DLR energy research provides vital contributions to the decarbonised energy system of the future and to the transition phase. The focus is on sustainable energy supplies as a key element to shaping the energy system transformation and achieving Germany's and global climate goals. The portfolio includes renewable energy sources, energy conversion technologies and energy storage as well as energy system analysis.
The Institute of Low-Carbon Industrial Processes is augmenting DLR’s research portfolio by the new focal area CO2-reduction for industrial processes. Thus, broadening the scope of topics and expertise relevant for the energy transition by addressing the specific requirements and research needs to decarbonise huge energy-intensive industrial sectors (power plants, steelmaking, cement industry, petrochemical industries, chemical industries, and primary aluminium production). At the same time, the research topics of the institute complement the activities for sustainable power generation and storage.
Thus, the Institute of Low-Carbon Industrial Processes strengthens DLR’s competences in the socially and economically highly relevant field of energy research and making a significant contribution to the major challenge to significantly reduce CO2 and pollutant emissions from industrial processes and power plants in the decade to come.
Topics in research and development are:
