The LCEC is a research and development group from ISEL, focused in energy conversion and sustainable energy usage, colaborating with industry and academia.
Our research activities combine theory by the numerical computational modelling and experimental throught the rapid prototyping devices and low carbon energy systems development, using our laboratory facilities.
The LCEC group undertakes the computational and experimental research to enhance energy conversion systems from electric generation to efficient energy usage, with a focus on: electric mobility, energy management and storage, smartgrids and variable speed generators.
The energy transformation becomes crucial for the future of energy systems that minimize our impact on climate and environment.
Energy efficiency, storage and intelligent use, are the keys to invest in emerging technologies that supports the innovation, reducing energy costs and other economic impacts.
These aspects related with "energy conversion" lead to the LCEC vision:
"Towards a low carbon future with a sustainable, affordable and reliable energy."
