ZSW is one of the leading European research institutes for renewable energy sources and energy storage technologies. This is an overview of the research topics that ZSW considers essential on the path to a sustainable energy system. They cover the entire value chain from researching materials and developing prototypes and production processes up to delivering viable systems, quality tests, and market analyses. Our institute also prepares proposals and analyses for government and businesses to help ramp up and roll out technologies that much faster.
Our work is currently focusing on the following large research topics:
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.
