After experiencing very strong growth already in 2016, the organizers of Europe's largest exhibition for batteries and energy storage systems are expecting an even more successful event in 2017.

80% of the exhibition space for the Munich exhibition, which is being held from May 31st to June 2nd, 2017, has already been booked – despite the fact that the exhibition area is increasing by 40% to 17,500 sqm.

Parallel to the exhibition, visitors have the opportunity to learn about current developments in e-mobility and the storage industry at the ees Europe Conference, the ees Forum and the special exhibit E-Mobility & Renewable Energy.

The global energy storage market is booming and the German market is also showing strong momentum: The German Solar Association (BSW-Solar) is predicting that the total number of storage systems installed will reach 50,000 this year.

In 2016 alone, the number has increased by 15 to 20% as compared to the previous year.

Smart renewable energy, that is combining energy generation, storage, grid integration and energy management, is a key topic. Energy storage devices are the backbone of smart renewable energy, as they can absorb excess energy when it is not needed and make it available later. This topic will play an important role at ees Europe and at Intersolar Europe, which is taking place in parallel.

ees Europe 2017 takes place from May 31–June 2 at Messe Muenchen. Further information on ees Europe 2017 can be found at www.ees-europe.com.
