Intersolar Europe opens its doors this week in Munich, Germany, and with it comes ees Europe, an accompanying exhibition for batteries and energy storage systems.
Our team, along with sister publication PV Tech, will be at the show this week from Wednesday to Friday and we’re looking forward to meetings with established contacts and new faces alike.
Each successive show around the world brings us bigger and better things it seems, and with Intersolar Europe now running for more than 26 years, there will be a lot to look forward to.
The ees Forum, taking place in hall B1, will see startups, experts and a range of exhibitors offering their insights into the energy storage industry. EuPD Research, which is behind the joint host of ees Europe, the International Battery and Energy Storage Alliance (IBESA), will present its findings on the status quo and future of the energy storage market on the first day.
Tomorrow (31 May) will also see the prestigious ees AWARD presented, with finalists to show off their nominated entries onstage at 1pm. This year’s finalists are: BYD, Energy Depot Deutschland, IRIS Energy, KOSTAL Industry Elektrik, LG Chem, NIDEC, Skeleton Technologies, SolarEdge and Solarwatt.
On 1 June, the ees show’s focus is on small-scale and commercial energy storage systems, from startups and innovations to the connection with e-mobility and HVAC. The next day then sees the focus turn to large-scale energy storage systems, including both the significant challenges and opportunities facing industrial or “neighbourhood-scale” distributed energy storage systems. Presentations will come from groups including Germany’s main solar energy industry association BSW-Solar and from ZVEH (German Central Association of Electrical and Information Technology Contractors).
Familiar names from our coverage at Energy-Storage.News, from Younicos to Mercedes-Benz Energy, will be showcasing their products and services, and we will be bringing you our thoughts and commentaries on the show as it happens.
