KENTECH InstitutesKENTECH’s Researchers and Five Specialized Energy Institutes
Researchers at KENTECH are committed to performing current challenging R&D thorugh global research collaboration. They work closely with energy industries to produce practical world-class deliverables to meet their needs. KENTECH will be at the forefront of developing future energy solutions to help achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.
KENTECH has a goal to become the "global hub for energy research " through converged and integrated research efforts in the energy fields. KENTECH researchers adopt convergence research approaches to resolving the issues arising from the climate change challenge We have five major energy research institutes at KENTECH: Institute for Energy AI, Institute for Energy Materials and Devices, Institute for Grid Modernization, Institute for Hydrogen Energy, and Institute for Environmental and Climate Technology.
IP Strategy Center
The Center Promotes Creative Activity and Support Strategic Creation of Intellectual Property (IP) IP management, technology transfer, commercialization, and fostering innovative talents.
Global Research Partner
KENTECH secured a competitive position as a global R&D institute by establishing joint research cooperation and alliance with leading global universities and energy research institutes. KENTECH is also promoting flagship research projects in the five energy fields in by jointly performing the R&D projects and actively exchanging energy researchers and scientists.
KENTECH Central Equipment Center
KENTECH Central Equipment Center performs research and analysis activities to tackle domestic and international challenges, such as zero carbon initiatives, create productive research results in strategic alliance with industry, academia, and research institutes, and train energy researchers and scholars..
To strengthen research capabilities at the five major energy research institutes, KENTECH starts to construct transmission electron microscope (TEM), followed by investing KRW 40 billion in a joint research equipment by 2025. We plan to provide training on high-level analysis methods and various know-how by establishing a support system for research facilities and equipment.
In 2025, when the KENTECH facilities are fully completed, we expect to possess the state of the art test and analysis capabilities specified by the Korea Laboratory Accreditation Scheme (KOLAS), with the management system to ensure the high reliability of the research facility equipment.
