Energy continues to be an essential key to worldwide development approaching higher standard of life. The main source of energy in the past and present in industrial nations has been fossil energy and in the next century these countries will need to depend more on coal, nuclear and renewable energy. Generation of energy from fossil fuels is always associated with loss of thermal energy as well as undesired by-products and polluting materials. Twenty years ago nuclear energy was widely believed to be the energy of the future but today because of some unsolved problems in this field there is a large question mark on the whole nuclear industry. Overcoming these energy problems requires developing new energy systems which are environmentally friendly. In this paper, the author presents the latest development and the results obtained from a project of an integrated renewable energy and energy storage (IREES) system. The IREES system, which is a total renewable energy based electricity supply system, finds so many applications as it can be used as a large scale power supply being connected to national grids as well as a small scale power supply for remote areas. Findings and results arising from this research project will be of practical value for both power suppliers and people as energy users as this system not only conserves energy but also helps preserve the environment
