As an an-institute of the University of Rostock, IWEN stands for research, development and technology transfer in the field of renewable energies. With its portfolio, the young research institute, which was founded in 2019, is consistently driving the energy transition forward. The aim of the work is the expansion of renewable energies and their in-depth decentralised use.
The research and development activities focus on the implementation of energy storage systems for energy systems based on hydrogen as well as on wind energy technology and the interaction in energy management supply concepts. Sector coupling for holistic decentralized systems is another focus of the work. As a coordinating body for research, development and innovation, the IWEN is a competent partner for local companies, municipalities and research institutions.
