Pioneering new projects, technologies and concepts help shape the new energy world and drive the transition in the energy industry forward. The solutions honored with the Intersolar AWARD and the ees AWARD are trendsetters and reflect the rapid development of the industry. Since 2008, 1045 applications from 46 countries have been submitted for the awards at Intersolar Europe, the world’s leading exhibition for the solar industry, and ees Europe, the continent's largest exhibition for batteries and energy storage systems. A total of 108 products, services and projects have received the prestigious prizes to date.
The global energy industry is undergoing a radical transformation. Digitalization and decentralization are changing the face of the energy world. Renewable energy has become a crucial part of our energy supply system. If renewable energy is to compete against conventional sources of energy, it is not enough to simply improve how it is generated. Instead, the fields of generation, energy storage, distribution and consumption must be connected seamlessly and intelligently. In order to give all these aspects the attention they deserve, the organizers of Intersolar and ees are taking the logical step of combining all topics and events under a new umbrella called The smarter E.
