About us


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.


Our vision is to accelerate the green energy transition following a systematic and step-by-step approach. Our fuel flexible fuel cell technology generates reliable electricity using any kind of fuel from commercially available natural gas and LPG to Green Hydrogen.


Our mission is to help our clients to build a better product and provide a better service by securing 24/7 operation at low maintenance cost using green power generator.



The technology behind INERGIO is a product of more than 10 years of research at Swiss higher education institutions. Different aspects and technological challenges of micro-SOFCs have been studied and valuable know-how developed through several PhD thesis. INERGIO spun-off from EPFL and HEIG-VD
