Energy Sustainability

CERN is a large-scale research infrastructure attracting the best researchers to work at the cutting-edge of science and technology. In accomplishing its scientific mission, CERN’s scientists and technicians develop a unique expertise that can be of use for domains other than High Energy Physics.

An example is given by energy sustainability, where CERN plays a role by:

  • Transferring HEP technologies to society, providing innovative solutions for sustainable energy
  • Sharing and improving its own energy management with other large-scale laboratories and organizations.
