ees Europe
ees Europe is the continent's largest and most international exhibition for batteries and energy storage systems. The annual event has been taking place at Messe München under the motto "Innovating energy storage" since 2014 and brings together manufacturers, distributors, users, suppliers and start-ups in the field of stationary storage solutions and technologies for electrical energy as well as battery production technologies.

The accompanying ees Europe Conference highlights and consolidates current industry issues. ees events are also held in Dubai, Mumbai and São Paulo.

Power2Drive Europe, the international exhibition for charging infrastructure and e-mobility, will take place in parallel to ees Europe in 2021. With its focus on solutions and technologies for clean transportation, Power2Drive complements ees Europe perfectly. Intersolar Europe, the world's leading exhibition for the solar industry, and EM-Power Europe, the international exhibition for energy management and integrated energy solutions, also take place at the same time. All four exhibitions are held as part of The smarter E Europe - the innovation hub for new energy solutions.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
