Institute of Energy and Climate Research - Techno-economic Systems Analysis

Director:

Univ.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. Detlef Stolten

Short name:

IEK-3

Info:

The transition to a sustainable energy system requires the deployment of a range of efficient technologies for the conversion, storage and distribution of renewably-generated power and heat. The IEK-3 is at the forefront of this endeavor. In collaboration with national and international partners from research and industry, we develop solutions for mobile and stationary applications and conduct groundbreaking research into fuel cells and the use of hydrogen as an energy carrier, including its production, distribution and storage. Additionally, we formulate concepts and models for the energy system of the future.

Profile Area ECPE

The provision of sustainable energy and materials is clearly one of the major global challenges which were identified in the future strategy of RWTH Aachen University. The profile area Energy, Chemical & Process Engineering (ECPE) addresses the two most important pathways to achieve this goal: Improvements in energy and material efficiency and the transition to renewable sources.

More information on the profile area's key topics can be found here.

RWTH Aachen Profile Areas

RWTH Aachen University is convinced that in order to solve today's complex and multi-faceted problems, universities have to develop appropriate, integrated approaches. The Profile Areas are designed to address interdisciplinary topics and thus to enhance the University’s capability to engage in significant research activities and take on large-scale projects.
