Energy Storage Europe 2017: Focus on large-scale solutions
The trade visitor share is again set to be approximately 99 percent. Parallel to the trade fair Energy Storage Europe Expo, at which storage solutions for residential buildings will also be presented, the specialist conferences International Renewable Energy Storage Conference (IRES 2017) and the Energy Storage Conference (ESE) as well as further side events will take place.
Focus on dealmaking
According to the organizers Energy Storage Europe relies on its international contacts to the energy sector and industry in order to reach a high share of visitors with decision-making competence and investment interest: “In contrast to other trade fairs with the focal point on storage, we put the focus on dealmaking. Our exhibitors benefit in particular from the quality of the specific business contacts and the concrete business deals. Through targeted communication in our worldwide network, we are strengthening this advantage“, explains Hans Werner Reinhard, Managing Director of Messe Düsseldorf.
Broad global network
The global network of the World of Energy Storage and its 72 international representatives in 132 countries contribute to the high level of trade visitors. The five satellites are developing almost as fast as the central event in Europe, which in the previous year, grew by 60 percent “The Energy Storage spin-offs outside of Europe have reached an average growth of 55 percent This lays the necessary foundation to bring international visitors to Düsseldorf “, according to Reinhard.
3,000 visitors in 2016
Energy Storage Europe 2017 is the trade fair with the world’s largest conference programme on energy storage, Reinhard says. The focal points are economy and finance (ESE) as well as science and social policy (IRES). At the same time, the side events, the 6th OTTI-Conference Power-to-Gas and the 11th Storage Day, will take place on the exhibition grounds in Düsseldorf. Compared to the previous year, Energy Storage Europe 2016 grew by 60 per cent to more than 3,000 visitors from 54 countries. Around 140 exhibitors presented themselves. A further growth of more than 25 per cent is expected for 2017. (HCN)
