Exhibitors from all over the world are set to present their innovations over 66,000 sqm of exhibition space from June 22–24, 2016.
Munich, April 15, 2016 - Two months before the exhibition opens, Intersolar Europe is sending the market positive signals: The exhibition space at the world's leading exhibition for the solar industry and its partners has been fully booked. And the same is true for ees Europe, Europe's largest exhibition for batteries and energy storage systems. Exhibitors from all over the world are set to present their innovations over 66,000 sqm of exhibition space from June 22-24, 2016. The widespread interest in the event demonstrates the importance of Munich and Europe for the international solar industry - as has been the case for a quarter of a century. Intersolar Europe celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2016.
From June 22-24, 2016, all eyes in the solar industry will once again be on Munich: Intersolar and ees Europe are expecting 40,000 visitors from 165 countries this year. For 25 years, the Intersolar Europe has been shaping the industry and providing fresh impetus for the development of a future-oriented energy supply. The event organizers recognized the particular importance of energy storage and established ees Europe two years ago. Taking place parallel to Intersolar, ees Europe has created a prominent and successful international platform for batteries and innovative energy storage systems. This year, a total of 380 exhibitors will be displaying their products, services and solutions in this area - 200 of these at ees Europe alone. The event has thus established itself as a leading exhibition with strong international participation in a remarkably short period of time. Even after the great success of last year, ees Europe is recording substantial growth again this year, reflected by the exhibition space, which has expanded by more than 40% to over 12,000 sqm.
Smart renewable energy: The modern energy supply
Photovoltaics are experiencing a worldwide boom. According to the market research institute GTM Research, the global photovoltaic market volume reached a total of 257 gigawatts (GW) in 2015 - an increase of one-third compared with the previous year. Researchers predict a further 64 GW will be added in 2016, to reach a total of 321 GW. For this reason, it is becoming increasingly important to use and manage solar energy effectively - in your own home, in your neighborhood, in industry and in the power grid. The key words here are smart home, smart building, smart cities and smart grid. The aim: to use modern storage technologies to find smart solutions for controlling generation and consumption between various producers and consumers in the power grid. This has led the organizers of Intersolar and ees Europe to look to the future and connect solar energy generation with other renewable sources of energy and electricity storage as part of smart renewable energy in the 2016 program. Every day, experts will be presenting innovations in this area at the newly established Smart Renewable Energy Forum. The topic also plays an important role at the Intersolar Conference.
Intersolar and ees Europe 2016 take place from June 22-24, 2016 at Messe München.

With events spanning four continents, Intersolar is the world's leading exhibition series for the solar industry and its partners. It unites people and companies from around the world with the aim of increasing the share of solar power in our energy supply.
Intersolar Europe is the world's leading exhibition for the solar industry and its partners. It takes place annually at the Messe München exhibition center in Munich, Germany and focuses on the areas of photovoltaics, energy storage and renewable heating, as well as on products and solutions for smart renewable energy. The accompanying Intersolar Europe Conference consolidates selected exhibition topics and showcases international markets, financing and pioneering technologies. Since being founded, Intersolar Europe has become the most important industry platform for manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, service providers and partners in the global solar industry.
With 25 years of experience, Intersolar has the unique ability to bring together members of the solar industry from across the world's most influential markets. Intersolar exhibitions and conferences are held in Munich, San Francisco, Mumbai, São Paulo and Dubai. These global events are complemented by the Intersolar Summits, which take place in emerging and growing solar markets worldwide.
In 2016, ees Europe, Europe's Largest Exhibition for Batteries and Energy Storage Systems, takes place in parallel to Intersolar Europe for the third time. Together with the accompanying ees Europe Conference, the exhibition covers the entire value chain of innovative battery and energy storage technologies.
