Mission and Goal
The Institute of Advanced Energy (IAE) was established to promote researches to sophisticate the generation,conversion, and utilization of energy. Our goals are
(a) to conduct pioneering research on advanced energy science and technology,
(b) to propose solutions to energy and environmental issues associated with rapid global population expansion,
(c) to contribute to the sustainable progress of humankind.
We perform comprehensive approach towards development of next-generation energy systems, which have the potential to replace existing energy systems, with two viewpoints, Quality (harmonization with the environment) and Quantity (social infrastructure). In order to secure sustainable energy resources or systems, our research activities emphasize improving the performance of energy systems, developing new energy resources, and realizing systems for effective use of energy resources, which can be named as Zero Emission Energy System. Moreover, through these endeavors, we aim to foster scientists and engineers who possess advanced knowledge and skills in energy science and technology.
To meet our objectives, we strive to further develop the research field of Advanced Energy (or Zero Emission Energy) by building an innovative energy system that has high social receptivity, as well as by developing a system capable of incorporating various sources of energy. Human and research resources at IAE, which are from diverse academic backgrounds, will be strengthened and organically coordinated among different research fields, thereby promoting interdisciplinary and fused research. IAE serves as a hub for advanced energy research in Japan and around the globe. These activities will further pioneer and develop advanced energy research to bridge us to the next generation and contribute to the growth of society.
