Munich, March 22, 2016 - The accompanying program for ees Europe, the continent's largest exhibition for batteries and energy storage systems, offers visitors numerous opportunities to engage in discussion with industry experts and to find out about new products, services and solutions for innovative storage technologies. The ees Forum features presentations on the topics of storage practices and e-mobility and renewable energies. In the Smart Renewable Energy Forum, interested visitors can find out everything they need to know about the devices and communication technologies for the grid integration of photovoltaics and wind power. From June 22-24, 2016, exhibitors and visitors to Messe München are invited to network and discuss the latest market trends.

Safe, clean and above all smart - this is what the energy supply and mobility of the future should look like. Electricity storage systems are a key component of this vision. For example, as part of the smart grid, PV home storage systems optimize system and supply reliability by ensuring a balance between power production and consumption, thereby reducing the need for grid expansion. The market for PV storage systems is booming. EuPD Research forecasts that by 2020, the market will have increased fourfold to nearly 900 million euros annually. In this context, e-mobility is also becoming increasingly important, because as mobile storage devices, electric vehicles have an important role to play in the power supply of the future. At the summit on e-mobility in early February of this year, the German government once again confirmed its commitment to fuel-free driving, standing by its goal of putting a million electric cars on German roads by 2020. Visitors to ees Europe, the international exhibition for batteries and energy storage systems, can learn about current market developments and industry trends. Approximately 200 exhibitors will be represented from June 22-24 at ees Europe in Munich, which is once again taking place in parallel to Intersolar Europe, the world's leading exhibition for the solar industry and its partners. Visitors can expect a comprehensive accompanying program that will highlight new technologies and international market developments as well as the technical challenges facing the industry.

ees Forum - Experts under the spotlight
Presentations and panel discussions will fuel conversations among experts at the ees Forum, which focuses on ees exhibitor innovations, combining renewable energy and e-mobility as well as the topic of storage practices. The program also features a session exploring second life batteries and battery recycling. One of the highlights on June 22, 2016 is the presentation of the ees AWARD finalists beginning at 10:30am. Each year, the organizers present the award in recognition of outstanding innovations in energy storage technology. The winners will be announced at the subsequent award ceremony, which begins at 4:30pm in the Innovation and Application Forum at Intersolar Europe. The ees Forum is co-organized by the International Battery and Energy Storage Alliance (IBESA) and sponsored by Pylon Technologies Co., Ltd. and Ingeteam Power Technology, S.A.

Special exhibit E-Mobility & Renewable Energy - Highlighting smart solutions
There are many potential synergies between renewable energy and e-mobility - such as using electric cars as storage devices for solar power. This and other clever solutions will be presented at the special exhibit E-Mobility & Renewable Energy. In hall B1, participants will showcase new vehicle concepts and innovative charging technologies.

ees Europe Conference - Hot topics in the industry
Before ees Europe gets underway, the accompanying conference kicks off at the Internationales Congress Center München. From June 21-22, experts, project developers and industry insiders will gather at the ees Europe Conference to discuss current developments in innovative storage technologies. The program comprises eight sessions which explore the latest innovations and challenges in the industry, ranging from political conditions and financing to new technical accomplishments. The cross-industry discussions at the conference consolidate the topics covered at the ees Europe and Intersolar Europe exhibitions.

ees Europe 2016 takes place alongside Intersolar Europe at Messe München from June 22-24, 2016.

About ees
The global ees exhibition series is the industry meeting point, bringing together manufacturers, distributors, users and suppliers of stationary and mobile electricity storage systems. The ees exhibitions are co-organized with Intersolar, the leading exhibition series for the solar industry.
The ees exhibitions and accompanying ees Conferences are dedicated to renewable energy storage solutions, from residential and commercial applications to large-scale storage systems for stabilizing the grid. Other focal points are products and solutions for smart renewable energy, energy management, e-mobility and uninterruptible power supply (UPS).

With ees Europe in Munich, ees North America in San Francisco and ees India in Mumbai, ees is represented on three continents. ees Europe is the continent's largest exhibition with the greatest number of visitors for the battery and energy storage industry. More than 158 exhibitors took part in ees Europe 2015 (326 companies together with energy storage exhibitors at Intersolar Europe) and approx. 38,000 visitors from 165 countries flocked to Munich.

Partners of ees Europe
ZVEI (German Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers' Association), EUROBAT (the Association of European Automotive and Industrial Battery Manufacturers), Naatbatt (the National Alliance for Advanced Technology Batteries), and BSW-Solar (German Solar Association).
