Abstract The POLar Earth observing NETwork (POLENET) is an ambitions international project to deploy geophysical instruments at very remote high-latitude sites during the International Polar Year (IPY). One of the goals of the project is to run instruments year round with as little maintenance as possible. POLENET will be installed using robust lightweight systems, minimizing the need for heavy battery banks as much as possible. This weight reduction is needed in order to meet logistical constraints on deployment at very remote sites. (mod. auth. abst.)
