Catalonia Institute for Energy Research (IREC)

IREC logo

The Catalonia Institute for Energy Research (IREC) was founded to contribute to more sustainable energy use and consumption in the future. Economic competitiveness and maximum energy security are both taken into consideration.

The IREC makes its contribution through advances in science and technology. The research requires a long-term vision to identify future energy challenges. However, the Institute also develops technology that enables companies to implement immediate innovative solutions.

The project is closely linked to the Catalan, Spanish and international economic system. Therefore, its institutional and business   sponsors have joined forces to a singular and significant extent to attain a common objective: the creation of value by boosting scientific knowledge and technology development in the energy sector; a sector that has global consequences. As a result, IREC works in an international arena and has become a leading institute in several areas.
