Since 2006 EUROSOLAR (the European Association for Renewable Energy) and WCRE (the World Council for Renewable Energy) have successfully organized the scientific conference series on International Renewable Energy Storage (IRES). From 14 till 16 March 2017 the 11th International Renewable Energy Storage Conference (IRES 2017) will take place together with the Energy Storage Europe (conference + expo) in Düsseldorf, Germany.

This established conference presents the latest research results and development experience for renewable energy storage. Presenters analyze and discuss the applicability and need for storage in the power, heating and transport and mobility sectors. The latest technological improvements as well as the framework conditions for the use and integration of energy storage systems are explored, while particular attention is given to the applicability in decentralized energy supply systems.

Special topics of interest of the 2017 conference program are:

  • Global Approaches
  • Municipality Energy Supply Systems
  • Framework Conditions (Politics, Policies, Law, Finances)
  • Technologies, Systems, Plants and Scenarios
  • Networks
