CCER opening event 21 June

May 19th 2017

On June 21st, 2017 the joint TU/e-DIFFER Center for Computational Energy Research (CCER) will be officially opened. The CCER aims to explore pathways to future energy systems via computational methods. The ambition is to complement experimental research in unlocking scalable energy solutions for mid-century and beyond.
