The two branches of Fraunhofer IWES are to become independent institutes: Fraunhofer IEE and Fraunhofer IWES

Since its founding in 2009, the Fraunhofer Institute for Wind Energy and Energy System Technology IWES has grown to almost 600 employees. As part of their strategic development and alignment, both divisions of the institute have developed largely independent profiles. The Executive Board and Senate of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft have therefore decided to continue the branches of the institute as independent institutes as of January 2018: as Fraunhofer IEE and Fraunhofer IWES. For customers and industry partners, the sharpening of the profile will facilitate a clear allocation of activities.
