the energy behavior of buildings and in predicting their indoor air quality. This allows us, for example, to develop a digital twin model of a building. We are using modeling to optimize energy mixes, especially renewable energies such as photovoltaics and electric vehicle recharging.

We collaborate with the International Energy Agency applying all this knowledge to the development of new efficiency indicators that will constitute the future of energy certifications and labels for buildings.
