About us

Bremen Research Centre for Energy Systems "Energy for Economy and Society

The Bremen Research Center for Energy Systems (BEST) is an association of professors of the University of Bremen in the broad field of energy systems. The goal is to create a scientific focus under the motto "Energy for Economy and Society" through the cooperation of internal expertise as well as the intensification of collaborations with industry, universities and research institutions in Bremen, the state of Bremen and the region. In particular, strong interdisciplinary cooperation between technical/mathematical/scientific, economic, sociological and legal disciplines is promoted by BEST. The energy transition is understood by all members as a transformation of a socio-technical system. The association is particularly committed to research transfer, which results from an intensive interaction of basic and applied research at the University of Bremen with the regional and supra-regional needs of society, industry and business. In this way, answers to the complex link between sustainability, security of supply and competitiveness of energy systems are developed.
