EnTranCe is Energy Academy’s open-innovation testing facility. The Energy Transition Centre cuts from-blueprint-to-market time in half. New energy solutions reach the market faster because students – from vocational education to master’s programmes – researchers and business have the opportunities, the technological infrastructure, and the best possible network to develop their ideas into products and services that meet market demand.




Our focus is people in power. This means: decentralised energy production, power to the end-user and young talanted individuals, and solutions for a sustainable future.
