Energy research Centre of the Netherlands (ECN) is the largest energy research institute in the Netherlands. With around 500 members of staff, we are active in projects both at home and abroad, in joint efforts with the industry, government authorities and research institutes. We do this from our branches in Petten, Amsterdam, Eindhoven, Brussels and China. ECN’s research has a major influence on day-to-day life. In this, we perform an important function for the society of today and the future.
