The race is on to innovate to develop new sources of energy in order to help fight climate change. Marine energies are emerging as a credible means for electricity generation from non-carbon sources. With its expansive coastlines, France, has very high marine energy production potential, and thus has the opportunity to race ahead in this sector.
20 years of research by Jean-Baptiste Drevet on the coupling between fluids and undulating membranes has allowed him to give life to EEL Energy. The compant develops an undulating membrane inspired by bio-mimicry - the motion made by fish swimming – to generate electricity from marine or river currents..
This solution is simple and robust, with high performance thanks to an extended collecting surface. The ergonomics extend implantation potential, due to slower and shallow water flow.
The EEL® technology is holds 5 patents. Several prototypes have already been successfully tested in a North Sean flume tank, in partnership with IFREMER. The 1:6 scale prototype is being tested with already very promising results.
EEL Energy ensures access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all. EEL Energy ensures access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all. 100% ecological with no aggressive impacts on fauna and marine life, no toxic material, this disruptive technology based on undulations has been developed to become the energy of the future and can be adapted to any current.
EEL ENERGY has been involved in the 3DEXPERIENCE Lab program since 2017. They have adopted the 3DEXPERIENCE platform on the Cloud for Design, Systems and Simulation solutions.
Modeling and simulation are essential needs for the company, especially during the ongoing development phase of their prototypes. Defining the design and the most relevant choices of materials, collaborating with suppliers of components, and anticipating the performance of its machines is an added value from Dassault Systèmes solutions.
Among the areas the 3DEXPERIENCE platform helps EEL Energy :
• Evaluation and implementation of composite materials
• Reliability of multi-material assemblies (composite, spring steel, elastomer)Mechanical resistance of the structure in great deformation
EEL ENERGY assembles complementary talents, associated by conviction in the emergence of biomimicry.

The construction industry needs a digital revolution. Even though it is the world´s biggest employer, the industry has been posting profitability losses for over three decades.
In 2017, the market of professional drones is projected to increase to 3,7 billion of euros (Gartner source). Services associated to drones grow up and the autonomy of the machines is optimized. From design offices to operating departments, what are the appropriate devices for collecting data?
Urbanisation, Digital Transformation, Climate Change are the key challenges now. On Transportation and Mobility, the current paradigm is : one size fits for all. At XYT, we do not sell cars, we deliver tailored mobility solutions for our clients’ business operations, to maximize value creation in a better future.
The satellite market has been disrupted by the miniaturization of the technology. Lots of small satellites have been created and they aim to provide data for Earth observation, surveillance, telecommunications, smart cities, connectivity, meteorology, emergency responses, ...
According to the World Health Organization, 75 million of people need a wheelchairs in the world. But the common wheelchair is an obsolete technology. Many situations, both professional and personal, call for an adapted system:
While farming today requires a large investment in machinery, it generates relatively low revenue –; and accommodating ecology demands asks farmers to invest more time and take more risk. Using robotics could help farmers with low value-added, time-consuming work, reducing costs and helping mitigate risk.
