What are the technologies that can help increase the use of renewable energies at home, in the car, and in industry?

Our major research projects focus on technologies that utilize renewable sources of energy and new systems that store the energy obtained in this way. This helps conserve fossil energy reserves and provides greater independence from energy imports from politically unstable regions.

To bolster our expertise and to accelerate the development process, we are entering into development partnerships with other companies, research institutions, and, not least, universities, with particular emphasis on organic photovoltaics, utilization of marine energy, and lithium-ion batteries. We are also involved in the high-tech strategy for climate protection, which was initiated by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) in 2007.
