Special Exhibit Rural Electrification at Intersolar Europe Trade Fair

For the fourth time, the German Solar Industry Association (BSW-Solar) presented the project "Special Exhibit Rural Electrification" at Intersolar Europe. On 130 square meters, member companies of BSW-Solar presented their products and services relating to off-grid power. Visitors met with experts from the industry association and from the participating companies to address questions on rural electrification and establish business contacts.

During a three-day series of lectures, the exhibiting companies presented their innovative expertise and international experience with off-grid projects. Presentations on small PV applications for remote areas, hybrid applications and telecommunications of companies active in Africa, Asia and Latin America contributed to an attractive and informative event.

The presentation program was co-financed by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology’s Exportinitiative Erneuerbare Energien.
