Exhibition: May 31–June 2, 2017
Conference: May 30–31, 2017
ees Europe will take place May 31– June 2, 2017 in Munich, Germany. It is Europe’s largest exhibition for batteries and energy storage systems and the industry hotspot for suppliers, manufacturers, distributors and users of stationary and mobile electrical energy storage solutions. Key players of the industry present battery innovations along the whole value chain and smart renewable energy solutions like energy storage communities or electric cars on the grid. The exhibition and conference both focus on renewable energy storage, from residential and commercial applications to large-scale storage systems for stabilizing the grid. The spotlight is also shined on topics like energy management, electric transportation and intelligent systems integration. Charging the Future!
Network with 250 exhibitors and 40,000+ visitors from 160 countries and take advantage from the parallel event Intersolar Europe, the world's leading exhibition for the solar industry, taking place at the same time. One ticket gives you access to two leading trade fairs! But this is not all. The ees Europe boasts an extensive accompanying program: Among this year’s highlights are the special exhibit E-Mobility & Renewable Energy, the ees Forum with expert presentations spanning all three exhibition days, and the ees AWARD ceremony on Wednesday, 5pm in hall A4. Discover products and solutions for the connected energy world at the Smart Renewable Energy special exhibit: Renewable Energy, Grid Integration, Energy Storage, Smart Energy Consumption and Energy Management. More than just a battery show: our vision is renewable energy supply and eco-friendly transportation worldwide. Be part of it!
The ees (electrical energy storage) Europe Conference will take place at Munich International Congress Center from May 30–31, 2017 in the run-up to the trade fair. It will feature 200 expert speakers,12 battery and energy storage sessions, a side event on battery safety and networking events in an inviting atmosphere. Discussions featured at the event are known for delving into the hottest energy storage trends of the day, including global battery market development, real life projects large-scale energy storage and the role of smart renewable energy, i.e. combining energy generation, energy storage and energy management, and integrating electric vehicles into the renewable energy system of the future. This year, the topics in the spotlight will include automotive battery technology, vehicle integration, charging technologies, vehicle-to-grid and non-battery storage technologies such as power-to-gas, ultracapacitors and flywheels.
Batteries have established themselves as key technologies for the energy and transport transitions. Combining energy storage with renewable power generation, energy management and e-mobility – known as sector coupling – is gaining in importance as demand for electric vehicles grows. This is prompting more and more automotive manufactures to offer e-models with increasingly powerful batteries and solutions for integrating mobile storage devices. Renewable energies and e-mobility are an optimal combination. For this reason, the topic of e-mobility is receiving increasing attention from exhibitors, visitors and the accompanying program at the ees Europe in Munich, Europe's largest exhibition for batteries and energy storage systems.
Are you a buyer for batteries and charging systems, a battery systems integrator, a battery developer, a CO2 representative at an OEM or an automotive supplier? Do you work in business development or as a project developer for e-mobility and charging infrastructure, in fleet management or for energy suppliers and municipal utilities? Are you searching for environmentally-friendly mobility concepts?
Energy storage systems are one of the essential pillars of the renewable energy mix of the future, safeguarding supplies to drive the energy transition. The ees AWARD pays tribute to pioneering products and solutions for stationary and mobile electrical energy storage systems. The range of innovations encompasses the entire value-added chain of innovative battery and energy storage technologies – from components to production to concrete applications and business models.
Introduced in 2014, the ees AWARD is presented each year by the organizers of ees in cooperation with international industry associations. Companies benefit from the huge international media attention and high interest in the ees AWARD.
The ees AWARD finalists 2017 now have been selected. The Finalists for the ees AWARD 2017 are: BYD Co. Ltd, Energy Depot Deutschland GmbH, IRIS Energy GmbH, KOSTAL Industrie Elektrik GmbH, LG Chem, NIDEC ASI, Skeleton Technologies GmbH, SolarEdge Technologies, SOLARWATT GmbH. Congratulations to the nominated companies
The winners are going to be announced in the official AWARD ceremony on May 31, 5 pm at the ees Europe in Munich, hall A4, booth A4.530.
