IRES2016 Banner DEU Call verlängert

The Call for Abstracts for the 10th International Renewable Energy Storage Conference (IRES 2016) is inviting international scientists to submit an abstract. Based on the selection of abstracts, the conference program with parallel paper sessions and a poster exhibition is put together. We encourage you to submit your abstract until 30 September 2015 here.


You are invited to submit abstracts addressing the following topics:


POLITICS, POLICIES, LAW AND MARKET
  •  
The legal, political, social, national economic and market economic aspects of integrating energy storage into the energy supply system
  •  
Market entry strategies and the associated business and cost models for the operation of storage systems and hybrid and combined Renewable Energy power plants/virtual power plants under different economic and technological frameworks (developed countries, developing countries, emerging economies)
  •  
Renewable Energy Finance and Energy Economics: market strategies, computability of economic growth and the energy transition, (financial) strategies for the development of renewable energy systems in countries of the Global South
  •  
And in particular: realized systems and operational experience

MUNICIPALITY ENERGY SUPPLY SYSTEMS
  •  
In particular, we would like to encourage the submission of papers on local initiatives for energy supply including storage technologies of any kind. More and more cities and local communities take the energy supply in their own hands. We would like to foster discussion among these initiatives and we want to share experience from local energy supply communities from all over the word. All kinds of aspects are appreciate (marketing, involvement of people, financing, technical concepts, barriers, best practice, future plans, etc.)

TECHNOLOGIES, SYSTEMS, PLANTS & SCENARIOS
  •  
The need for storage capacity: scenarios and assessment studies for all applications and energy sectors
  •  
Storage technology for electrical energy, heat and mobility (electrochemical, electrostatic, electromechanical, electro-dynamic, chemical, thermal and thermo-chemical
  •  
Strategies for systems with a high share of Renewable Energy and 100% Renewable Energy systems – focus on the use of storage
  •  
Connecting electric-drive vehicles and the electric grid (vehicle to grid)
  •  
Smart grid concepts and hybrid and combined Renewable Energy power plants/virtual power plants with Renewable Energy
  •  
Heat storage for buildings and industrial applications
  •  
Compact thermal energy storage: design of reactors, heat exchanger development, optimization of heat and mass transport as well as simulations of all these aspects
  •  
High temperature storage for Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) technologies
  •  
Products, management strategies and field experience with storage systems to increase self-consumption of photovoltaic energy from owned facilities as well as off-grid and micro-grid systems

NETWORKS
  •  
Electric grids and storage – supplements and competition
  •  
Distributed and decentralized electricity storage as virtual large-scale storage facility
  •  
CHP and heating networks, use of new or existing thermal storage in the power grids
  •  
High temperature storage for solar thermal power plants (CSP) or compressed air energy storage
  •  
Interaction of the energy networks for power, gas and heat
  •  
Cross-sectoral use of energy storage systems: Power-to-Gas, Power-to-Heat, Power-to-Mobility, Power-to-Chemicals


Submissions will be presented as paper or poster presentations.

Paper presentation:
Paper presentations (15 min + 5 min discussion) are taking place in parallel sessions. Slots for paper presentations are assigned based on the quality of the abstract. Please note that there is no guarantee for a paper presentation as available slots are limited.

Poster presentation:
As part of the conference, posters will be presented in prime space where the attendees can view them also during breaks and in special poster sessions. A0 size poster walls will be available.

In order to offer more researcher the opportunity to present their work, we have decided to extend the deadline for the submission of abstracts for poster presentations until the 1 February 2016.

In a nutshell: Information for Poster Presentations

  • please use the same formalities (mentioned below)
  • until 30 September, the online platform can be used
  • afterwards, please send your abstract by email to IRES[AT]eurosolar.de


Assessment of abstracts

After the deadline all abstracts will be reviewed and assessed by the steering committee based on content, form, and suitability for the event. The steering committee is fully authorized to reject contributions. The decision by the steering committee is final.

Formalities

  •  
300 words (plus two optional pages maximum, including charts or diagrams with captions and explanatory remarks)
  •  
Font: Times New Roman, 12 pt, title in capital letters
  •  
Single line spacing
  •  
File to be submitted in .doc or .pdf
  •  
Submissions and presentations have to submitted and delivered in English language
  •  
For the accepted papers, power point and poster presentations additional graphic requirements will be made available.

Resolution der Mitgliederversammlung

Resolution der Mitgliederversammlung 2019

"Ohne beschleunigte Energiewende ist kein ernstzunehmender Klimaschutz möglich"

Energiebedingte Emissionen machen aktuell rund 85 Prozent der deutschen Treibhausgas-Emissionen aus. Das zeigt: Ohne sofortige Energiewende mit 100 Prozent Erneuerbaren Energien ist ernstgemeinter Klimaschutz unmöglich. Der Vorstand und die Mitglieder der deutschen Sektion von EUROSOLAR e.V. fordern daher von der Bundesregierung die dringend notwendige, beschleunigte und ambitionierte Nutzung Erneuerbarer Energien. Nicht nur, um alles Leben vor den Folgen einer ungebremsten Klimaveränderung zu schützen, sondern auch, um den technologischen wie sozialen Fortschritt in Deutschland voranzubringen und als Vorbild für andere Industrienationen, Schwellen- und Entwicklungsländer zu dienen.

  • Editorial 1 – 2020

    „Der Wechsel zu emissionsfreien und unerschöpflichen Energien ist jedoch der nervus rerum jeder nachhaltigen Klima- und Umweltstrategie. Wer diesen als nachrangig ansieht, braucht mit einer globalen Klimaschutzstrategie gar nicht erst anzufangen."

    Hermann Scheer (1944 – 2010)

  • EUROSOLAR im weltweiten Klimanotstand: Aufruf zur Dekade der Regeneration

    Beitrag von Peter Droege, erschienen im Solarzeitalter 1-2020

    Für Klimastabilisierung mit 100 % Erneuerbaren Energien: Der neue Corona-Virus hält die Welt seit Wochen in Atem. Massive internationale Maßnahmen werden unternommen, die Pandemie einzudämmen, und sie davon abzuhalten, eine boomende Weltwirtschaft zu infizieren. Fast tausend Menschen fielen ihr bislang zum Opfer, und mehrere hunderttausend Menschen gelten bereits als betroffen.

  • 20 Jahre EEG – „Viel Feind, viel Ehr“

    Beitrag von Nina Scheer, erschienen im Solarzeitalter 1-2020

    „Die schnelle und umfassende Einführung Erneuerbarer Energien heute garantiert, dass wir morgen eine umweltfreundliche, sichere und kostengünstige Energie für alle haben.“ Mit diesen Worten überzeugte Hermann Scheer, Gründungsvater von EUROSOLAR, langjähriger SPD-Bundestagsabgeordneter, Träger des Alternativen Nobelpreises und eben auch Architekt des EEG, weltweit und vor Ort.
