Service provider in all questions concerning energy
The EnergyAgency.NRW works on behalf of the state government of North Rhine-Westphalia as an operative platform with broad expertise in the field of energy: from energy research, technical development, demonstration, market launch and energy consultancy to continuous vocational training. Many of its activities focus on energy efficiency and climate protection. In times of high energy prices it is more important than ever to forge ahead with the development of innovative energy technologies in NRW and to highlight from an impartial point of view how companies, local authorities and private individuals can handle energy more economically or make appropriate use of renewables.
The EnergyAgency.NRW is also the home for the cluster EnergyResearch.NRW (CEF.NRW) – on behalf of the NRW Science Ministry. CEF.NRW acts as the contact body for all matters relating to energy research in NRW. It works to ensure that new technological and socio-economic knowledge is applied in practice more speedily than hitherto. For this purpose the cluster initiates research and development projects as part of a collaborative effort between research institutions and industry. CEF.NRW highlights the complex energy supply system as a whole in its interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary activities. The cluster's work focuses on centralised energy generation, decentralised energy generation, conversion technologies, energy grids and storage systems, and transformation research.
