DLR Energy Research: Taking energy further - The key role of sector coupling
DLR is one of the world's leading research institutions in the area of sector coupling. Its research in the fields of energy and transport provide ideal and unique opportunities to connect these two areas. The research is carried out with a comprehensive systematic approach in close collaboration with industry. Combined heat and power generation with micro gas turbines, production processes for solar fuels, as well as fuel cell powered flight are examples of the many different ways in which DLR researchers are contributing to efficiently connect all energy sectors.
