We are the EDP Group's Research and Development Centre
Our focus is on working every day to invent the future of energy and contribute to a carbon-free society.
We aim to become a reference in the energy sector by consistently participating in early stages of technology and knowledge development.
To carry out our ambition we adopted a project-based structure which suits our concept of NEW R&D Centre, allowing a swift approach to project implementation. Notwithstanding, synergies among the projects are explored to encourage efficient use of resourced, and the energy sector is our background scope and therefore continually surveyed.
We boast over 50 researchers, more than 40 projects in our portfolio and we will continue to grow. We want to do more and be more. That is why every day at NEW we work to be a leading R&D centre for innovation and knowledge sharing, creating superior value to EDP Group and society.
What we do
We are fully dedicated to the development and implementation of innovative and R&D projects across different areas of the energy sector, with the purpose of anticipating trends in the sector.
Supported by a highly qualified team with a broad knowledge in the energy sector, we work on EDP’s seven
innovation domains: RES as the main source of energy, Grid of the future, Distributed Energy resources, Green Hydrogen, Storage and Flexibility, Future mobility journey and Energy usage decarbonization.
We adopt a collaborative approach to innovation, partnering with EDP’s business units and multiple European institutions, companies, and universities to develop large R&D projects leveraged by public competitive funding for Research and Innovation – like the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe programs.
