2008: An idea is born

This year was a turning point in terms of performances for the start-up development: hiring, strategic collaborations and new energy efficiency service. Several achievements such as the Réseau Entreprendre labeling and the ADEME i-Nov contest victory reveal Ananké’s willingness to be a sustainably part of the energy transition.

2015: Welcome to Energine

On October 14th, after seven years of hard work, the Ministries of Economy, Labour and the SYNTEC Federation awarded the National Engineering Award. The team, in partnership with the FEMTO-ST Institute, were rewarded for their innovative spirits and determination for the E.H.V.E creation. This new technology perfectly embeds the energy mix by directly influencing energy production and consumption.

2017: Ananké is here

On September 22nd, Brice Bryon, Thibaut Cartigny, Pierre Ranc and Mathieu Doubs founded Ananké. The main objective is to give industrialists the opportunity to include the energy transition in their strategies while boosting the innovation/competitiveness combination.. The Externally Heated Valve Engine (E.H.V.E) developed by Ananké is used for cogeneration. This technology makes it possible to convert wasted heat – known as “fatal heat” – into a useful source of energy.

2019: The turning point

This year was a turning point in terms of performances for the start-up development: hiring, strategic collaborations and new setting up of ETNA a fume diagnostic service. Several achievements such as the Réseau Entreprendre labeling and the ADEME i-Nov contest victory reveal Ananké’s willingness to be a sustainably part of the energy transition.
