In the future energy supply will be characterized by a greater degree of decentralization, efficiency and use of renewable energies. The step-by-step realization of this systems approach requires the resolution of a diverse range of challenges in terms of technology and energy economy. The IdE has therefore set itself the task of rising to these challenges and aims to develop innovative solutions through the joint examination of the energy requirement for power and heat, including the supply of electricity for electric vehicles.
Among others, the fields of activity include applied research and development projects, contract research for commercial enterprises, and technology transfer activities.
IdE is a public private partnership between the University of Kassel and regional industrial enterprises.
