Energy issues are high on the agenda at the moment. Energy research is not a passing interest, though. It has been part of the German Aerospace Center’s (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) research portfolio for the past three decades. DLR has outstanding and wide-ranging expertise in this field. Energy-saving technologies, options for wide application of renewable energies, and contributions to climate protection are all in high demand. DLR Nachrichten’s ‘Special Edition: Energy Research’ covers these topics.

DLR provides scientists with opportunities for conducting basic research, for setting up test stands and test installations, for exploring systematic approaches, and for working in interdisciplinary teams. It thus creates a research environment that has proven to be particularly fruitful for innovative activities. By fostering collaboration between leading specialists from the different subfields of energy research, working at the DLR institutes, at colleges of higher education or in private business, DLR sets the conditions for top-notch scientific and technological performance. This had led to successful applications of new technology, and even to the formation of a DLR spin-off company.

In DLR Nachrichten's 'Special Edition: Energy Research' you can read more about these topics, about the very diverse research and development activities conducted at DLR and about its latest achievements in this field. Inside, you will find articles about power plant technology, solar research and hydrogen technology, enabling you to learn more about energy distribution, alternative sources of energy, new energy stores, innovative fuel cells and hidden reserves.
