What kind of future world do we want to live in? How can we get climate change under control?

At ZSW, scientists and engineers, visionaries and groundbreakers are working to shape a "next". They develop innovative solutions for private enterprises, policymakers and society. We want to make sure that the transformation to climate neutrality will be a success for everyone. For more than 30 years, we have been doing research and development for a sustainable energy system.
