About us

INERGIO is a spin-off from EPFL and HEIG-VD, developing and commercializing innovative energy systems based on miniaturized fuel cell technology.

An independent solution that delivers uninterrupted power using commercial fuels. A light weight and ecological power source that offers an extremely high autonomy. 

Our vision is to deliver power whenever and wherever needed. 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.
