Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

The International Renewable Energy Storage conference 2009 is already the 4th of its kind. EUROSOLAR and the WCRE have established a successful international conference series that contributes to the developments in energy storage and publicizes their applications.   

IRES has popularized many new approaches and triggered genuine technological advancements. The annual event presents the state of technology and especially the resulting energy storage applications that open up ground breaking opportunities for the dynamic exploitation of renewable energy in manifold energy-autonomous forms, in residential construction and by and for enterprises, residential developments, cities, regions and countries.    
Besides the technological and scientific questions regarding an integrated regenerative energy system IRES will also highlight the necessary political framework for the market penetration of renewable energy and the support schemes for energy storage technologies.   

The IRES conference series brings together stakeholders from the regenerative and conventional energy industries, from R&D and politics. It acts as a stimulus for their strategies to enhance   the entry of renewable energy.

You are all cordially invited to IRES 2009.

Yours sincerely

Dr. Hermann Scheer
