On the 23rd November the SIRACH network will be visiting The International Energy Research Centre (IERC) in Cork, Ireland. The IERC is an industry-led collaborative research centre specialising in integrated sustainable energy systems and it delivers world leading collaborative research to meet global societal needs for secure, affordable and sustainable energy services. Reserach partners develop new products and services that ensure real energy demand reductions across society.
The event will begin with an overview of the Centre and it's research from Tony Day , Director of the IERC, delegates will then hear a number of industry experts each exploring a different aspect of thermal storage. As well as presentations the event will include a facilitated networking session and a tour of the Centre.
