In CCER (Center for Computational Energy Research), DIFFER and Eindhoven University of Technology have joined forces to accelerate energy innovation by integrating high performance computing with energy research.

On Tuesday November 7th, Managing director Drs. Jolie van Wevelingen at the TU/e faculties of Applied Physics and Electrical Engineering and DIFFER's institute manager Dr. Wim Koppers signed the formal collaboration agreement to set up the Center.

Since the official CCER opening event on 21 June 2017, the Center has produced its first scientific publication on accurate and efficient band gap predictions of metal halide perovskites using the DFT-1/2 method in Nature Scientific Results. CCER is also organising a seminar series for specialists in computational (energy) research.

About CCER

The Center for Computational Energy Research  aims to explore pathways to future energy systems. This is done via computational simulations that complement experimental energy research. The center was founded in 2017 as the result of a joint initiative between the Department of Applied Physics of the Eindhoven University of Technology and NWO Institute DIFFER.
