Banneri Research

The Research Infrastructure Database, supported by ELECTRA and maintained by DERlab, received a complete revision of its structure and functionalities and also comes in a new design.
The database focuses on research infrastructure in the DER and smart grid field and presents laboratories, testing facilities and similar competencies, clustering all relevant information and the labs' profiles systematically. In total, more than 200 facilities from over 45 institutes – mainly from Europe and the US – can be found in the database. The extensive search options now also allow a full-text keyword search, ensuring you to find relevant entries efficiently.
