Guiding Principles of Fraunhofer Energy Alliance


We want Germany and Europe to be the innovation leaders in the transition to a sustainable energy system. With our research and development work, we are shaping the transformation to an economic, environmentally friendly, secure and socially accepted energy supply for electricity, heat and mobility.


As a leading international organization for applied energy research, we develop and demonstrate pioneering key technologies for the German and European industry. Our work covers the entire value-added process – from new ideas and concepts through the development of new materials, processes and systems to quality assurance and support in market implementation. Thus, we support our customers from economy as well as public clients in the successful transformation of the energy system.

The decentralized structure of the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft enables us to quickly take up new topics and developments and to develop solutions in close cooperation with our customers. For the major challenges of energy research, we bundle the best competencies of Fraunhofer and thus, forge agile, highly focused research consortia.
