Welcome to the KIT Energy Center

The KIT Energy Center with its 1250 employees is one of the largest energy research centers in Europe. It bundels the energy research activities of the KIT, the merger of the former Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe and Universität Karlsruhe and reknown cooperation partners. By this, it crosses the lines between disciplines and combines fundamental and applied research in all relevant energies for industry, household, service and mobility.


The involved institutes and research groups conduct the research work on their own authority. The joining of subjects, the interdisciplinary collaboration of scientists, and the common use of high-end devices and installations, develops a new quality of research and teaching. The KIT Energy Center develops solutions in energy technology from a single source and acts as a highly valuable consultancy institution for politics, business, and society in all questions of energy.

The working areas of the KIT Energy Center are structured in seven topics.

Record for Perovskite/CIGS Tandem Solar Module

Prototype of a Perovskite/CIGS Tandem Thin-Film Solar Module Achieves an Efficiency of 17.8 Percent / First-Ever to Surpass the Efficiency of Single Perovskite and CIGS Solar Modules
