RICE lights up the future by providing technical solutions to meet the needs of energy players.

We conduct expert assessment and research activities to remove technological bottlenecks and accelerate the energy transition.

Our ambition:

To support the energy transition and make gas infrastructures carbon-neutral, connected and efficient. 

  • meet the challenges of tomorrow’s multi-energy world
  • innovate, imagine, test and experiment with bold and safe new solutions for our current and future customers

RICE is a center for applied rather than basic research; we do not simply bring ideas and file patents; we also follow the process until the solution is reached, ready for industrial rollout.

While our actions are strongly impacted by the challenges of the energy transition, we remain fully focused on the “historical” issues facing infrastructure operators – transmission, distribution, storage and terminals.

Our 5 programs within 3 R&D&I areas

In order to ensure its strategic autonomy and in particular to play a leading role in the development of new activities, RICE has developed programs that focus its research, development and innovation activity on the medium / long-term and set its course in three main focus areas: Industrial Safety, Energy Transition and Operational Excellence.

This vision, set out in road maps, receives inputs from constant technology watch in all areas of expertise related to the gas sector, enabling RICE to anticipate the needs of the various players and advise them on changes in the state of the art or regulations.
