The four conferences of The smarter E Europe, the innovation hub for empowering new energy solutions, offer an insight into the energy future as well as information about current technological trends and business models. They include the Smart Renewable Systems Conference, Intersolar Europe Conference, ees Europe Conference and Power2Drive Europe Conference. On May 14 and 15, attendees can gain access to all four events in Munich with just a single ticket. The conferences cover aspects of tomorrow’s decentralized, digital and renewable energy supply and bring together the most important stakeholders in the energy industry.
Renewable energies already play a major role in the supply system today. From generation and storage to distribution and usage, in the future every step in the entire energy supply chain needs to seamlessly merge together to operate and interact intelligently. And the renewable energy market keeps on growing. This is due to falling costs and new scopes of application as well as new business models and stakeholders entering the market. The energy industry is changing, becoming increasingly decentralized, digitalized and environmentally friendly.
The road to this new energy world and the rules of the game are explained by leading experts from the clean energy industry at four conferences.
Intelligent energy systems in the spotlight
At the Smart Renewable Systems Conference, the spotlight is turned on intelligent energy systems, from virtual power plants and microgrids to smart markets. Digital technologies and new business models are transforming the relationship between energy producers and consumers. Experts at the conference are set to examine what the energy market of the future will look like, among other topics. On the first day of the event, they will present examples and trends, such as how private, commercial and industry customers can optimize local resources. The second day has presentations in store to share expertise on developments and business opportunities for linking decentralized energy resources with the power grid.
Photovoltaics from every angle
The focus will be on markets, technologies and financing for PV projects at the Intersolar Europe Conference. As well as market development in Europe, this year experts will particularly be shining a light on markets in Africa and in the MENA region (Middle East and North Africa). The International Energy Agency (IEA), for example, is organizing a workshop on the performance and operational reliability of PV, as well as PV systems operations and maintenance. Further sessions will cover the interaction of PV and storage. Participants will also discover valuable information about new applications of solar installations, in façades, on agricultural land and on water.
Everything there is to know about energy storage
The ees Europe Conference offers orientation on battery systems and stationary energy storage systems – covering markets, financing, business models, production technologies and safety aspects. In the “Compare and Contrast” series, for example, experts will introduce energy storage projects and their most important data in short presentations, so they can be directly compared. Further details and practical tips will be provided in the follow-up discussion.
What’s needed for sustainable mobility
Electric vehicles powered by solar or wind are the key to developing a new, climate-friendly and sustainable model of mobility worldwide. Most importantly, e-mobility needs a well-developed, comprehensive charging infrastructure in order to prevail. Power2drive Europe Conference provides answers as to how this infrastructure is developing globally and where promising markets can be found. Further topics include successful business and billing models and legal frameworks.
