INTERSOLAR EUROPE offers a full look into the future of the solar industry and environmental protection. The international exhibition is the biggest platform for companies to debut innovative, groundbreaking technologies and solutions as well as conduct high-level business negotiations.
The product portfolio has grown to include photovoltaics, PV production technologies, energy storage systems, solar power plants, solar thermal technologies and renewable heating.
Editions have been running successfully since 1991 in Pforzheim, just as the solar industry was picking up steam. The turnover has been so great that organisers have introduced satellite events to São Paulo, San Francisco, Mumbai, and Beijing. INTERSOLAR EUROPE also conducts important and often difficult conversations about subjects like climate change. Last edition discussed the concerns re climate change and electricity shortage.

INTERSOLAR EUROPE happens every year at the start of summer in Munich, Germany. Editions run for a total of three days sometime in June and shares the stage with automatica – the trade fair dedicated to automation and robotics. Solar Promotion GmbH and Freiburg Wirtschaft Touristik und Messe GmbH & Co. KG are joint organisers of the international exhibition, which takes place at Messe Munich.
Doors open only to professional visitors and working hours are from 09:00 am until 18:00 pm. The last day wraps up only an hour earlier at 17:00 pm. Messe Munich has numerous connections to the city’s infrastructure, and the centre offers a lot of parking spaces for commuters. In terms of public transport, you can choose between a metro line and suburban trains.
INTERSOLAR EUROPE enjoys the support and sponsorship of several German and European associations and organisations in the field, which guarantee a high turnover of visitors from every level in the industry. The most notable sponsors include EPIA (European Photovoltaic Industry Association), ESTIF (European Photovoltaic Industry Association) and ISES (International Solar Energy Society).
Last edition saw 1000 international exhibitors and over 50,000 professionals in attendance, which is a great indication as to how your visit is going to go. If we’re to break down the audience in terms of professional background, we see a great variety with architects, installers, energy consultants, utilities, integrators, distributors, investors and analysts. But that’s only the industry professionals. On a higher level you have energy planner, decision makers and a strong government representation from officials.
