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.
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.
