Intersolar South America: Breaking last year’s records again!

Market analysts project a strong solar growth in several major South American markets.

Intersolar South America – the largest solar event in Latin America – attracts more than 220 exhibitors from 11 countries – a 20% rise on top of the last year’s record numbers. The exhibition area grows by 35% the second year in a row.

Solar is booming in South America. Many countries are at the global frontier for unsubsidized solar markets. With the highest irradiation levels and fast growing demand, the continent is positioned to be one of the most attractive regions for solar development.

Intersolar South America is part of this success story and proud to be the key platform for promoting solar technologies in South America. “Solar experts from all over the world will discuss all aspects of solar technologies and analyze market opportunities and business models for the industry in São Paulo. Many returning exhibitors booked bigger booths. We are also happy to welcome more than 60 companies exhibiting for the first time at Intersolar South America”, Dr. Florian Wessendorf,managing director of Solar Promotion International and Daniel Strowitzki, CEO at Freiburg Messe Marketing International, the international organizers of Intersolar South America, jointly state.

“We enjoyed the event and next year we will return again, but in a lager booth”, Sices’ CEO Leonardo Curioni announced in 2016 and walked the talk: for this year’s edition, SICES Brazil even tripled their booth space to underline their market position.

Edgard Laureano da Cunha Junior, CEO from Aranda Eventos, and co-organizer ads:”We are pleased to welcome more than 12,000 visitors to a new edition of Intersolar South America. Intersolar South America is a unique opportunity for experts to share their experiences, forge partnerships and shape solar energy developments on the South American continent.”

The high penetration of renewables in South America’s future power systems will significantly increase the need for flexible operational measures and push the deployment of innovative energy storage solutions. With its special exhibition “ees South America” Intersolar South America hosts and highlights energy storage innovations and programs. At least 40 exhibitors of Intersolar South America indicated that they will be showing electrical energy storage products as part of their portfolio.

The Intersolar South America conference will be an integral part of the three-day event. The extensive conference program includes presentations from over 70 speakers covering all relevant topics related to solar markets and technologies, looking at the challenges of decentralized generation, net metering, taxation, grid connection, dissemination, funding and more.

Additionally, Intersolar South America 2017 offers a comprehensive workshop program to train knowledge and skills. The workshop series will have the attendees leave with new skills and the confidence to navigate in this rapidly evolving industry. Workshops on investing opportunities in São Paulo and Minas Gerais are offered this year as well.
