The world is looking for more sustainable ways to generate, store and convert energy. Imec is working on innovative solutions.
Imec's set of energy technologies stems from our innovations in material and design. We develop them within the structural partnerships of EnergyVille and Solliance.
EnergyVille is a collaboration between the Flemish research partners KU Leuven, VITO, imec and UHasselt in the field of sustainable energy and intelligent energy systems. Our researchers provide expertise to industry and public authorities on energy-efficient buildings and intelligent networks for a sustainable urban environment. This includes, for example, smart grids and advanced district heating and cooling.
Combining forces in research into the next generation, thin-film solar cells. Solliance was founded with that goal in 2010. The research organization is a joint venture of ECN, TNO, Holst Centre and imec. Together with the academic partners TU Eindhoven, University of Hasselt, TU Delft and Forschungszentrum Jülich, the research institutes plays a significant role in global research into the solar technology of the future.
