— Whether technological, commercial or financial, Artelys has built various partnerships over the years in order to offer its customers the best service on the best products, by developing synergies and increasing its business expertise through domestic, European and international successful projects.


— In order to provide to its customers state-of-art solutions and to solve highly complex problems, Artelys is involved in research and development. Through its innovative strategy Artelys aims to develop more performing, efficient and robust optimization and decision support tools.



Funded by the National Research Council of Canada (PARI-CRNC) since 2018, the MOVE project aims to push the development of national (provincial /by state) electrical system optimization tools to adapt to the context of North America. Based on a fine modeling of the market structures and the networks’ operations, MOVE enables reliable technical-economic analysis of future energy systems (electricity price forecasts at each node, impact renewable energy integration, storage, new uses of consumption, etc.).


Insulae enables the deployment of innovative and cost-effective solutions for the decarbonisation of European islands. A set of interventions relating to seven intelligent use cases is presented and tested in three pilots islands. The validation of the result defines then the Investment Planning Tool (IPT) tested on the other four “follower” islands. The IPT is developed with Artelys Crystal technology and deployed in each of the seven island  : Unije (Croatia), Bornholm (Danmark), Madère (Portugal), Minorque (Spain), Norderney (Germany), Bonaire (Netherlands Antilles), Psara (Greece).


Coordinated by Artelys and in partnership with GEG, INRIA and L2EP, NEXT consists of developing a simulation and optimization tool for the design of flexible distribution power grids (production flexibilities , consumption, storage, multi-energy flexibilities, fine-tuning of the network …).

The goal of this H2020 projet is to develop an SIG tool to accompany local collectivities in the construction of alternative low carbone scenarios economically viable for the installation of heat networks. Artelys is thus in charge to develop an integrated plateform and optimal algorithm for the establishment or the sizing of heating and cooling networks.

Part of the ERA-Net Smart Grids Plus program, Restable is a project that demonstrate the feasibility of reserve supply of renewable plants and proove their great participation in the energy and systems services markets. In order to achieve this objective, a Virtual Power Plant managing the aggregation of several geographically distant production parks has been set up to respond to the transmission system operator’s calls. In this context, Artelys has developed an optimization software for placing offers on the markets for renewable producers.


Funded by the ADEME, POST is a project in partnership with former INRIA’s TAO team. Developed between 2013 and 2017, POST provided energy stakeholders tools for optimizing investments in electricity system interconnection projects, according to each region and future changes in energy demand. These powerful numerical tools have been integrated into the software Artelys Crystal Super Grid.

— “Artelys has supported us throught the development of our energy master plan which defines the metropolitan energy strategy for 2030. The software Artelys Crystal City allowed us to evaluate the impact of our energy actions and guide our choices in the construction of the best scenario.”


Energy planning manager, Métropole du Grand Lyon

— “Thanks to Artelys Crystal Resource Optimizer, Nice airport found the tool he always needed to develop its planning studies. The attentive and dynamic teams of Artelys allowed to carry out this project.”

Ana Maria DE ABREU

Resource planning manager, Aéroports de la Côte d'Azur

— “Artelys Knitro and AMPL performance enables the automation of radiation therapy cancer treatment, resulting in faster treatment delivery and more accurate tumor irradiation and healthy tissue sparing. Thanks to the resolution of complex large scale optimization models more than 800 patients were treated since the beginning of the project.”

Masoud Zarepisheh, PhD

Assistant professor, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC)

— “Artelys has been selected by ENTSO-E, the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity, to undertake a study on the identification and assessment of options to implement the linking of bids between the day-ahead market coupling and reserve procurement processes. The Artelys team has delivered an in-depth analysis of the impacts of various bid linking options, relying on a deep understanding of relevant market designs, their expertise in optimization, and their track-record in the development of market clearing platforms.”
