Institute of Energy and Climate Research (IEK)

The Institute of Energy and Climate Research investigates modern energy conversion technologies within the framework of climate and environmental protection. The topics it covers in the energy sector range from photovoltaics and fuel cells, through nuclear fusion and nuclear safety research, right up to innovative coal and gas power plants as well as an overarching systems analysis.

In the climate sector, attention is focused on the atmosphere. The chemistry and dynamics of anthropogenic and natural trace gases such as water vapour, hydroxyls and carbon dioxide are monitored in the atmosphere by means of measuring instruments on the ground, in the air and in space.

A particular strength of the Institute of Energy and Climate Research is its interdisciplinary approach for solivng interdisciplinary issues, which is facilitated by the application of complementary scientific methods and the utilization of a joint infrastructure. The Institute of Energy and Climate Research intends to assess research findings in the "energy and climate" context and thus provide advice for our society, politics and industry.
