In addition to the industrial research, publicly funded research projects with industrial involvement and project-based support by appropriate funding institutions within the energy and environmental technology are of central importance. Further, the Institute for New Energy Systems (InES) is involved in several national and international research networks, such as the Solar Heating and Cooling Programme of the International Energy Agency. Institute scientists are also represented in numerous national and international committees and advisory boards.

Particular attention will be given at InES on the education and training of young scientists, so that  a number of research projects are connected to the promotion or the master's degree of a project team member. Here, several doctoral research and research-related Master's theses have already been successfully completed. Secondly, students from all study courses of the Technical University of Ingolstadt and from national and international partner universities are actively involved in the research projects.
From the research activities of InES more than 120 scientific publications and lectures so far resulted in English and German.
