Descripción de la compañía

“The mission or overall objective of the Center for Research in Technology, Energy and Sustainability (CITES) of the University of Huelva (Spain), is the promotion of knowledge and research excellence in science and technology, as well as information, training, innovation and transfer of results to companies and society in general. All this, with a strong intensification in the lines of research that converge in the Center, closely linked to the field of energy, mainly renewable hybridized with hydrogen technologies. The Center has a strong vocation in the search for sustainability in its broadest sense (environmental and social without renouncing economic development).
CITES has complete facilities at the “La Rábida” Campus of the University of Huelva. Specifically, in the area of energy: wind and photovoltaic fields, as well as renewable hydrogen production (alkaline and PEM technologies), storage (pressurized gas and metal hydrides) and consumption for direct electricity generation (fuel cells) or thermal utilization (turbines and engines). Strengths of CITES:
 Experience in H2 technologies for more than 20 years.
 Prototyping capabilities.
 Tens of R&D&I projects carried out, including European, national, regional and technology transfer to companies.
 Tens of doctoral theses supervised with numerous awards.
 Hundreds of publications in journals, books and conferences.
 Tens of patents, most of them PCT.
