CIC energiGUNE (CICe) is a non-profit energy research centre based in the Basque Country (Spain), funded in 2011. CIC energiGUNE is divided into two main research areas, Electrochemical Energy Storage (EES) and Thermal Energy Storage (TES). The EES area focuses in materials and novel devices for electrochemical energy storage including batteries and supercaps. This is achieved by combining interdisciplinary teams working towards a) excellent and high impact research in materials and electrochemical devices for storage applications; b) becoming a reference centre for collaborative technology transfer to industry and c) high level training of young researchers and creation of new business sectors. The centre has the backing of public institutions and administrations, and of companies directly related to the energy sector.
