Top-100 publication

CCER's journal article ‘ Accurate and efficient band gap predictions of metal halide perovskites using the DFT-1/2 method: GW accuracy with DFT expense ’ by Shuxia Tao, Xi Cao and Peter Bobbert has been selected as one of the top 100 read materials science papers for Scientific Reports in 2017.

Collaboration with the Netherlands eScience Center

Dr. ir. Jan van Dijk (TU/e, CCER) has received a grant with a value of 212.500 Euro for his proposal in a recent project call by the Netherlands eScience Center, entitled: “Passing XSAMS”.

Koelman appointed part-time professor

We are happy to announce that per March 1, 2018, CCER director Vianney Koelman was appointed at TU/e (department of Applied Physics) as part-time professor in Computational Energy Research. Congratulations Vianney!

From food colorants to new battery materials

With a research grant from the NWO program on Materials for Sustainability, computational scientist Süleyman Er and his research team will develop new battery materials for stationary electrical energy storage.

New Year’s message

We have left the CCER inaugural year behind us. Reflecting back on 2017 I am proud of what we jointly achieved.

Jonathan Citrin to chair ITPA Transport & Confinement Group

The International Tokamak Physics Activity ( ITPA ) Central Committee has appointed DIFFER group leader and CCER member Dr. Jonathan Citrin as chair of its topical group on Transport and Confinement starting 1 January 2018.

CCER agreement signed

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.

First CCER publications

Just a few months after the launch of the Center for Computational Energy Research, the first research results are already being published.

Calculations on energy

With the advent of the Center for Computational Energy Research (CCER), which was opened officially on June 21, cooperation will begin between TU/e and DIFFER in the area of calculations with energy. The CCER will place emphasis on model formation and explorative computer simulations, which must have a guiding role for experimental energy research.

A wonderful launch to a promising collaboration

On the longest day of the year the Center for Computational Energy Research (CCER) was officially opened. Scientific director Vianney Koelman welcomed more than 100 visitors and positioned the new center as follows "The CCER aims to accelerate energy innovation by integrating high performance computing with energy research".

Diederik Samsom speaks at official opening of CCER

On Wednesday June 21 former PvdA leader Diederik Samsom will speak at the official opening of the Center for Computational Energy Research (CCER), a new research center founded by TU/e in cooperation with DIFFER to perform computations concerning the energy systems of the future, such as nuclear fusion, solar fuels and thermal energy storage.

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.
