Who we are!

Founded in August 2020, INERGIO Technologies SA is based in Lausanne, Switzerland. Concerned by Climate Change, we build clean, lightweight and efficient power generators based on Fuel Cell technology.
The technology is based on more than 15 years of research to introduce a fuel flexible fuel cells system that could benefit from available fuels today, and could switch to future energy carriers such as green hydrogen and ammonia without any technical modifications. 

We are a spin-off from EPFL and HEIG-VD.


About us


Our vision is to accelerate the green energy transition.  
Our fuel flexible fuel cell systems enables a step by step transition towards green energy by using commercial fuel today and switch to green hydrogen once it will be widely and commercially available. 


Our mission is to deliver clean electricity wherever and whenever is needed. 
Yes, by that we mean in the middle of winter when the grid is not reliably accessible!


Innovation –  Encouraging a culture of creativity and a willingness to explore new ideas and solutions.

Collaboration – Promoting teamwork, and open communication, to achieve common objectives.

Sustainability – Demonstrating a commitment to environmental and social responsibilities.

Fun and Enjoyment –Creating a positive and enjoyable work environment that fosters creativity, and promotes work-life-balance.
