The threat of global warming is becoming more tangible every year. For imec, this is a driving factor to speed up our research into smart energy solutions. We want to increase the performance of solar panels, create stronger batteries, design smarter grids that optimally combine different energy resources, find better ways to use wind energy, etc.
And because a global struggle against global warming begins at home, imec is a founding member of Leuven 2030, a group of citizens, governments, companies and organizations who aim to make our home city climate neutral in the near future. Moreover, our CEO signed the ‘Sign for my Future’ petition that urges the Belgian government to take concrete actions against climate change.
