Over 100 representatives from 39 companies and 23 research institutions met in Munich at the Campeon, headquarters of Infineon Technologies AG, for the kick-off of the European research initiative PowerizeD. They focused on intelligence in power electronics and thus want to contribute to the decarbonization of European society and the protection of our climate. PowerizeD is to take the sustainability and resilience of the European energy chain, from generation to application, to a new level and strengthen Europe’s technological sovereignty.

62 research partners from 13 European countries are involved in the major European project with an overall volume of 72 million euros. PowerizeD addresses a new level of technology and relies increasingly on the digitalization of power applications. Infineon Technologies AG initiated the project, is an active participant with several corporate divisions and is also the overall project coordinator.

“We have to make highly efficient use of energy if we are to achieve net-zero climate protection goals. Digitalization can help here as a highly decisive lever for more energy efficiency,” said Constanze Hufenbecher, Infineon Chief Digital Transformation Officer. “We are pleased to be able to combine our strengths with the strengths of so many excellent partners from research and business to jointly make the ambitious European research initiative PowerizeD a success.”

“Power electronics is key to the energy transformation and is used anywhere and everywhere that electricity is generated, transferred and used efficiently,” said Dr. Rutger Wijburg, Chief Operations Officer at Infineon. “The broad spectrum of power electronics applications makes it very important that we collaborate with partners across the boundaries of corporate entities and organizations to jointly advance Europe as innovation engine.”
