The German Solar Energy Society (DGS) then welcomed participants with a niche topic of great interest to private consumers – a draft standard to ensure the usability of plug-in solar devices – also called "balcony power plants". Afterwards, the DGS invited to a panel discussion on the topic "Transformation of energy supply". The conclusion of the forum was dedicated to the future topic "Smart Combined; solar, storage and e-mobility". Here, renowned manufacturers presented integrative solutions for a self-sufficient energy supply with these three variables.
