MUNICH - Wednesday, May 11th 2016 [ME NewsWire]
(BUSINESS WIRE)-- ees Europe, Europe's largest exhibition for batteries and energy storage systems, sends a positive signal to the market: The exhibition space was already booked up by 200 exhibitors two months before the start of the exhibition– a sure sign of the development in the worldwide energy storage market which is driving the global energy revolution. ees Europe will be held once again in Munich from 22 to 24 June 2016 together with Intersolar Europe the world’s leading exhibition for the solar industry and its partners. Visitors can expect over 1,000 exhibitors all together at both events, 380 of which will be showing innovative products, services and solutions for energy storage systems.
Safe, clean – and above all, smart: This is what the energy supply of the future will be all about. And storage batteries will be the key components, since: In smart grids, large storage systems decouple production from consumption, thereby ensuring that clean energy is available at all times. Also for private use, for example, home photovoltaic storage enhances the system and supply security. A study carried out by Prognos AG on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy has recently shown that smart solar storage batteries also reduce the need for grid expansion. In Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg alone, costs were reduced by over EUR 100 million per year. It is not surprising that Europe’s photovoltaic storage system market is booming. EuPD Research forecasts that the market will grow fourfold by 2020 to around EUR 900 million per year. Germany is leading these developments with a current market share of around 90 percent. According to estimates by the German Solar Association (BSW-Solar), around 35,000 solar storage systems have been installed in Germany alone. Electric vehicles will also play an important role in energy supply in future. These vehicles not only implement the vision of low-emission driving, but, as mobile storage carriers, can also serve as a buffer for peaks in energy supply and consumption.
ees Europe – a success story
For two years already, the Intersolar Europe exhibition organizers have been placing particular emphasis on energy storage, and have set up a successful international platform for batteries and innovative energy storage systems with the ees Europe exhibition that takes place in parallel. In a short space of time, the event has established itself as a leading exhibition. Following last year’s huge success – the number of exhibitors has tripled in comparison to the previous year – ees Europe has shown remarkable growth this year again. The exhibition space has grown by more than 40 percent to over 12,000 m².
