The European Association for Renewable Energy EUROSOLAR holds its 16th International Renewable Energy Storage Conference (IRES 2022) on September 20-22, 2022 as a hybrid event with both physical attendance option at Messe Duesseldorf and online via live streaming.

IRES is the world’s largest refereed science and technology conference in storage and related systems technologies for renewable energy, providing a comprehensive scientific treatment of energy storage technologies and systems. The conference program encompasses all storage systems in their context, and welcomes case studies, applications, country scenarios, trend analyses, and barriers to be overcome for the transition process.

While the IRES will cover again the full range of topics, this years special focus also emphasizes the decarbonisation of industrial processes by the use of renewable energy storage and related systems.

The conference is accompanied by Europe’s largest B2B exhibition on energy storage and decarbonised industries. The colocation of the conference and the exhibition in one venue provides an ideal opportunity for scientists, innovators, entrepreneurs and investors, policymakers and students to meet. Access to all parts of the conference, the exhibition as well as to the networking events is included in the registration fee for oral and poster presenters.

The deadline for submitting an abstract for an “oral presentation” is Thursday, March 31, 2022.
