Innovation Excellence

“Innovation Excellence“ - with this guiding principle, ENERCON is pursuing a goal: preservation as well as reinforcement of its innovative strength. We want to safeguard our long-standing leading technological position with forward-looking technology and innovation development. The research company I4E (Innovation for ENERCON) founded as a result will support the development of new products as a high-performing innovation service provider.


Customer needs, trends as well as current market conditions are important factors for current research topics. In over 30 years, ENERCON has evolved into an efficient development organisation that always supplies the market with successful state-of-the-art technology and makes a decisive contribution to the energy revolution.   

Within strategic product development, our experts research innovative and efficient technologies using state-of-the-art methods. Operative product development is concerned with constant further development and optimisation of system components in already existing serial machines. The aim is to develop and safeguard know-how in their own company and to further expand their core skills.

The research and development landscape recently formed in 2014 on the Aurich site speaks for itself. The state-of-the-art innovation centre offers space for 700 engineers. The annexed test centre includes highly sophisticated test equipment and labs for rotor blade technology, acoustics, power electronics, generator technology and turbine engineering as a whole. Due to its close proximity to the surrounding ENERCON production plants, numerous synergy effects can be used sensibly and technology and innovation development at ENERCON can be promoted further.
