The smarter E Europe is canceled

31.03.2020

 

The organizers Solar Promotion GmbH and Freiburg Wirtschaft Touristik und Messe GmbH & Co. KG have decided to cancel the events for 2020 and hold them again in June 2021. The decision was made in close coordination with the registered exhibitors and the international industry associations.

“The health of the exhibitors, visitors and employees as well as the general public takes top priority for us. The smarter E Europe is a large international event with approximately 1,400 exhibitors from 45 countries and 50,000 visitors from over 160 countries. Under the prevailing circumstances, it would be impossible to organize such an international exhibition without critical complications. It was important for us to ensure that participants were notified as early as possible so they could plan accordingly,” Daniel Strowitzki, Managing Director of FWTM GmbH & Co. KG, remarked on the decision.

As of now, the organizers are working hard to determine which parts of the exhibition and conference program can be reproduced online. The smarter E Awards, Intersolar Awards and ees Awards will be presented to the winners online in order to honor the industry’s innovations on an international stage despite current developments. Over the course of the year, there will also be other ways for industry professionals and anyone else who is interested to stay abreast of relevant topics, products and technologies in the world of renewable energy and share knowledge and ideas.

“The current situation is challenging for all of us – exhibitors, visitors, conference participants, speakers, sponsors and organizers alike. In times like these, it is important to stick together and to keep our eyes on the future of all of the industries and stakeholders involved as well as our shared goal of a future-oriented energy supply,” says Markus Elsässer, CEO of Solar Promotion GmbH.

February’s record winds were followed by an unusually sunny March. Power consumption was also down by one percent from the same period last year.
