ENERGY STORAGE EUROPE 2018 reflects positive development in the industry

Düsseldorf, 15.03.18. According to the current estimate of the German Energy Storage Association (Bundesverband Energiespeicher e. V. - BVES), the energy storage industry will grow by around 11 per cent in 2018 and will generate a turnover of approximately EUR 5.1 billion. Medium-sized companies are the main driving force behind this increase. The development of ENERGY STORAGE EUROPE reflects this industry trend: With a total of 170 exhibitors and about 4.500 visitors, also this year's energy storage trade fair and the two conferences ESE and IRES continued the positive development of the past years.

"No other trade fair in the world covers the entire spectrum of energy storage solutions. Every year, new players enter the still young market with innovative solutions - often with new technological approaches to energy storage", says Hans Werner Reinhard, Managing Director of Messe Düsseldorf.

Call on Spain, Catalonia and the EU to negotiate the affirmation of a new and renewable energy based Catalonia

Bonn, 22 October 2017 – We call on Spain and the EU to immediately step back from confrontation and allow democracy to rule and respect the will of the Catalonian people. This is the true meaning and realisation of the European Union: the softening of national boundaries and the strengthening of regional cultural, ecological and economical realms.

Let's also not let a good independence movement go to waste: and make sure the Catalonian and other European movements towards cultural affinity and regional self-determination are supported and endowed with a deeper existential meaning: the turn from nuclear and fossil energy. Herein lies the real promise and deep rationale of an independent Catalona, Scottland, Lombardia or Bavaria: the ability to not only shed the antiquated notion of national states and fixed if arbitrary boundaries, but also the reconstruction of a resilient, peaceful and united Europe - a renewable Union of Regions.
