Centre for Energy, Environment and Technology Research(CIEMAT)

The CIEMAT, an Organism of the Ministry of Science and Innovation, is a Public Research Agency for excellence in energy and environment, as well as in many vanguard technologies and in various areas of fundamental research. Since its creation in 1951 as the JEN, and since 1986 as the CIEMAT, it has been carrying out research and technological development projects, serving as a reference for technical representation of Spain in international forums, and advising government on matters within its scope.

Centre for Renewable Energy Sources and Saving (CRES)

The Centre for Renewable Energy Sources and Saving (CRES) is the Greek national centre for Renewable Energy Sources (RES), Rational Use of Energy (RUE) and Energy Saving (ES). CRES was instituted as the national coordination centre in its areas of activity by the Law 2244/94 (Production of Electricity from RES). CRES is a public entity, supervised by the Ministry of Environment, Energy and Climate Change, having, nevertheless, financial and administrative independence. During more than twenty years of its operation CRES has participated in more than 600 European and national projects. Today CRES has a scientific staff of more than 120 highly experienced and specialized scientists and engineers.
