EES EUROPE CONFERENCE SHINES THE SPOTLIGHT ON THE ROLE OF INNOVATIVE STORAGE TECHNOLOGIES IN THE ENERGY MARKET

ees Europe, Europe's largest exhibition for batteries and energy storage systems, is once again being accompanied by the ees Europe Conference from June 21–22, 2016.

Munich, March 17, 2016 - ees Europe, Europe's largest exhibition for batteries and energy storage systems, is once again being accompanied by the ees Europe Conference from June 21-22, 2016. The presentations held by panels of experts at ICM - Internationales Congress Center München enable visitors to discover the latest technological developments in the field of storage devices and storage management as well as how to use storage systems economically. Meanwhile, the Intersolar Europe Conference, which runs alongside the event, gives attendees the opportunity to network with representatives of other business sectors and discuss recent changes in the energy industry. Between March 15 and April 15, visitors to the ees Europe Conference can enjoy a 25% discount on the entrance fee to mark the 25th anniversary of Intersolar Europe.


From the use of energy management systems to integrate renewable energy into smart buildings, to commercial enterprises that utilize solar energy generated on site, this year's ees Europe Conference, held at ICM - Internationales Congress Center München from June 21-22, discusses how state-of-the-art storage technology is helping to make the energy industry more decentralized and flexible. Following on from the tremendous success of the inaugural event last year, the ees Europe Conference is being held for the second time immediately before and during ees Europe (June 22-24). ees Europe is the continent's largest exhibition for batteries and energy storage systems, and takes place in parallel with Intersolar Europe, the world's leading exhibition for the solar industry and its partners. The storage systems topic is growing in importance this year, as is reflected by the increase in exhibition space dedicated to it from 9,000 square meters last year to 12,000 square meters at ees Europe 2016. This represents growth of more than 30%.

At the conference, experts, project developers and industry insiders discuss the latest developments, innovations and challenges, ranging from political conditions and financing to new technical accomplishments. The event's links with the ees Europe and Intersolar Europe exhibitions enable visitors to engage in cross-industry discussions. The conference covers the most important industry topics across seven presentations and a panel discussion.

Latest developments in the design and systems technology of lead and lithium-ion batteries
During a presentation entitled Policies, Markets and Emerging Opportunities held at 10:15am on June 21, experts examine the regulatory framework for electricity storage systems and discuss the role played by renewable energy in the introduction of storage concepts in various markets.

Improvements in the cell design and systems technology of lead and lithium-ion batteries are essential for the continued growth of the market. Presentations during the Battery Technologies: Evolutionary Improvements and Revolutionary Concepts session at 11:45am on June 21 explore new developments and their opportunities on the market.

The falling cost of battery systems is making them more and more attractive to private owners of photovoltaic installations. At the same time, private consumers, as so-called prosumers, are increasingly shaping the energy market as it becomes progressively more decentralized. The presentations held during the Residential Storage Systems and Integration into Smart Home Concepts session at 2:30pm on the first day of the conference demonstrate how storage devices and solar installations can be integrated into smart homes using intelligent energy managers.

At 4:30pm on June 21, the Commercial PV Battery Systems: Self Consumption and Beyond session turns the attention from residential to commercial systems. It shows how commercial enterprises can optimize their self consumption and curb peak load demand. Furthermore, during the session experts provide examples of how electricity storage systems can support grid stability.

Two sessions are dedicated to experiences with large-scale storage systems during the provision of electricity grid services as well as to the safe operation of these systems. The presentations on these topics are held on the second day of the conference during sessions entitled Insights and Experiences with Large-Scale Applications at 9:05am and Safety and Reliability: Key Issues for Large-Scale Market Penetration from 11:00am. During these sessions, conference attendees can discover how solar and wind energy parks can be combined with storage systems, what to look out for when using battery farms, and the latest applicable safety standards.

By establishing a battery's charge status or monitoring charging and discharging processes, for example, battery management solutions are indispensable for the effective, safe and reliable use of storage systems. The Technology Focus 2016: Advancements in Battery Management Solutions session held from 2:00pm on June 22 enables visitors to discover innovations for improving output and lowering costs during the operation of batteries.

The ees Europe Conference panel discussion taking place from 4:00pm on the second day of the conference focuses on the financing of large-scale energy storage projects.
