Subject areas

Categories of iSEnEC

The iSEnEC integrates multiple technical conferences from subject areas which will contribute significantly to the development of sustainable energy systems based on renewable energy sources. The technical conferences are grouped around plenary talks and a technical exhibition.

Each conference is managed by renowned experts from both industry and science. The talks will reflect the state of the technology, show examples for implementation and highlight leading scientific work. Central to the iSEnEC is the idea of system integration of renewables.
