Energy Research Network

Energy Research Network – Flexible Energy Conversion


As a central building block for the energy transition, it is intended that the electricity provision in Germany shall become more climate-compatible. To achieve this the German Federal Government is primarily relying on renewable energies. In conjunction with these, flexible power plant technology will make an important contribution to ensuring a secure power supply. To achieve this, research and development work is necessary that should also take into account innovative CO2 technologies for cross-sector applications. On 24th February 2017, the Flexible Energy Conversion research network was founded on the initiative of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. The previous Cooretec research initiative was concluded on 7th November 2016 and will be integrated into the new network.

Focus on the energy transition


Germany’s energy transition is a priority project for the German Federal Government that encompasses a variety of policy measures. Several ministries are responsible for its implementation. Exchanging ideas between different actors in different networks and platforms is just as indispensable as intensive monitoring. Last but not least, the involvement of research is an important prerequisite for the success of this long-term project.
