IDENER is a private research SME company composed of a team of researchers with a sound scientific background in disciplines comprising the branch of systems engineering, such as electronics and computer, systems integration and control, and process engineering.
The company, located in Seville (Spain), was founded in 2010 by a group of PhD holding engineers. From that time forward, IDENER has been positioned as a valued partner of top European Research centres, Universities and technology firms. IDENER investigates the multidisciplinary field of Computational Science and its application to the optimisation of systems and processes in key areas: Industrial Technologies; ICTs; Biotechnology; Secure, Clean and Efficient Energy; and Resource and Raw Materials Efficiency. This approach results in a high added value which sharpens the competitive edge of complex systems by providing improvements in performance and cost-effectiveness. To that end, IDENER integrates concepts from four interrelated and complementary areas of knowledge: Mathematical Modeling and Simulation, Multidisciplinary Design Optimization, Control Engineering, and Software Engineering. This way, IDENER aims to contribute to the progress of AI setups and to update systems and processes in key areas in response to these incremental developments.


WP1, WP3 (leader of T3.1), WP5, WP6, WP7, WP8


In the TRINEFLEX project, IDENER, as the leader of Task 3.1, is in charge of the development of multiagent platform operation. This platform integrates the flexibility optimisation decision support system (FODSS) that receives the optimisation calculations to control processes and shows them to the operator. This will allow them to monitor processes with visual tools like charts and tables. Moreover, IDENER must validate and demonstrate the system in operational environments, focusing on interconnections and interoperability (WP5). Additionally, IDENER is involved in the process engineering solutions and optimisation of demonstration cases DC#2-Aluminium and DC#3-Water. Lastly, IDENER contributes to other tasks of WP1, WP6, WP7 and WP8.

Team involved

Carlos Leyva

Team leader

He is in charge of the IT and Industry 4.0 Applications department, where he leads software implementation in related projects. His works are indeed focused on systems integration and processes scale-up as well as on the implementation and deployment of laboratory-developed solutions in industrial environments.

Luis Acevedo

He also completed an MSc at the same University. He obtained a second MSc in the University of Zaragoza, Spain. He also completed a Ph.D. at the same University and got a prize for the best academic record. Since he finished his studies, he has been working on the research field. For eight years, he collaborated and worked at CIRCE (Centre of Research for Energy Resources and Consumption), in the Natural Resources Department. Nowadays, his work is focused on mathematical simulation on energy efficiency and environmental aspects by applying energy and exergy balances, as well as Thermoeconomic analyses to optimise different industrial processes (focused on solar and desalination systems). Moreover, he was in charge of a trigeneration with hybrid renewable energies for desalination (heat, water and electricity production) during CIRCE and Zaragoza University cooperation (TRHIBERDE Spanish national project, Ministry of Science and Innovation). Since June 2019, Luis Acevedo is part of the IT & Digital Apps department, at IDENER, and he collaborates in the performance of numerical models, heat transfer process, phase change materials, microwave systems and machine learning models.

Alejandro Gómez

Software expert

He joined IDENER in 2022, as part of the IT and Digital Apps department as an R&D Engineer and his work is focused on working together with the rest of the engineering team in the definition, development and testing of mathematical modelling and machine learning applications.

Álvaro Ojeda

Robotic engineer

Recently, he completed an MSc in Artificial Intelligence at International University of Valencia. He joined IDENER in 2019, and he is part of the IT and Industry 4.0 Applications department as an R&D Engineer. His works are focused on data processing and programming systems based on machine learning. Thanks to his position, he has developed a keen interest in those fields, especially to improve the efficiency of industrial processes and contribute to the fight against climate change.
