Supporting the Transition to Sustainable Energy Systems
Sustainable Energy (SE) is FBK's centre for energy research, innovation and outreach. Our mission is to support the development and the adoption of low-carbon and zero-emission solutions for the production, distribution and storage of energy that minimize environmental impact and contribute to the deep decarbonization of our society.
To advance this mission, SE conducts R&D and innovation projects in collaboration with industry, academia and public institutions in the energy sector. Our vision is grounded in the global and European decarbonization targets, which demand for increased energy efficiency and wide penetration of renewables enabled by sector coupling, use of new energy vectors and innovative storage solutions as enablers of the clean energy transition.
SE aims to support the development of low-carbon and zero-emission solutions for the production, distribution and storage of energy that minimize environmental impact and enhance climate resilience.
To this end, SE offers its know-how, expertise, and facilities in the energy field to help developing new methods, models and technology that can improve the efficiency and flexibility of energy systems in a sustainable and cost-effective way.
research on advanced materials and surface engineering for low carbon energy solutions;
battery storage technologies (redox flow & next generation battery chemistries);
