Conference early bird rates available until January 31, 2017

The exhibitors at the upcoming Energy Storage Europe 2017 trade fair have booked 30% more exhibit space compared to the same period last year. The companies presenting their products and services from March 14 – 16, 2017 in Düsseldorf, Germany will include leading global providers such as Samsung, ads tec, Hoppecke, Yuasa, ABB, Siemens and GNB Industrial Power. Early bird rate tickets for the concurrently held Energy Storage Europe Conference (ESE) and the 11th International Renewable Energy Storage Conference (IRES 2017) organized by EUROSOLAR e.V., are still available until January 31, 2017.

“Our trade fair team has recorded more registrations from industrial and trade-related exhibitors for all storage technologies. Energy Storage Europe continues to rapidly expand its position as the leading B2B trade fair network for the world of energy storage”, stated Hans Werner Reinhard, Managing Director of Messe Düsseldorf. This year once again, the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy will list Energy Storage Europe as the leading international trade fair for energy storage.

In addition to battery storage technologies, thermal, mechanical and chemical storage devices will once again be presented this year as well as compressed-air storage devices and Power to X solutions. These technologies have other benefits than battery storage devices and have a decisive role in the future of energy change. “The importance of energy storage is growing enormously. Following the photovoltaic and energy storage segments, the wind energy and energy storage segments are now strongly pushing to the forefront of the energy market. In concrete terms, this means large energy projects that will involve a variety of sectors being connected with each other. This will also see the development and introduction of new technologies, other types of challenges and new framework conditions. Power-plant operators and industry, as well as power-generating companies and public utility companies should inform themselves in good time about the possibilities and gather the necessary experience,” explained Urban Windelen, Managing Director of The German Energy Storage Association (BVES). BVES is one of the initiators of Energy Storage Europe and will organize a joint stand for the member companies at this year’s trade fair.
