The energy supply is facing a change. Not least the events in Japan last year and Germany’s nuclear phase-out contribute to moving the energy turnaround into the near future.
The event will take place on 18 and 19 March 2013 in Düsseldorf.
At Energy Storage 2013, practical and economical storage technologies will be examined against the background of current energy industry developments.
China Energy Storage Alliance, India Energy Storage Alliance, California Energy Storage Alliance, IPVEA and Eurobat support storage event in Düsseldorf.
Berlin/Düsseldorf, 3 December 2012: The international associations China Energy Storage Alliance (CNESA), India Energy Storage Alliance (IESA), California Energy Storage Alliance (CESA), International Photovoltaic Equipment Association (IPVEA) and Association of European Automotive and Industrial Battery Manufacturers (Eurobat) are further strong partners for the Energy Storage – International Summit for the Storage of Renewable Energies conference fair. The event will take place on 18 and 19 March 2013 in Düsseldorf. At Energy Storage 2013, practical and economical storage technologies will be examined against the background of current energy industry developments. Political framework conditions will be discussed as well as the question of financing, economic efficiency and integration of the most important storage technologies.
With the new cooperations, Energy Storage is expanding its international orientation. The organizers Messe Düsseldorf and Solarpraxis AG are thus bringing even more nations together in Düsseldorf for professional exchange and the establishment of business contacts. The conference topics will benefit from the profound market knowledge of the international association representatives, who will participate in the session “Global Energy Storage Solutions”, among others. Some of the associations will also be represented with their own exhibition stands, so that there will be an opportunity for individual discussions.
Already at the premiere of the Energy Storage Summit in spring 2012 more than 350 conference guests from 29 countries participated. Other partners for next year’s event are EnergyAgency.NRW, the Centre for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research Baden-Württemberg (ZSW), the Bavarian Centre for Applied Energy Research e.V. (ZAE), the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems in Freiburg (ISE), the National Organization Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology (NOW), the Fraunhofer Energy, Germany Trade and Invest Alliance (GTAI) and the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Energy Conversion.
The Energy Storage conference fair brings together experts from science, industry and politics. Keynote speakers include Federal Environment Minister Peter Altmaier and Jeremy Rifkin, President of the Foundation of Economic Trends. The internationally renowned scientist Prof. Dr. Eicke R. Weber, spokesperson of the Fraunhofer Energy Alliance and head of Fraunhofer ISE in Freiburg, is chairman of the program committee and is supported in the program design by other renowned experts such as Dr. Klaus Bonhoff (NOW), Janice Lin (CESA), Dr. Jens Tübke (Fraunhofer Institute for Chemical Technology ICT).
In an accompanying trade exhibition, companies will present marketable applications and new concepts in the field of energy storage. Another new feature is the Production Technology Forum, which will take place on the afternoon of 18 March 2013. Here, current production technologies as well as possible applications, challenges and economic issues of battery production will be discussed.
