Intersolar Europe

Exhibition: May 31–June 2, 2017
Conference: May 30–31, 2017



Side-Event: PV/Energy Storage Market Brief Asia

According to the PV Market Alliance (PVMA), Asia installed more than 50 GW of PV power generation capacities, thus represents 2/3 of the total global demand in 2016. At the same time, Asia is home to more than 90% of existing global production capacities for wafer, cells and modules. This situation makes Asia one of the most attractive places to invest in the PV business. more

Photovoltaics and electric vehicles are highly significant for usage in private households

A current survey of 1,000 private households displays the relevance for the usage of “green products” at home. Photovoltaic systems as well as electric vehicles are described as having the greatest potential for usage. more

Directing Solar Power

Manufacturers will present their new inverters at Intersolar Europe

  • Battery inverters manage more than just solar power.
  • The range of solar inverters available is growing.
  • Find out about the latest innovations in the inverter industry.

In the past, solar inverters performed one single task: converting direct current generated by photovoltaics into alternating current which can be fed into the grid. more

Smart Renewable Energy Special Exhibit

One of the major challenges of the energy transition involves making the use of increasing amounts of energy generated by fluctuating renewable sources, such as the sun and wind, both efficient and affordable, while also guaranteeing the necessary grid stability and supply safety. As a “real-life laboratory” and simulation platform, Energy Lab 2.0 enables the testing of new approaches for integrating the most diverse technologies into the energy system. more

EU PVSEC to maintain European mobility

In June 2016 EU PVSEC, the largest international Conference in photovoltaics, took place in Munich at the same time as Intersolar Europe, the leading exhibition in the solar industry. more

Welcome to the new energy world

The worldwide energy market is undergoing a transformation, enabling increasing numbers of new players to move into the spotlight. Rather than large-scale, centralized nuclear and fossil fuel power stations that supply consumers with energy, in the future, the energy supply will be secured by decentralized renewable energy plants, storage systems and consumers as so-called prosumers. more

The new energy world

Lots of sunshine, strong winds: The conditions in spring are ideal for renewable energies. Almost too ideal, as May 2016 demonstrated: Over Pentecost, a stiff breeze was blowing on the German coast, the sun was shining in southern Germany, and industrial demand was low, as it was a public holiday. more
