About Us

The UAE has set many ambitious and strategic energy goals and launched many pioneering energy projects to achieve said goals. Achieving these targets requires the development of intellectual and human capital to provide innovative ideas and solutions for optimizing and advancing energy delivery and utilization. In response to this, the Advanced Power and Energy Center (APEC) aims to craft the future of electric energy systems allowing seamless and economical operation of high capacity renewable and clean energy resources while supporting hybrid AC/DC grids, and providing optimal architecture for smart grid and transportation electrification.

Research Priority: Clean and Renewable Energy

Mission

APEC is aiming to craft the future of electric energy systems allowing seamless and economical operation of high capacity renewable/non-renewable energy resources (PV, concentrated solar and nuclear), while supporting hybrid AC/DC grids, and providing optimal architecture for smart grid and transportation electrification

Vision
  • Perform high quality, cutting-edge research and scholarship that applies a unique combination of faculty academic and industrial expertise with excellent established laboratory facilities
  • Promote and facilitate collaborative and/or interdisciplinary research with local and international industries and develop long-term research networking capacity
  • Transfer and mobilize knowledge gained through research into applications with societal and/or economic impact
  • Develop an excellence-training center based in Abu Dhabi to help and provide engineers in power sectors in GCC countries with knowledge, understanding and skills relating to new and emerging technologies applied to the electric grid
