The World?s Leading Exhibition for the Solar Energy Industry

On June 8–10, 2011 around 77,000 visitors from 156 countries flocked to Intersolar Europe at the New Munich Trade Fair Centre. In total, 2,280 exhibitors presented their technologies and services in the fields of “Photovoltaics”, “PV Production Technology” and “Solar Thermal Technology” across an exhibition space spanning 168,000 square meters that included 15 exhibition halls and an outdoor exhibition area.

This year, the world’s largest exhibition for the solar industry once again celebrated significant growth in all exhibition areas. The international character of the exhibitors also reflected the industry’s global importance. Companies from across 47 countries came to Intersolar Europe in Munich. Visitors and exhibitors particularly enjoyed the “PV ENERGY WORLD” Special Exhibition which clearly demonstrated the energy mix of the future in Germany. The four thematic areas of “Smart Grid”, “Smart Building and E-Mobility”, “Smart Cities” and “Smart PV Technology and Economy” illustrated how the share of solar power in total energy consumption could be increased in the future.

Markus Elsässer, CEO of Solar Promotion GmbH, Pforzheim, says: “Thanks to the sharp rise in awareness surrounding the topic of energy supply, Intersolar Europe has grown once again – as an organizer, this is good news of course. However, it is the quality of the event that is more important to us. I believe we have succeeded in directly addressing many questions about future energy supply and, in doing so, have showcased the latest state-of-the-art technology, shining the light on solar solutions along the way. Many exhibitors and visitors agree on our success. We want to build on this thematic approach in the future and thus further highlight possible solar technology solutions.” Solar Promotion GmbH, Pforzheim, is one of the organizers of Intersolar Europe, and works in cooperation with Freiburg Wirtschaft Touristik und Messe GmbH (FWTM).

Over 2,000 economic and scientific experts convened at the Intersolar Europe Conference at Munich’s International Congress Centre (ICM) to discuss the latest developments in international photovoltaic and solar thermal markets as well as cutting-edge technology trends. The conference took place two days prior to and during the exhibition.
