The smarter E Europe 2022: Start-ups and Young Companies Take Center Stage

Press release – Thursday, January 20, 2022

Munich/Pforzheim, January 20, 2022. At Europe’s largest platform for the energy industry, The smarter E Europe, start-ups will present their solutions in the Start-up Area in hall B5, meet national and international decision makers of the industry and forge new business relationships. The innovation hub for new energy solutions will open its doors from May 11–13, 2022, in Munich, including the energy exhibitions Intersolar Europe, ees Europe, Power2Drive Europe and EM-Power Europe. Start-ups and young, innovative companies can apply now.

The smarter E Europe covers the full range of energy industry topics. Each of the four energy exhibitions has a distinct professional focus, and by organizing all of them at the same time, the links between products and topics – which are so crucial for the energy sector – are mapped. The innovation hub for new energy solutions gives start-ups and young companies all-in-one access to the relevant companies, players and decision makers who shape the energy world, and therefore ample opportunities to meet new customers and connect with valuable new contacts.

For start-ups there are two attractive offers: the Rising Star Package and the Newcomer Package. Cost of participation starts at €840. You can find detailed information here:

Additionally, the joint booth “Innovation made in Germany” is on offer for young companies. Participation is subsidized by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK) who will cover 60 percent of the booth rental fee at the first two events and 50 percent from the third participation up to a total cost of €7,500 euros per exhibitor and exhibition.

Young companies present innovation
At The smarter E Europe, start-ups benefit from a Marketing Package, which includes a press release, a job posting free of charge, banners and a customizable exhibition profile. What’s more, they can apply for a ten-minute long presentation on the start-up stage to present their company and innovative solutions for the new energy world. Start-ups put their innovative power to the test to go head-to-head for The smarter E AWARD, the Intersolar AWARD and the ees AWARD. These awards honor the innovative products and projects of future-oriented companies that play a key role in the success of the new energy world. There is no participation fee for start-ups and you can apply until February 28, 2022. Further information is available at:

EM-Power Europe 2022: A Stable Power Supply With Grid-Stabilizing Inverters

April 20, 2022

Large-scale fossil-fueled power stations and nuclear power plants have been stabilizing the power grid until now but the energy transition is going to change that. The last nuclear reactors in Germany are due to be shut down by the end of 2022. And the plan is to phase out coal altogether by 2030. Before the war in Ukraine, gas-fired power plants were pegged as a transition technology. But now there is no choice but to rethink that strategy.
