As a participating and cooperating research institute of the H2UB lab network, we would like to introduce you to:


Institute of Energy Systems, Energy Efficiency and Energy Economics

(Technical University of Dortmund, Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology)




Dortmund – Nordrhein-Westfalen

Main topics

  • Innovative concepts and planning approaches for transport and distribution networks
  • System integration of renewable energies
  • Electromobility and power electronic components
  • Energy-efficient systems and supply concepts
  • Design of future electricity markets
  • Protection and control technology for safe and reliable system management

Labs & Tools

Smart Grid Technology Lab

The research laboratory focuses on the development of future low-voltage networks and electromobility. The laboratory has a test network equipped with the latest technology required for low voltage networks such as: B. on-load tap-changer transformers, energy storage systems, a photovoltaic system simulator, charging stations for electric vehicles and experimental prototype devices. The laboratory is highly configurable, which guarantees the possibility of carrying out a large number of different tests and experiments.

MILES – Model of International Energy Systems

European energy system simulation to investigate the benefits of large-scale technologies such as renewable energy, e-mobility, sector coupling, P-2-G, P-2-X, etc. in the European electricity network, taking into account the infrastructure (electricity and gas networks)


Agent-based distribution network simulation that depicts the interplay between decentralized systems in the distribution network, including RE, E-Mob, heat, gas, etc.
