The research university in the Helmholtz Association.
Energy research at KIT combines basic and applied research on all relevant forms of energy for industry, households, services, and mobility. This diversity is also reflected in the field of renewable energies: solar and wind energy, bioenergy, and geothermal energy, their embedding in the energy system of the future, their linking with storage facilities, grids, and mobility solutions are holistically researched at KIT. In this context, competences in technology and natural sciences, but also in economics, humanities, social sciences, and law are combined and the social side of innovative energy technologies is deliberately included.
KIT – The Research University in the Helmholtz Association – combines its three core tasks of research, teaching, and innovation into one mission. With about 9,300 employees and 25,000 students, KIT is one of Europe’s major research and teaching institutions in the natural sciences and engineering.
