Collaboration Program


Zero-emission energy refers to energy that emits no or minimal harmful substances or greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide. It also refers to advanced, environmentally friendly energy systems that minimize environmental impact and energy losses. Zero-emission energy is the key to solving global energy problems and environmental issues once and for all.

As a joint usage/research center for zero-emission energy research certified by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology of Japan, the Institute of Advanced Energy (IAE) strives to meet the demands of the diverse energy-related research community and the international community regarding issues of energy, the environment, and resources. We pursue joint usage and joint research projects related to zero-emission energy with researchers from around Japan, and strive to educate and foster innovative researchers who will continue with these efforts.

IAE is designated as a joint usage/research center for advancing zero-emission energy research.

We will open new frontiers in zero-emission energy by meeting the demands of the research community and pursuing joint usage and joint research projects.

  • Joint usage of large-scale specialized equipment and state-of-the-art research facilities
  • Interdisciplinary joint research and the international exchanges and talent it fosters
  • Publicizing the importance of the activities of the zero-emission energy research center and encouraging researchers in different fields to join our mission
