Welcome in the Institute of Power Engineering

The Institute of Power Engineering (IEn) is one of the largest institutes in Poland and Central Europe providing research in the field of energy technologies. The Institute is a modern state owned research and development center.

The Institute covers a wide area of ​​energy research from expert works for the power sector, to investigations of the most advanced technologies of energy generation, such as fuel cells, clean coal technologies and renewable energy sources. The advantage of the Institute is the experienced scientific, engineering and technical staff as well as numerous modern, sometimes unique laboratory facilities.

Institute research teams are involved in realization of numerous international research projects of EU Framework Programme Horizon 2020 and 7th Framework Programme, the EU Research Fund for Coal and Steel as well as Central Europe Programme.

The Institute also carries out a number of nationwide projects funded by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education and provides implementation work for the industry. The Institute offers cooperation in the creation and implementation of new projects to develop energy technologies and high-quality expertise, technical testing and analysis for the energy sector.

The Institute is a member of the Executive Committee of the European Energy Research Alliance EERA.

Kick-off meeting of IEn's project - VETNI

2021 / 10 / 13

30 września 2021 roku odbyło sie spotkanie kick-off, rozpoczynające nowy projekt VETNI z udziałem Instytutu Enrgetyki. Grupa LOTOS, w konsorcjum z Instytutem Energetyki oraz Akademią Górniczo-Hutniczą im. Stanisława Staszica w Krakowie, uruchomiła nowy projekt wodorowy o wartości blisko 10 mln zł. Jego celem jest skonstruowanie pilotażowej instalacji w oparciu o elektrolizery stałotlenkowe (SOE). W spotkaniu udział wzięła Dyrekcja Instytutu Enrgetyki oraz pracownicy realizujący projekt z Zakładu Wysokotemperaturowych Procesów Elektrochemicznych (CPE).


New publication co-authored by IEn researchers in Energy

2021 / 09 / 14

New publication entitled "Mathematical approaches to modelling the mass transfer process in solid oxide fuel cell anode" was published in a highly-ranked magazine Energy. The article was co-authored by Marcin Blesznowski (PhD) and Prof. Jakub Kupecki from IEn's HiTEP. The publication discusses results of a comprehensive analysis of anodes of SOFC in order to develop new CFD tool for studies of mass transport in porous structures. As a results of combining experimental and numerical techniques, model which enables reduction of cost and time required for the optimization of the mass transport process through SOC's porous electrode was proposed and validated.
