Bonn, 04.09.2017. EUROSOLAR and the World Council for Renewable Energy (WCRE) will organize the 12th International Renewable Energy Storage Conference (IRES 2018) together with the Energy Storage Europe (conference + expo) in Düsseldorf, Germany from 13 to 15 March 2018 to provide a platform to discuss all kinds of storage technologies, the most recent scientific developments as well as the framework conditions for the successful market roll-out in Germany, Europe and the world.
The growth of renewable energy in our energy systems requires the application of suitable technology to guarantee an uninterrupted energy supply. Therefore the storage of heat and electricity for various timescales and energy demands plays a central role.
The electricity, heat and mobility sectors will increasingly interact in the future. Ground breaking opportunities and prospects are emerging for technological innovations, industries and businesses. Energy storage for electricity, heat and mobility enables the dynamic exploitation of renewable energy in ever more diverse forms: for enterprises, residential and commercial construction, residential developments, cities, regions and countries.
The combined event has established as the international gathering of all relevant stakeholders: researchers and scientists, leaders from the energy storage industries, renewable and conventional energy businesses, grid operators and utilities, representatives from the hybrid and electric vehicle sectors, energy associations, politicians and the financial industry.
The IRES conference program – parallel sessions and a poster exhibition – is organized based on the submissions to the international Call for Abstracts. Experts from the fields of science, politics, law and society are invited to submit abstracts on their work related to energy storage possibilities regarding technical, political, legal and social perspectives and in particular:
- Technologies, Systems, Plants and Scenarios
- Politics, Policies, Law, Finances and Market
- Smart Environments
- Global Approaches
- Energy Storage in Emerging Countries
- Municipality Energy Supply Systems
All contributions will be assessed and selected by an international steering committee. Researchers, scientists, practitioners and storage experts are invited to submit an abstract until September 15 2017 online (https://www.conftool.pro/ires2018/). The detailed description of the Call can be found here. Please feel free to circulate the call amongst your networks and your (online) publications!
