Start Intersolar 2014, The World’s largest solar fairadmin
From today, the international solar sector meets in Munich (germany) to celebrate the Intersolar Europe Conference, where world experts will discuss the trends, markets and technologies of the solar Industry. Around 300 speakers and 2,000 attendees will participate until June 4 in debates and Conferences. That day begins Intersolar Europe, the world’s largest solar Fair.

One of the main topics will be the energy accumulators, protagonists of the parallel Fair Electrical energy Storage (ees), which is held for the first time this year in the framework of intersolar. The new thematic area of solar thermal energy and regenerative heat is also novel. The conference programme expands and deepens the themes of Intersolar Europe, the leading fair of the solar industry, which takes place between 4 and 6 June.
As the start of this year’s intersolar Europe Conference, The European Photovoltaic Industry Association (EPIA) presents its “Global Market Outlook for Photovoltaics 2014 – 2018”. Attention will be focused today on the photovoltaic markets of Asia, Europe and America. Also the markets of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA Region) are becoming increasingly important.
In countries like Egypt or jordan, which depend on oil and gas imports, the sun represents an ideal alternative in which more and more opportunities are Seen. On 3 june, Two sessions will analyse the markets of the Middle East and Africa and describe the framework conditions and TRENDS.
Tomorrow the executive Panel of his second day is Held. Representatives of the solar sector will discuss the future of the European photovoltaic market, technological trends and new commercial models. The participants of the round table will be: Udo Möhrstedt, Executive director of IBC Solar AG, Christoph Ostermann, Executive director of Sonnenbatterie GmbH, Oliver Schäfer, President of EPIA, and Pekka Tiitinen, director of the discrete Automation and Motion division of ABB Switzerland.
On June 4, Claudia Kemfert, Director of the Department of energy, Transport and Environment of the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW), and Frank Peter, Senior director of Energy Economics projects for Progos AG, will talk about the conditions Framework of the solutions for the energy transition and the evolution of the prices of the energy generation through conventional and regenerative sources.
In addition, in more than 50 presentations and rounds of talks, experts from the sector will report and discuss technological advances in the photovoltaic sector: from solar cells and modules and inverters to manufacturing and recycling procedures, large installations, hybrid systems for roofs or new commercial and financing models.
