We support the transition to a carbon-neutral world by creating record-breaking efficient solutions for energy conversion machinery.
The INERCOM platform's research is at the core of the energy system transition from the present fossil-fuel system towards the future carbon-neutral world. In the conversion cycle from renewable electricity to power products (power-to-X) and from power products to electric and heat power (X-to-power), the main challenge is to increase the efficiency across the processes of energy conversion and storage.
The platform focuses on enabling the design and manufacture of integrated energy conversion machinery having extremely high specific power, high efficiency and low raw material usage. By bringing together expertise in mathematical modelling, material research, electromechanical modelling and design, turbomachinery research and machine dynamics, we help the European energy conversion machinery industry to develop financially viable, emission-free applications for e.g. transportation.
We act as an enabler and with our support, both established and new companies can speed up their uptake of the emerging hydrogen economy.
