Intersolar Europe 2018: Becoming part of "The smarter E"
The innovative power of the solar industry, as well as endeavors to advance the energy transition, are clearly unabated. This is also reflected by the interest shown in Intersolar Europe 2018, the world’s leading exhibition for the solar industry.
Intersolar Europe will take place under the new umbrella of The smarter E for the first time in 2018 along with other leading energy exhibitions. More than 80 per cent of the exhibition space has already been booked eight months before the start of the exhibition. Photovoltaics is the driver for all renewable energies. This is the conclusion drawn in a new report published by the International Energy Agency (IEA), according to which the global expansion of photovoltaics over the last year outstripped all other sources of energy generation.
The continuing boom is also opening up new sales markets, driving the market further and making it more dynamic. E-mobility, for example, is helping the energy transition to gather pace in the transportation sector – excess electricity from PV installations can be used to power charging stations and run electric cars. So the growth in e-mobility also benefits PV companies by opening up new business models for them, such as building charging stations.
Development thus far has shown that the new energy world is diverse – and complex. This makes it all the more important to present renewable and intelligent energy solutions linking all sectors, with a practical and future-oriented focus. And that’s the role of The smarter E, the new umbrella brand which is now the home of Intersolar and ees Europe as well as the new exhibitions EM-Power and Power2Drive. The smarter E is a unique platform for discussing innovative ideas with experts and sharing them with an interested, knowledgeable audience.
