The Research Institute for Solar Energy and New Energies (IRESEN) was created in 2011 under the initiative of the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Environment and several public and private actors of the energy sector in order to support the Moroccan energy strategy through market-oriented applied research and innovation in the field of green technologies. IRESEN is today an effective arm of the State to support the national energy strategy and is positioned on the entire value chain of green innovation, through financial support, human and technical assistance to researchers, PhD students, entrepreneurs (startups, SMEs and industrialists) throughout the entire process of project development: identification of needs, design, R&D, demonstration, incubation until the marketing of innovative products, processes and services.
