Fraunhofer Groups / Alliances

Fraunhofer Energy Alliance

In the Fraunhofer Energy Alliance eleven Fraunhofer Institutes join their expertise in energy technologies and energy research, with the aim to give research and development from one hand to industry and energy economy.

The alliance co-operates with the Fraunhofer networks Microenergy Technology, Wind Energy, Direct-Ethanol-Fuelcell and Intelligent Energy Nets.

The Alliance’s work is chiefly focused on: Renewable energy sources (solar energy, biomass, wind power); energy-efficient technologies (fuel cells, combined heat and power (CHP) systems and gas delivery, building-service technologies, power electronics); buildings and components (low-energy-houses, building energy technology); intelligent energy nets (p.e. systemtechnological net integration of distributed generators; electrical energy storage and micro-energy systems (lithium battery technology, fuel-cell systems).

Business Areas

  • Renewable energy sources
  • Energy-efficiency technologies
  • Buildings and components
  • Intelligent energy nets
  • Energy storage and micro-energy systems
