CISOLAR continues the success of the forum REF-2011 which, for the last several years, has been the leading business forum in the field of renewable energy in the CIS. The role that energy storage plays in future energy supplies is the topic of ‘Energy Storage – International Summit for the Storage of Renewable Energies (organised by Messe Düsseldorf in cooperation with Solarpraxis AG). The inaugural conference, with accompanying technical exhibition, will focus on practical feasibility. Representatives from research, industry, politics and energy supply will converge to shed light on commercially viable applications and innovative concepts for energy storage as well as on their potential and affordability. Chairman of the Programme Committee is Prof. Dr. Eicke R. Weber, Spokesman of the Fraunhofer Energy Alliance and Head of the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy systems in Freiburg. Session themes include: Overall Context of Energy Management and the Role of Storage Technologies for future Energy Supply Electrochemical Storage (Batteries) Thermal Storage Renewable Hydrogen and Methane - Power-to-Gas Large scale Hydro Storage and European Grid Integration On-Grid electrical Energy Storage - Systems Design Finally, there will be a discussion involving all session leaders about the status quo of the technology, applications and innovations and about the future prospects for energy storage. The conference will be in English with simultaneous translation into German.
