The in­ter­link­ing of the elec­tric­i­ty, heat and mo­bil­i­ty sec­tors is a key top­ic of re­search for the In­sti­tute of Net­worked En­er­gy Sys­tems. NESTEC (Em­u­la­tion Cen­tre for Net­worked En­er­gy Sys­tems) was of­fi­cial­ly in­au­gu­rat­ed here in Novem­ber 2019.

Sci­en­tists at the In­sti­tute of Net­worked En­er­gy Sys­tems are con­duct­ing re­search in­to how to gen­er­ate elec­tric­i­ty and heat with a high lev­el of ef­fi­cien­cy us­ing re­al load pro­files in time-lapse tests on spe­cial test stands.

The German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) has ideal research conditions at its site in Oldenburg. Oldenburg is considered to be the cradle of research into renewable forms of energy in Germany. Located just a short distance away from the science campus of Carl von Ossietzky University, the DLR Institute of Networked Energy Systems is in prime position to foster close collaboration with researchers from various university faculties, other energy research institutes in the city and local companies. Oldenburg-based energy researchers have come together to form the ENERiO (Energy Research in Oldenburg) association.

In addition, the Institute of Networked Energy Systems actively works with partners from Lower Saxony, having joined forces across universities to form the Lower Saxony Energy Research Centre (Energieforschungszentrum Niedersachsen; EFZN), alongside many other institutions from Germany and further afield. As part of DLR, the institute also benefits from an array of collaborations within the key DLR themes of energy, transport, digitalisation, space, aeronautics and security.
