The Forschungscampus Flexible Electrical Networks FEN is a consortium of institutes of the RWTH Aachen University and of industrial partners from different faculties and industrial sectors. With its four institutes the E.ON Energy Research Center is a main research partner in the Forschungscampus FEN. The joint research of the scientific and industrial partners under one roof promotes application-oriented research.

The aim of the Forschungscampus FEN is to investigate and to develop innovative technologies for future electrical grids with a high proportion of fluctuating and decentralized renewable energy sources.

The university and industrial partners in the Forschungscampus FEN conduct joint research on the technological foundations of the future power grids. The experts investigate how direct current technology (DC) can be applied to our future energy supply system. Non-technological topics such as social acceptance, urbanistic and health aspects are also investigated in this context. www.forschungscampus-FEN.de
