Munich, March 22, 2018: Intersolar Europe 2018 is already sending out positive market signals. The exhibition space is already fully booked three months before the start of the event, which is a clear reflection of the growth in photovoltaics (PV) being reported globally. With worldwide PV deployment of around 110 gigawatts expected this year alone, there is a sunny outlook around the globe. From June 20-22, 2018 in Munich, the world's leading exhibition for the solar industry will examine what the future of the PV market could hold and which areas still hold untapped potential.
Thanks to the boom in the PV market over the last 12 months, Intersolar Europe 2018 is looking forward to welcoming, alongside its established exhibitors, a much greater number of new exhibitors working across all areas of the PV industry - from maintenance and operation to cell production. Cutting-edge, decentralized energy technologies are key areas of focus for these companies. The industry is transitioning to a new energy world, in which networks, digitalization and decentralization will play a central role - and technology will no longer be considered in isolation, but rather as part of a bigger system.
The positive market developments have prompted exhibitors not only to book their spots at Intersolar Europe 2018 early, but to increase their exhibition space at the event as well. However, this is not the only indicator of the solar industry's ongoing growth. The changes taking place in the market are also reflected in the format of the exhibition itself. As well as the established storage exhibition ees Europe, Intersolar Europe is for the first time being held alongside two additional energy exhibitions under the new umbrella brand The smarter E Europe. From 2018, Power2Drive Europe and EM-Power will highlight the topics of e-mobility and intelligent energy use in industry and buildings. Thanks to this new, comprehensive exhibition concept and the favorable climate in the PV market, the Munich-based event is shaping up to be even more successful than ever before. In fact, this global meeting point for the solar industry is set to welcome 1,200 exhibitors over an exhibition space of 86,000 sqm. With visitors and exhibitors from 150 countries, Intersolar Europe is the industry's most international event and offers an ideal platform for connecting with people from around the globe. "The speed with which Intersolar Europe became fully booked this year also confirms our assessment of the market. We are looking forward to participating in the event again in 2018 and meeting both long-standing and new contacts," says Carsten Körnig, CEO of the German Solar Association.
