Over the past three years, the visitor numbers of the trade fair and conference Energy Storage Europe grew by an average of 54 per cent to most recently more than 4,200 industry representatives. During the same period, the number of exhibitors increased to a total of 160. After this year's move from the congress center into its own exhibition hall, Messe Düsseldorf expects further growth. The high share of trade visitors (99.8 percent) and the world's most comprehensive conference programme will ensure the continuation of this success story. Energy Storage Europe 2018 will take place in Düsseldorf from March 13th to 15th.
All energy storage technologies under one roof
As always, Energy Storage Europe will concentrate on energy storage of all technologies, from electric, electrochemical to thermal right up to chemical and mechanical storage. Thereby, special emphasis is given to flexible sector coupling. "Energy Storage Europe has positioned itself as the top exhibition in the field by presenting all worldwide storage technologies in one place. This diversity and the existing industry network of Messe Düsseldorf create a market place, which effectively links together technologies, applications, suppliers and users", says Hans Werner Reinhard, Managing Director of Messe Düsseldorf.
With sector coupling to the energy system of the future
As an overarching industry get-together, Energy Storage Europe also interlinks science and economy. "The industry has reached maturity. Now it is all about the concrete expansion of the capacities and the comprehensive integration of various storage technologies into complex energy systems. A particularly dynamic development is currently taking place in the area of sector coupling. The combination of electricity and mobility can only be achieved through a storage-supported charging infrastructure", added Urban Windelen, Managing Director of the German Energy Storage Association. This challenge will also be reflected in the conference programme of Energy Storage Europe 2018.
Focus on international markets
International markets traditionally belong to the focal points of the Energy Storage Europe Conference. Also in the upcoming year, the presentations will again deal with the legal as well as the technical framework conditions in the most important regions. The high acceptance of Energy Storage Europe can also be determined by the numerous participants from all across the world. In 2017, visitors came from all five continents to Düsseldorf. A total of 64 nations were represented. Companies preparing their access to the market or partnerships in other countries such as the USA, China, India and Japan, encounter decision makers and organisers of the global Energy Storage Network in Düsseldorf. This is underlined by the high trade visitor share of 98.9 percent.
