The E.ON Energy Research Center
A strong partnership
Constant innovation is important to us. That’s why we work in partnership with universities and research facilities across the world. One of our closest relationships is with the E.ON Energy Research Center (ERC) at the RWTH Technical University in Aachen. In 2016, we renewed our partnership for another five years. Our joint goal is to find the possibilities and opportunities presented by future energy systems and develop a new range of useful products and solutions for customers.
The ERC brings together decisive elements from the sustainable energy world (generation, transformation, distribution and storage of efficient and climate-friendly energy sources) alongside behavior-oriented social and economic issues. The interdisciplinary concept makes the ERC a pioneer amongst German and European universities. Dr. Rik De Doncker has run the research center since its launch in 2006.
