C’est un grand plaisir d’accueillir Switch Energy, nos nouveaux voisins au sein du Biopole de Rennes. L’entreprise développe un système révolutionnaire de génération d’électricité à partir de gradients salins.

L’entreprise, installée à Rennes au sein de la pépinière Biopôle, a développé Blue Energy ; cette solution permet de produire de l’électricité en exploitant la différence de salinité des eaux. Concrètement, il s’agit de séparer l’eau de mer et l’eau douce grâce à une membrane de quelques nanomètres d’épaisseur installée par exemple dans un estuaire. Grâce à cette innovation, l’entreprise vise un double objectif : produire une énergie renouvelable continue et non carbonée tout en abaissant considérablement le coût du dessalement.

Last thursday we celebrated our first year in Rennes Biopole. We were the first company to enter in the building in September 2014 (yes, it’s more one and a half years!) thanks to the help of “Rennes Metropole”, the owner. So, we wanted to “mark the occasion” with our partners and, of course, we wanted to thanks them ! Nothing was possible without them !

Many things occurred last year : R&D developments in many domains, first contracts with pharma industries, partnerships with equipment builders, launch of great project combining computing, engineering and biology (sorry it’s secret!) and the integration in Eurasanté program in Lille.

See you next year !

Official inauguration of the biopole Rennes

January 29 took place the official inauguration of the Biopole, the bulding where we rent a 120 m² privative facility. Many politician and representative of the Brittany region, the “Ille-et-Vilaine” department and the metropolis of Rennes were present and held to visit our facility.

We are very proud to underline this mark of interest and the support we benefit, in particular from the Metropolis of Rennes. It is always a question that matter for a young start-up to reassure its partners about its strength. So this is a very satisfactory step for us, as it will help to ensure our growth, through equipment acquisition and new recruitments.

We was very pleased to inaugurate our offices and our laboratories in the beautiful building of “Rennes Biopôle” this week. It was an important moment for us because of the presence of all our partners and supports. We want to thank them again.

You can find our supports on this page. Now, you’re welcome to visit us !
