Key Technologies for Energy and Environment

The central key technologies that Forschungszentrum Jülich develops, uses for its own research areas, and makes available to other scientific institutions include simulation science, research with neutrons, electron microscopy, and hadron research.


Simulation in Environmental Research

Physical and chemical processes in the atmosphere are very complex. Developing reliable climate models and forecasting the impacts of climate change are based on an understanding of these processes. In working on these tasks, climate researchers use supercomputers to simulate various scenarios incorporating experimental data.

New Materials for Energy Storage

Jülich scientists investigate elements and material components on an atomic level in order to optimize existing energy storage technologies and lay the foundation for new ones. Basic research at Jülich makes use of various methods and instruments to penetrate into the innermost structures of matter and to explore the mechanisms at work there.
