As we move towards decarbonization and cross-sector solutions, the worlds of photovoltaics, storage, e-mobility and heat supply are becoming increasingly intertwined. This enables solar power to be used in a cost-effective and climate-friendly way, while also increasing the resilience of the energy system and improving supply security.
The combination of efficient, versatile and modular components is proving very popular in this context, ranging from smart EV-chargers to energy management systems, heat pumps and scalable battery storage systems.
While private households are increasingly using a combination of photovoltaic installations, storage systems and EV-chargers, thus making a step towards becoming prosumers and running integrated heating systems with a heat pump, new business models are emerging for companies.
This includes, for example, operating commercial charging infrastructure and using second-life EV batteries for battery storage solutions. The diverse range of necessary components is leading to an increase in demand within the electrical trade, as electrical installers are opening doors to these new trends.
At The smarter E Europe, Europe’s largest alliance of exhibitions for the energy industry, visitors have the opportunity to experience first hand all the products, solutions and services relating to a renewable, decentralized, digital and reliable energy supply, as well as gain comprehensive information and talk to experts face to face.
