Event type


A two-day event around off-grid solar, wind and hydropower systems and the self-sufficient power supply that has now firmly established itself in the scene.
On October 26, our energy start-ups from the 7th Team Training Program will present their business ideas. They have spent five weeks working on their value proposition and business model, as well as their pitch deck, and will present to all their friends, partners and supporters in a 5-minute pitch.
The FfE Energy Days include the 3 events “Energy is digital – The Energy Conference 2021”, “FfE Symposium 2021” and “Annual Conference of BEEN-i”.
The share of renewable energies in the electricity market is continuously increasing. However, these cause increased fluctuations in the power grid, which have to be balanced out. With their batteries, electric cars offer the possibility of serving as a kind of “rolling” storage facility in the primary control power market, in order to store surplus energy temporarily and to release it again when required.
While the first day of the event, with various round tables and panels, invites experts and representatives from politics, business and research to discuss the current challenges in the energy sector, the arena on 30 October opens its doors to the general public, in particular families, to walk through the energy trail and deal with current and future energy issues.
The increasing feed-in of renewable, volatile energies causes fluctuations across all grid levels. This is a challenge for all grid operators, which is met by the use of flexibility, i.e. load and generation that can be flexibly deployed or shifted. How this works, which forms of flexibility are used and how digital platforms leverage them will be discussed at the next Smart Grids Talks.
Increased energy and climate policy ambitions at European and national level should ensure that the share of renewable energies is increased rapidly. These higher targets, volatile markets, innovation and falling prices in green technologies, as well as constantly changing framework conditions at various political levels, put the questions of how to finance the energy transition into focus more than ever.
This year’s UECT will highlight how batteries and fuel cells can be rapidly transferred from the laboratory to mass production. Around 25 experts from Germany and other European countries will present the state of the art in batteries, fuel cells and hydrogen at the Ulm Congress Centre. Six sessions over two days will discuss how CO2-free mobility with batteries and fuel cells will develop in the coming years.
Solar Solutions Düsseldorf stands for more than 500 innovations and 100 practical seminars on the latest developments in energy storage, intelligent products and an ever-expanding range of solar modules. Solar Solutions International is the largest trade fair for solar energy in Northwest Europe. As an exclusive B2b event, the first German edition offers exhibitors and visitors a unique opportunity for high-level networking.

The energy industry is on the cusp of an energy revolution where innovation has become a critical need: the energy transition requires rapid, cost-effective and scalable solutions to ensure a sustainable ecosystem that complies with environmental and social responsibility (ESG) principles.
This fair attracts exhibitors from 16 countries. Electrex Africa 2021 is a great opportunity to showcase your company at one of the leading business hubs in East and Central Africa.
AfricaCom, die Hauptveranstaltung des Africa Tech Festival, ist der Treffpunkt von Afrikas größter Gemeinschaft von Tech-Champions und die größte Tech-Veranstaltung des Kontinents. Seit 24 Jahren informieren und vernetzen wir Wirtschaftsführer, Technikexperten, politische Entscheidungsträger und Investoren, die alle an vorderster Front des digitalen Wandels in Afrika stehen.
Over the past 22 years, the Forum has earned a reputation as the premier gathering of decision makers in the African energy sector to form partnerships, identify opportunities and advance the industry. We handpick the most credible organisations in the sector and provide an immersive networking experience like no other.
ECA Energy will unlock new energy solutions in power generation, transmission, distribution, storage and energy consumption management by bringing together global energy manufacturers. In line with the Africa Clean Energy Corridor (ACEC), the event will support the diversification of renewable energy technologies, including solar energy, biothermics, wind energy and hydropower.
