From June 8-10, 2011, Intersolar Europe will once again take center stage in the international solar industry at the New Munich Trade Fair Centre. The world’s largest exhibition for the solar industry is more exciting than ever. Organizers are expecting over 2,000 international exhibitors to fill the 165,000 square meter exhibition space. To accommodate this booming industry, the exhibition will now span a total of 15 exhibition halls, three more than last year. The area of inverter and systems providers in particular is celebrating a marked increase.


The Special Exhibition PV ENERGY WORLD, a new feature, will address the possibilities of PV grid integration, i.e. feeding solar power into the public grid and storing solar power. The Special Exhibition will also present the German energy mix of the future and the role photovoltaics is expected to play in it.  The extensive accompanying program will complement the variety of innovations on display in the areas of photovoltaics, PV production technology and solar thermal technology.

June 8 this year marks the opening of the meeting point for the international solar industry, Intersolar Europe. Intersolar Europe is the largest single event of the world’s leading exhibition series for the entire solar industry. In addition to Intersolar Europe in Munich, Intersolar also hosts Intersolar North America in San Francisco and Intersolar India in Mumbai. Over the course of the three days, it is expected that over 75,000 trade visitors from 150 countries will flock to the New Munich Trade Fair Centre to learn about the latest developments in solar technology. Stretching across 165,000 square meters of exhibition space, nearly 2,000 exhibitors will be presenting their products and services in the areas of photovoltaics, PV production technology and solar thermal technology. The majority of Intersolar exhibitors benefit from the opportunity to access global key markets. Many of those who forge contacts during Intersolar Europe see their business profile expand into another continent thanks to the launching of the international Intersolar exhibitions. 


Markus Elsaesser, CEO of Solar Promotion GmbH, Pforzheim, one of the organizers of Intersolar, summarizes the positive experiences of many exhibitors when he says that Intersolar Europe “creates synergies, has a multiplier effect and establishes close contacts, which all result in successful business deals.” Elsaesser goes on to say that “the continuing growth of Intersolar Europe in Munich consolidates its role in the international industry year after year and demonstrates that the German solar market is expanding like never before.”
