The Fraunhofer Institute for Wind Energy Systems IWES secures investments in technological developments through validation, shortens innovation cycles, accelerates certification procedures, and increases planning accuracy by means of innovative measurement methods in the wind energy and hydrogen technology sectors.

The Fraunhofer Workgroup Sustainable Maritime Mobility is a close collaboration under joint management between the University of Applied Sciences Emden/Leer and Fraunhofer IWES to boost research and development for sustainable shipping. The teams in Leer and Bremerhaven are focusing in close coordination on wind propulsion systems, design concepts, and scientific studies for emission-free shipping. In the experimental field, the Maritime Experimental Center in Leer forms the central facility of the workgroup. The unique testing infrastructure at the other IWES locations supplements the validation options in the area of full-scale applications.
