Energy research Centre of the Netherlands (ECN) is the largest energy research institute in the Netherlands. ECN develops new technology and conducts pioneering research in various ways into innovative solutions to facilitate the transition to sustainable energy management. With around 500 members of staff, we are active in projects both at domestically and abroad, in joint efforts with the industry, government authorities and research institutes. We do this from our locations in Petten, Amsterdam, Eindhoven, Brussels and China. ECN’s research has a major influence on day-to-day life. In this, we perform an important role for the society of today and the future.
ECN has identified seven core activities for the near term. In these fields, we see opportunities that we aim to materialise together with trade and industry, government authorities and knowledge institutes.
