The institute is supported by the Reiner Lemoine Foundation. Reiner Lemoine was a pioneer in the field of renewable energy. While others were thinking and talking about alternative forms of energy, Reiner Lemoine took the lead and founded, amongst others, the solar companies SOLON and Q-Cells.
In addition to our independent scientific work, we also support the transformation of energy systems through individual project commissions and studies for businesses, policy makers, local actors, and civil groups.
Wherever possible, we follow the principles of open science and try to make the majority of our scientific work accessible. This forms the technical and legal basis for scientific reproducibility and genuine participation in the energy system transformation.
