Our research focuses on current, action-intensive challenges


Finding new energy-efficient solutions requires extensive research. Our goal is a deep system-level understanding of the transition to a carbon-neutral energy system and its economic, environmental, technical and competitiveness factors.

Our research covers the technologies and systems required for the production, transmission, distribution and use of energy, from equipment manufacturing and fuels to energy end-use. Our strengths are our understanding of the system level of energy systems, the digital design and production of machines and equipment, and demanding welded metal structures.
