Wind Meets Solar and Storage: EES Europe points the way to the clean energy generation of the future

Munich (renewablepress) - Solar energy is one of the mainstays of the global energy transition. Small wind turbines and energy storage systems are also proving highly complementary to photovoltaics. Connecting different sources of energy with storage solutions to form intelligent networks is the basis for a stable energy supply via the power grid in the future. ees Europe — Europe\'s largest exhibition for batteries and energy storage systems is dedicating a special exhibit entitled Wind meets Solar and Storage to these questions. From June 22–24, 2016, in collaboration with the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), the exhibition in Munich will be demonstrating how the vision of a clean energy supply can be put into practice.

The sustainable and affordable generation of electricity for stationary and mobile applications is one of the most important global challenges for the decades to come. An option with a bright future: Solar power generation. Small wind turbines are highly complementary to photovoltaics, as good wind conditions often prevail when the sun is blocked by clouds. State-of-the-art large-scale storage systems are one of the mainstays of the grid of the future, ensuring a stable power supply with clean energy. They balance out peaks and bottle necks in energy supply by absorbing excess energy when it is not needed, and releasing it later. At the special exhibit Wind meets Solar and Storage at ees Europe, researchers from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) will be demonstrating how different technologies for power generation, energy storage and conversion are connected to consumers in a smart energy system that utilizes the most up-to-date information technologies.

One of the centerpieces of the special exhibit is the prototype of an energy storage device measuring almost 100 cubic meters. The large-scale storage system is close to series maturity; it boasts an exceptionally high energy density, innovative cooling concept, and outstanding energy and economic efficiency. The special exhibit will be complemented by the shared booth on Wind meets Solar and Storage, where CUBE Engineering GmbH, EMD Deutschland GbR, FGH GmbH and windtest grevenbroich GmbH amongst others will be presenting their products and innovations.
