ees South America is LATAM’s major platform for electrical energy storage technologies. After two years as a special exhibition, ees South America will celebrate its debut as an autonomous exhibition in 2019. It will be held in parallel with Intersolar South America and will take place at the Expo Center Norte in São Paulo, Brazil, on August 27-29, 2019. ees South America will focus on batteries and electrical energy storage systems.
ees South America will highlight energy storage solutions suited to support and complement energy systems with increasing amounts of renewable energy sources, attracting investors, utilities, installers, manufacturers and project developers from all over the world. It will be part of the exhibition trio The smarter E South America.
With ees Europe in Munich, ees North America in San Francisco, ees South America in São Paulo and ees India in Mumbai, ees is represented on four continents.
The market potential for battery storage systems is huge – whether for homeowners, in grid systems or as large-scale storage systems in commercial or industrial use. According to a study by the market research company Navigant Research, worldwide revenue from decentralized energy storage systems will grow from $452 million in 2014 to over $16.5 billion by 2024, and the market is set to reach a volume of over 10 GW.
South America offers one of the five highest solar potentials in the world. In the long-term, a high share of solar energy in the region, together with other renewable energy sources like hydro, wind and geothermal energy, will impose challenges on the power system. These challenges will be addressed with storage technologies, smart transmission systems and demand side management (DSM).
The high penetration of renewables that is envisaged in future power systems of South America will significantly increase the need for flexible operational measures and generation technologies, whose associated investment decisions have to be properly planned in the long-term. In Chile for example the electricity sector is already deploying battery storage as a spinning reserve. In the residential, commercial and industrial segments, the market players are looking for market-ready energy storage solutions.
With three parallel energy exhibitions and one special exhibition, The smarter E South America is LATAM's innovation hub for the new energy world. It takes a comprehensive
approach to the topics of the new energy world by presenting cross-sector energy solutions and technologies.
The smarter E South America brings together the following events:
