LATAM’s Largest Exhibition and Conference for the Solar Industry opens its doors and reflects the dynamic of the industry

Sao Paulo, August 28, 2018: Solar is the fastest growing power generation source worldwide. The reason for solar’s popularity are manifold – it’s unique in its flexible and distributed clean nature, it allows innumerable applications and it is now also increasingly the lowest-cost power generation technology. An abundance of solar resources, high power prices, falling technology costs, and an increasing need for resource diversification combine to place Brazil among the global leaders for PV development.

Market analysts agree that Latin America will account for over 10% of global solar demand by 2022. Spearheaded by several key markets such as Mexico, Chile, Brazil and Argentina, opportunities for solar PV are being pushed by clean energy generation targets, competitive auctions, corporate procurement and increased utilization of distributed generation. Currently, the region collectively has installed over 7 GW of solar PV, with an additional 40 GW expected to be developed by the end of 2022.

“We are proud to be part of this success story and are looking forward to a vibrant and enthusiastic atmosphere on the show floor”, Dr. Florian Wessendorf, managing director of Solar Promotion International and Daniel Strowitzki, CEO at Freiburg Management and Marketing International, the international organizers of Intersolar South America, jointly state.
Intersolar South America – LATAM’s Largest Exhibition and Conference for the Solar Industry- opens its doors to more than 12,500 visitors. More than 260 exhibitors from 10 countries will present their latest photovoltaic developments, solar thermal technologies, energy storage solutions and electric transportation.

New energy world at display

The global energy industry has been undergoing a radical transformation in recent years. Instead of large-scale, centralized nuclear and fossil fuel power stations, the energy supply of the future will be secured by millions of decentralized renewable energy plants in combination with intelligent storage, distribution and consumption solutions.

Intersolar South America reflects this development by hosting and highlighting the special exhibition ees South America and the special exhibit Power2Drive. Covering the entire value chain of innovative battery and energy storage technologies ees South America is the ideal platform for all stakeholders in the rapidly growing energy storage market.
