From June 19th – 21st, 2013, the international solar industry will once again shine its spotlight on the Munich Trade Fair (Germany). Visitors from all over the world can expect the solar industry's latest trends and products at the world's largest exhibition for the solar industry, Intersolar Europe.

The PV ENERGY WORLD presentation program focuses on the combination of photovoltaics and energy storage systems, from on-site consumption of solar power and grid integration to the introduction of new energy concepts. The Rural Electrification special exhibit sheds light on international trends in off-grid regions, while the Joint Forces for Solar Intelligence and Networking Forum provides the perfect opportunity for players from industry and trade to share experiences.


1,500 exhibitors in 12 halls

Under the motto “Connecting Solar Business”, visitors can find out about recent trends and developments across the solar industry from manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, service providers and partners working in this sector. In 2013, around 1,500 exhibitors are showcasing their products and services in the fields of photovoltaics, PV production technology, energy storage systems and solar thermal technology.

Exhibiting companies can benefit from 121,000 square meters of exhibition space in 12 halls and a large outdoor area. Over 60,000 industry professionals from 160 countries are expected.


Pioneering products at the Innovation Exchange, Intersolar Award

At the Innovation Exchange in hall B2, booth B2.450, exhibitors showcase their innovations during 15-minute presentations in the fields of PV and energy storage systems, substructures for commercial roofs as well as new inverter functions. The Intersolar AWARD ceremony is a particular highlight this year, taking place on June 19th, 2013 from 4:30pm at the Innovation Exchange.

The AWARD is presented to international companies that have demonstrated their innovative strength with outstanding services and products. An independent jury comprising experts from science, industry, research and the trade media select up to three winners in the fields of Photovoltaics and Solar Thermal Technologies, as well as Solar Projects in Europe, which is making its first appearance this year. The renowned solar prize is awarded by Intersolar Europe in cooperation with the Berlin-based German Solar Industry Association (BSW-Solar).


Energy storage systems, on-site consumption and grid integration in hall B5

The Energy Storage Systems product group alone has received 170 exhibitors registrations. Most of the exhibitors can be found in hall B5, right next to the exhibition area for inverter manufacturers and to PV ENERGY WORLD. The latest challenges facing the change to a new energy supply system form the main focus here. Expert presentations cover topics such as on-site consumption of solar power generated on the premises, grid integration and storage solutions for private households, industrial and commercial buildings, accompanied by discussions about municipal energy concepts and models of energy cooperatives.


Rural electrification, special workshops and exhibition tours

BSW-Solar is once again organizing the Rural Electrification special exhibit at Intersolar Europe, where 13 companies showcase their products and services in the field of off-grid power supply in hall B5, booth B5.170. Exhibiting companies offer their experience of supplying electricity to off-grid regions in Africa, Asia and Latin America.

This year, visitors can also gain practical insights during three special workshops focused on Photovoltaics on Industrial and Commercial Roofs - Practical Aspects, Financing and Building Regulations, Tips and Tricks for Installing Electricity Storage Systems and Solar Process Heat for Breweries. What's more, various exhibition tours help visitors to get to grips with the exhibition topics of PV on Industry and Commercial Buildings, Energy Storage Systems and Solar Thermal Technologies – Process Heat.

This year, PV manufacturers from installation companies will meet again to debate current and future industry trends at the fifth PV Briefing & Networking Forum Europe, supported by the Bonn-based market research company, EuPD Research.


Markets, trends and new technologies at the Intersolar Europe Conference 2013

The Intersolar Europe Conference is once again taking place alongside Intersolar Europe from June 17th – 20th, 2013. In total, 2,000 attendees and around 400 speakers from all over the world are meeting at the International Congress Centre Munich (ICM).

The highlights of this year's conference include the latest electricity storage technologies, power grid stability, new markets in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA region), new business models for the PV industry, large-scale PV power plants and new cell and concentrator designs for PV production. Solar thermal technologies form the focus in topics including international market development, the latest trends and developments in heat storage, industrial process heat and large-scale solar thermal plants.
