Intelligently Connecting Renewable Energies and Storage Systems
The Intersolar Europe exhibition and conference, celebrating its 25th anniversary, united the solar industry and its partners – manufacturers, suppliers, distributors and service providers – last June in Munich. In parallel the ees, Europe´s largest exhibition for batteries and energy storage systems connected with the world´s leading solar event. The focus of the exhibitions and the comprehensive accompanying programs was on the newest trends, services and products for the energy supply of the future.
Podium Session at PCIM Europe Marks New Chapter in GaN Power Device Adoption
While silicon carbide devices have been gaining a stronger beachhead in displacing IGBTs in higher voltage applications, the evolution of GaN as a cost-effective alternative to Si MOSFETs in applications from 200V up through 600V was, in many instances, moving at a glacial pace.
2020 Vision: Key Trends in Power and Energy Management
Over the next four years, our industry will continue to face significant energy management challenges, such as the burden of delivering and storing more power. The world’s population consumes about 17 terawatts of power from various energy sources, with the highest consumption happening in developed countries like the U.S.(1) The problem is finding ways to deliver this massive amount of power more efficiently. The solution: breakthroughs in power electronics.
Successful 10th Battery Experts Forum
An even more comprehensive program impressed the participants of the 10th Battery Experts Forum – formerly called "Development Forum Accumulator Technologies" – organized by Batteryuniversity in Aschaffenburg, Germany, from 5 through 7 April 2016. More than 40 top-class speakers informed around 600 experts about state-of-the-art technology trends, who attended to discover trends and to find solutions.
