On March 18 and 19, the second staging of Energy Storage — International Summit for the Storage of Renewable Energies — will take place at the fairgrounds in Düsseldorf, Germany. Organized by Messe Düsseldorf in cooperation with Solarpaxis AG, the conference and accompanying exhibition will bring together experts from science, industry, and politics to promote practical and commercially viable storage solutions for renewable energies. Topics will include political conditions, financing, cost-effectiveness, and integration of the main storage technologies. The conference language will be English.

Messe Düsseldorf is renowned as the organizer of top international trade fairs while Solarpraxis AG is one of the leading knowledge service providers in the renewable energy sector.

The event has strong international partners, including international associations such as the China Energy Storage Alliance (CNESA), the India Energy Storage Alliance (IESA), the California Energy Storage Alliance (CESA), the International Photovoltaic Equipment Association (IPVEA) as well as the Association of European Automotive and Industrial Battery Manufacturers (Eurobat). With this support, the organizers are able to expand the international orientation of Energy Storage 2013, bringing together even more countries to exchange technical ideas and establish business contacts. The conference participants will benefit from the profound market knowledge of the representatives of these international associations.
