Energy Engineering Research Laboratory

HOME > Introduction

  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. We reviewed the four research areas in April 2016 and reconstructed research sectores with easy to understand and efficient for the future.

 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 is working on support of utilization and technology for present power stations, proposal and development of high efficiency, low cost and clean new power generation technology for the next generation, and creation of an energy platform in harmonized with society and the environment.
