In October 2006, EUROSOLAR and the World Council for Renewable Energy started the first of a new international conference series themed “International Renewable Energy Storage Conference“ (IRES). It is intended to contribute to the developments in energy storage and to publicize their application. With a huge success the third conference took place in Berlin, November 24-25, 2008.

Through the storage of solar thermal energy, solar-generated electricity and wind power groundbreaking opportunities will emerge for the dynamic exploitation of Renewable Energies in manifold energy-autonomous forms, in residential construction and by and for enterprises, residential developments, cities, regions and countries. Herein also lies the chance of achieving numerous technological innovations along with new prospects for the industries.
