PREDIS - University innovation training centre for distributed energy


Technological platform


PREDIS is an innovation and training centre on distributed energy. More specifically, it is a demonstration tool on the smart management of the energy representing a physical energy network as similar as possible to actual network. This tool makes it possible to connect various modes of decentralised energy production to different uses through an expert monitoring system.

PREDIS is located on the St Martin d'Hères university campus over 2,500 m2 in the buildings of the Grenoble INP/Ense3 school of engineering.
The PREDIS centre was jointly created by ENSE3 and G2Elab, and is composed of a set of technological platforms geared towards production, distribution and uses of energy, which illustrate the "smart grid" concept.

The centre focuses on three aspects, Training / Research / Valorisation, and is at the heart of major regional and national projects: the renewable energy cluster, Carnot Institute "Energies du Futur" and the Tenerrdis competitive cluster, which approved PREDIS in 2006. This centre has been set up with cooperation from lecturers and researchers at Grenoble INP, the Joseph Fourier University and CNRS. A large number of partnerships are developed at PREDIS with the key players in the energy sector, CEA Grenoble and local authorities.
