International Innovation Prizes for the New Energy World – Deadline for Submissions Extended until April 30

Press Release – Thursday, April 23, 2020

Pforzheim, April 23, 2020: Although The smarter E Europe 2020 has been canceled and The smarter E South America 2020 postponed, we still want to take the time to recognize market leaders, SMEs, start-ups and project owners for their pioneering solutions and projects with the most important innovation prizes in the energy industry. The winners of The smarter E AWARD, Intersolar AWARD and ees AWARD will be honored in a virtual ceremony at the end of June 2020. Submissions can still be made until the extended deadline of April 30.

Exhibitors at The smarter E events taking place worldwide as well as those originally registered to exhibit at The smarter E Europe 2020 are eligible to submit their innovative products and projects to be considered for the international prizes. Submissions must be made by April 30, 2020. “The current developments brought about by the coronavirus acutely limit companies of the new energy world in their ability to advertise and market their products and solutions. Particularly in these unusual times, competing for an award offers companies a unique opportunity to present their innovations to international experts and the market as a whole,” says Markus Elsässer, CEO of Solar Promotion. “For over 10 years, we have aimed to honor the people behind these innovations on a very public platform. And this year, we will once again recognize the leaders in the field of renewable energy.”

Virtual AWARD Ceremony

In order to guarantee the visibility promised and to honor the industry’s innovations on an international stage in spite of the current situation, the AWARD Ceremony for The smarter E AWARD, Intersolar AWARD and ees AWARD will be held online on June 30, 2020. Award finalists and winners will not only benefit from the media impact and reach of the ceremony, they will also enjoy an attractive marketing package with new digital features.

3 awards – 4 categories

From electricity and heat generation to storage to the distribution of renewable energy – The smarter E, Intersolar and ees AWARD in the four categories of Outstanding Projects, Smart Renewable Energy, Photovoltaics and Electrical Energy Storage honor especially innovative solutions and projects.

The smarter E AWARD recognizes solutions that draw on renewable energy, decentralization and digitalization to intelligently connect all aspects of energy in the electricity, heating and transportation sectors. While the category of Outstanding Projects honors completed projects in the areas of solar, storage, e-mobility and energy management, the Smart Renewable Energy category shines a spotlight on concepts and products in the areas of sector coupling, Power-to-X, digitalization and grid infrastructure.

The solar industry’s flagship award, the Intersolar AWARD, honors companies in the category of Photovoltaics that are setting the future trends in the industry with innovations such as high-performance solar modules, cutting-edge cell technologies, enhanced inverters or unique substructures.

The ees AWARD celebrates products and solutions that are already contributing to a smart, sustainable and cost-effective energy supply, be it through mobile or stationary battery and energy storage technology, components for energy storage systems or battery production technologies.

EM-Power Europe 2022: A Stable Power Supply With Grid-Stabilizing Inverters

April 20, 2022

Large-scale fossil-fueled power stations and nuclear power plants have been stabilizing the power grid until now but the energy transition is going to change that. The last nuclear reactors in Germany are due to be shut down by the end of 2022. And the plan is to phase out coal altogether by 2030. Before the war in Ukraine, gas-fired power plants were pegged as a transition technology. But now there is no choice but to rethink that strategy.
