Off-Grid Power Forum at Intersolar 2014 in Munich

At the Off-Grid Power Forum at the Intersolar Europe 2014 trade fair service & technology suppliers informed potential customers & users, experts and foreign government representatives on solar off-grid power markets, case studies, project experiences and technical solutions. The forum took place at the booth of the German Solar Industry Association (BSW-Solar). It was well attended and participating companies reported direct business contacts.

The “Off-Grid Power Forum” was presented from June 4 to 6, 2014 by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) in the framework of the “renewables - Made in Germany” initiative.. It was organised by BSW-Solar and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and supported by the Alliance for Rural Electrification (ARE), Intersolar Europe and Energypedia.info.
