We have only just started implementing the new energy policy. Energy-related topics will continue to affect manufacturing for a long time to come. To keep ahead of the fierce competition from the Far East in all areas of manufacturing, Germany must extend its technological lead. With its ideal combination of experience, manufacturing expertise and methodological skills, Fraunhofer IPA is helping to shape the future of industry in Europe by making it more energy-efficient and attractive.
In the future, sustainable production methods gentle on resources will dictate industrial processes in Europe. This also includes responsible energy management as far as energy provision and energy consumption are concerned. Fraunhofer IPA develops manufacturing and automation solutions for energy storage systems, as well as concepts using energy efficiently and flexibly in factories. It also offers engineering services related to wind energy.
