Reiner Lemoine Institute is an independent non-profit research institution that contributes to a transformation towards a sustainable energy supply based on 100 % renewable energy. Our three research fields are “Transformation of Energy Systems”, “Mobility with Renewable Energy”, and “Off-Grid Systems”. We conduct applied research to scientifically support the long-term transition of the energy supply system towards renewable energy.
The goal of the institute is to scientifically support the long-term transition of the energy supply to 100% renewables. The institute’s basic funding is provided by Reiner Lemoine-Stiftung. Reiner Lemoine was a pioneer of renewable energy. While others were thinking and talking about alternative forms of energy, Reiner Lemoine took the lead and founded the solar companies SOLON and Q-Cells, amongst others.
The people from RLI also like Knowledge Sharing - Reiner Lemoine Institut and Open Source - Reiner Lemoine Institut. They also conceived the Open Energy Platform to improve energy system modelling by making the whole process transparent.
