  The Extra Low ENergy Antiproton ring (ELENA) project started in June 2011 and is aimed at substantially increasing the number of antiprotons delivered to the Antiproton Decelerator (AD) physics community. ELENA will be a small machine that receives antiprotons from AD at 5.3 MeV kinetic energy and decelerates them further down to 100 keV. It will be equipped with an electron cooler to avoid beam losses during deceleration and to reduce beam phase space at extraction. Design work is progressing with emphasis on machine parameters and design as well as infrastructure, ring, transfer lines and vital subsystem design.
