We Work in the Real World, Boots on the Ground

We explore renewable energy technologies to be adept in the new frontier of energy. From conducting field inspections to producing education programs, we are a hands-on resource.

Investigative Research

We research ideas, products and programs to better understand solutions that work. What sets us apart is our ability and desire to investigate technologies or practices in real world settings. Yes, we have a lab that we often use for research purposes, but we prefer to be in the field. We strive to provide practical solutions that can improve our customers’ products, programs or services.

Success Stories

The PEV Usage Study: Identifying Barriers

The purpose of the study was to identify potential barriers to widespread adoption of PEVs and the charging infrastructure that supports them.

Louisiana-Pacific (LP) needed new curing processes or solutions that would help meet the rising demand for a profitable product while maintaining quality and decreasing production costs.

Learning Point

How AE Defines “Applied Research”
At Advanced Energy, applied research goes beyond just doing research in the field. It also includes investigating the capacity of the existing market’s ability (either currently or with training) to install or implement the device or process being investigated and to maintain it on an on-going basis. Our staff has extensive experience in the day-to-day operations of industries, ranging from manufacturing to HVAC installation and maintenance, and we use that knowledge to develop applied research designs to meet the needs of our customers.
