CRIEPI was established in 1951 as a Japanese nonprofit public benefit corporation to undertake research and development activities related to energy and the environment, and Energy Engineering Research Laboratory (EERL) was established in 2004 through reorganization.
Among the major changes in the environment surrounding the energy industry, as evidenced by deregulation of the energy and electrical power markets, a heightened awareness of the global warming issues, and diversification of lifestyles, EERL creates innovative basic technology to provide choices to the energy industry and to society. EERL maintains energy security by presenting diversified energy sources. Our activities contribute to the creation of highly efficient, clean, and low-cost new power and energy supply and demand systems. It leads to the transition to a recycling society.
