ER LAB is a computational research group located at the Dutch Institute For Fundamental Energy Research (DIFFER), Eindhoven, the Netherlands. Our mission is the application of fundamental physical laws on the discovery of new materials for energy applications. Our portfolio includes a variety of energy-centered projects, such as the research on energy storage (hydrogen and batteries) and energy conversion (photovoltaic and solar fuels). Our unique strength is the utilization of advanced scientific algorithms on state-of-the-art high performance computing platforms for the fast and robust prediction of materials properties.
