Innovation and collaboration is in our DNA. In partnership with preeminent universities, research institutes, governments and companies, we proactively seek ways to make a significant and sustainable impact. Together, these efforts focus a wealth of scientific and engineering talent on creating commercially viable solutions to national energy and environmental problems.
In November 2009, President Barack Obama and President Hu Jintao announced the establishment of the Clean Energy Research Center (CERC). ENN as one of the founding members has been contributing to the Advanced Coal Technology Consortia (CERC-ACTC) and led the research efforts in carbon capture with microalgae and chemical looping technology in partner with the University of Kentucky.
ENN reached a ten-year strategic agreement with Peking University in 2015. This relationship leverages the combined strength of ENN’s market leadership and Peking University’s world-class technology, which together are expected to hasten the development of new energy technologies. To date, we have successfully collaborated in a variety of different energy sectors including coal gasification, thermoelectric materials and fusion, etc.
ENN and CAS have a profound and multifaceted partnership over the past decade. Our recent collaborations include degradable materials development with the Technical Institute of Physics and Chemistry (TIPC), research on hot dry rock geothermal exploration with the Institute of Geology and Geophysics (IGG), and R&D on fusion technology with the Institute of Plasma Physics (IPP) and Shanghai Advanced Research Institute (SARI).
Recognizing the critical need for scalable energy storage solutions to develop regional energy systems in China, ENN joined the MIT Energy Initiative (MITEI) in 2017 to advance research in this area.
ENN and SWIP affiliated with China National Nuclear Corporation signed a strategic cooperation agreement in January 2020 to facilitate the in-depth cooperation on the research of cutting-edge fusion technology, talent cultivation and R&D resources sharing.
ENN is partnering with CAEP on fusion device development.
ENN is collaborating with UPC on deep geothermal energy development.
ENN and Tianjin University have extensive collaborations on chemical engineering, coal gasification and chemical looping technologies research and development.
ENN is collaborating with SWPU on design and development of key instruments to be used in deep geothermal energy development.
