Research in Niederaussem – a centre dedicated to the future of coal
The region researches and the world benefits
RWE truly brings this statement to life in Niederaussem. Through technical innovation, we wish to make coal viable as an energy source for the future. After all, coal will continue to play a central role in power generation in the decades to come, as confirmed by extensive analyses undertaken by reputable institutes such as PROGNOS AG from Basel and the Institute of Energy Economics at the University of Cologne. For this reason, we bundle our pioneering activities at the Niederaussem power plant site and have invested over 100 million euros in research and development in recent years. Our projects go straight from the site to the workbench, so to speak.
Our aim: to achieve significant reductions in CO₂ emissions
On our website, we present the many projects that are underway at the Coal Innovation Centre in a clear, understandable way, with plenty of additional background information, films and downloads:
