Founded in September 1987, CRES is a public entity, supervised by
the Ministry of Development having financial and administrative
With a scientific staff of more than 120 highly experienced and
specialised scientists, and engineers, CRES operates in two main
fields of activity:
* As a Research and Technological Centre for RES/RUE/ES, by
developing applied research for the new energy technologies and
by technically supporting the market for the penetration and the
implementation of these technologies.
* As the National Energy Centre, working on energy planning and
policy for RES and ES and developing the necessary infrastructure
to support the implementation of RES&ES investment projects.
Over the years CRES has participated in more than 600 European,
national and international projects. These include applied
research projects and development, demonstration projects, energy
policy studies, development of energy information systems and
energy modelling, investment feasibility studies, technical and
economic studies, environmental impact assessments, market
research as well as activities for the promotion of RES/RUE/ES.
Through these projects, CRES has developed co-operation with
numerous public and private organisations, at a national,
European and international level.
