E.ON Supports Nanotechnology with € 6 Million

Monday, March 31, 2008

- Minute particles with great potential in the energy technology sector
- Continuation of € 60 million research program

Exploring the potential of nanotechnology for energy supply - this is the focus of the current invitation for applications under E.ON’s International Research Initiative. This year a sum of € 6 million is again available for this purpose. Teams and researchers from all over the world can apply to E.ON to obtain support for projects dealing with the use of nanotechnology in fields such as energy storage, electricity transmission, carbon capture and storage or energy saving through Nano LEDs for example. With this focus E.ON is backing a still very young research discipline because experts assume that the minute particles ranging from 1 to 100 nanometers in size can greatly benefit energy use that is both more efficient and better for our climate.

The invitation for applications is part of the International Research Initiative successfully launched in 2007 under which E.ON will make € 60 million available by 2016 for research projects with different lines of emphasis. Teams and researchers at universities or research institutes are eligible for the grants. E.ON is supporting international energy research to find solutions to important questions in the field of energy technology. E.ON does not claim exclusive title to the findings produced; they will remain the property of the researchers and are to be made accessible to the public via publications.

A detailed description of the project subjects and information on the project support can be found at www.eon.com/research_initiative.
