The FfE is an independent research institute that focuses on energy technology and energy management issues on a scientific basis. It draws up its research results across all energy carriers and represents them free of political directions - on the basis of scientific methods and analyses.
Since 1949, the FfE has been dedicated to "promoting practical energy knowledge"in order to achieve the most efficient use of energy. A holistic approach takes account of market, regulatory, social and ecological factors in equal measure.
Our increasingly integrated, technology-based energy system modeling brings together the interplay of these aspects. This enables stakeholders in society, business and politics to act in a reasonable and efficient manner in order to further advance our vision of energy rationality for the entire energy system.
