The idea for INES Solaire, a National Solar Energy Institute can be traced back to 1998 when local politicians, most notably Michel Barnier and Jean-Pierre Vial, realized the importance of creating a center of reference for solar energy. The project began to take shape in 2005 with the convergence of four determining factors: the unshakeable support of local politicians (Département of Savoie and Rhône-Alpes Region), the expertise of local associations, including 20 years of unique work by the ASDER (Savoie Association for the Development of Renewable Energies), the long-term presence of pioneering companies in the field (Clipsol, Photowatt, etc.), and the investment of major research laboratories, led by the CEA, CNRS and University of Savoie. Today, all of INES’s partners are represented on the institute’s steering committee, which is responsible for governing the institute under the co-presidency of the two local authorities (département and region).

Letters of Invitation for SP2018

Letters of Invitation for SP2018 can be issued to registered delegates upon request. It is the delegate’s responsibility to investigate the visa requirements for France and apply for a visa, if necessary. Short-stay visas may be required for travelers who are not nationals of France or certain visa-exempt countries. This visa allows a person to visit France on a temporary basis for tourism or business purposes for a period of 90 days or less. It must be applied for from the relevant French embassy or consulate in the delegate’s country of residence.
