Successful continuation of the International Renewable Energy Storage Conference

The 12th International Conference on the Storage of Renewable Energies (IRES2018) once again succeeded this year in uniting science, research, industry and companies at international level.

The conferences and the Energy Storage Europe trade fair provide a platform for interdisciplinary and professional exchange - for researchers and executives from the energy storage industry as well as from renewable and conventional energy companies, grid operators and utilities, representatives from the hybrid and electric vehicle sector, the construction industry, associations, politics and the financial industry. For this purpose, the IRES conference creates a space in which numerous international expert groups can meet and scientific developments and the framework conditions for the successful application of storage technologies in Germany, Europe and the world can be presented and discussed.
