We work with power electronics – a
'green' technology which conserves resources. We position companies
and universities, and help improve Danish competitiveness
and create jobs.
Initiatives powered by CEES
Denmark among top 5
Denmark was a top-5 contributor of publications to the APEC 2014 power electronics conference.
The CORPE research centre was established in 2011, based on a CEES initiative. Prior to this, CEES had organised a number of informative seminars on reliability.
Prizes and donations
CEES awards prizes and donations to a number of students each year.
The IEPE project was established by CEES in 2012.
The EnergyLab.dk development school is an offshoot of CEES.
Power electronics on the agenda
• Danish Industry's national top-10 priority list (2003)
• Part of the national development strategy since 2001
• On the EU's research programme agenda since the Third Framework Programme

Intelligent Efficient Power Electronics
IEPE is a research project run jointly by three major Danish universities – Aarhus University (AAU), Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and the University of Southern Denmark (SDU). A number of large Danish companies from the industry also contribute expertise in the field of power electronics – Danfoss, Grundfos, Vestas, KK Wind Solutions and CEES.
The project is based on the integration of efficient power electronics and intelligent control technologies.
Via development ideas and hypotheses, the project focuses on the cornerstones for connecting solar and wind power units, improving the interconnection of power converters and developing new sensor and monitoring technology for GBTs and diodes.
