Aachen is often called the Heart of Europe, which developed from Roman settlement and in medieval times became the Imperial residence of choice of Charlemagne. Aachen is the westernmost city in Germany, located by the Dutch and Belgian border and about 38 miles (61 kilometers) away from Cologne.
Aachen is also home of the RWTH Aachen University and its E.ON Energy Research Center as well as Flexible Electrical Networks (FEN) Research Campus, a central initiative for direct current (DC) technology innovation comprising research partners from RWTH as well as industry. Together they have implemented the first MVDC research grid on Campus Melaten, using state-of-the-art industrial technology.
