Intersolar Europe is the world’s leading exhibition for the solar industry and its partners and takes place annually at the Messe München exhibition center in Munich, Germany. The event’s exhibition and conference both focus on the areas of photovoltaics, solar thermal technologies, solar plants, as well as grid infrastructure and solutions for the integration of renewable energy. Since being founded more than 28 years ago, Intersolar has become the most important industry platform for manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, service providers and partners of the solar industry.
As a result of the planned nuclear and coal phase-out, the threat of an “electricity shortfall” is impending in just a few years, warn market researchers. Only if photovoltaic systems are significantly expanded from 2020 onwards and are flanked by sufficient storage capacity, will the security of supply and climate protection be equally guaranteed.
This emerges from the first results of a study by the market and economic research company EuPD Research. In the renewable energies sector, with the exception of photovoltaics, there is no technology available that can be expanded in large quantities in the short term. As a rule, hurdles for long-term approval and grid connection procedures, such as in the wind sector, do not exist for solar systems.
The video gives you an insight into the highlights of Intersolar Europe 2019, the world's leading exhibition for the solar industry. From PV production technologies to hybrid inverters to subsidy-free business models, the topics explored at the 2019 event were highly diverse and well received by around 50,000 visitors.
The solar industry is currently enjoying highly dynamic growth, which is spurring innovative power. For the twelfth time, the Intersolar AWARD has been given to companies driving the photovoltaics innovation for the new energy world forward. This year’s winners are Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd., Raycatch Ltd., and Zhejiang Jinko Solar Co., Ltd..
