The combination of solar energy and electric vehicles enables new, pioneering use concepts for private households and companies alike. Even small photovoltaic (PV) systems with only three kilowatts peak provide enough power to drive an electric vehicle thousands of kilometers a year – without harming the environment.
The number of electric vehicles around the world rose to 5.6 million last year. The global market grew by 75 percent compared with 2017, and it will continue to accelerate. This is also reflected in the current market overview from the Power2Drive Europe exhibition.

A team of researchers from the National University of Singapore (NUS) has pioneered a new water-based air-conditioning system that cools air to as low as 18 degrees Celsius without the use of energy-intensive compressors and environmentally harmful chemical refrigerants. This technology could potentially replace the century-old air-cooling principle that is still being used today.
At this year's Energy Storage Europe Conference flexible sector coupling will become the focus topic: innovative mobility solutions with power-to-gas technologies, storage technologies for efficient charging infrastructures and cross-sector thermal storage solutions are exemplary keynote matters.
