ENERGY STORAGE EUROPE 2015: LARGEST GATHERING IN INDUSTRY BRINGS TOGETHER FIVE CONFRENCES AND ONE EXHIBITION

The event, which will take place from March 9 - 11, 2015, in Düsseldorf, Germany

For the first time in its history, the 2015 Energy Storage Europe event will bring together five international energy-related conferences and one exhibition under one roof. The event, which will take place from March 9 - 11, 2015, in Düsseldorf, Germany, will combine Energy Storage Europe, the 9th International Renewable Energy Storage Conference (IRES 2015), the 2nd VDE Financial Dialogue Europe 2015, the 4th OTTI Power-to-Gas Conference, and the German Solar Alliance's 6th Storage Day. Together, these annual conferences will cover the widest topical range in the international energy storage market.


This landmark event is organized by Messe Düsseldorf in cooperation with EUROSOLAR/Weltrat, WCRE, the Institute of the Association for Electrical, Electronic and Information Technologies (VDE), OTTI e.V., and the Solar Alliance. Hans Werner Reinhard, Managing Director of Messe Düsseldorf, outlines the focus of the conference: "Energy Storage Europe will provide attendees with three full days of learning, networking and deal-making. Each conference will feature the latest news, policymaking and innovations from business and technology. Networking will be well facilitated, with all five events sharing the same break times and common meeting areas, while our Networking Dinner Party will offer ample opportunities for further engagement with potential customers and partners. Further, more than 100 businesses, institutions and media companies will have exhibits on the show floor. Such a format is a new approach for this international event – and one that's designed with business in mind."

While IRES will focus on more scientific topics, Energy Storage Europe will cover business-related and technological aspects. As part of this, the conference will provide an in-depth look at outstanding storage projects and explore their technical and economic aspects. Financial Dialogue Europe will deal with the financing and bankability of storage solutions, while Storage Day has a special emphasis on tradespeople and technicians who work with storage solutions.

"Many visitors will be attracted by the opportunity to catch up on the technical, economic and political state of affairs by participating in discussions on the storage market at all levels. This is the first time that this is possible in one location over a few days," said Prof. Dr. Eicke R. Weber, Chairman of Energy Storage Europe's program committee, President of the German Energy Storage Association (BVES), spokesman for the Fraunhofer Energy Alliance, and Head of the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems (ISE).

Last year's Energy Storage Europe event was attended by more than 850 industry professionals from 40 countries. The 2015 conference and exhibition, combining five events under one roof, is expected to welcome more than 1,500 international visitors and about 100 exhibitors.

Registration is open at www.ESEexpo.de/2130. Attendees who register before the end of January 2015 will benefit from attractive discounts. The preliminary program is available at http://tinyurl.com/ES2015 (PDF).
