DERlab is delighted to become an official partner of the 8th International Conference on the Integration of Renewable and Distributed Energy Resources (IRED) that will take place on 17-19 October 2018 in Vienna (AT).

IRED is a global conference gathering experts from industry, government and academia to share information on state-of-the-art technologies, research and know-how and engage in lively discussions related to the integration of renewable and distributed energy resources into the power systems. The conference will focus on the technical, market, and regulatory issues that challenge the integration of these resources into the grid. The conference will include several opportunities for in-depth discussion within pre-conference sessions, post-conference breakouts, a poster session, and evening events.
