Energy Storage China 2017 Opens Today

Energy Storage China 2017 (ESC) opens today (March 29th) in China International Exhibition Center in Beijing, organized by Messe Düsseldorf (Shanghai)Co., Ltd. and supported by China Strategic Alliance of Smart Energy Industrial Technology Innovation.


China's energy storage market grew quickly in 2016. The energy storage in emerging markets is forecasted to grow at a rate of 40% in the next five years, increasing from the current 2GW to 80GW according to “The Development Trends and Opportunities of the Energy Storage in Emerging Markets” released recently by the International Finance Corporation (IFC) in 2017. To our delight, China sees the importance of energy storage and has adjusted policies and funding in order to support the movement. Currently, energy storage has been listed in the top 100 projects in the “13th Five-Year Plan” and officially included in the national development plan for the first time. Energy storage, electric vehicles and EV Cell technologies have risen to the status of “national strategy” in the “13th Five-Year Plan”, indicating a plan to combine energy storage with automobile production and energy-saving systems and to build a new model of sustainable development. Experts predict that the market growth of China’s energy storage industry will be more than RMB¥50 billion in the next five years with unlimited prospects.


ESC is the most authoritative industry conference and exhibition in China’s energy storage industry. It also offers an international platform for industry information and professional and technical knowledge exchanges. The conference plays an important role in promoting the development of high-efficiency and reliable energy system in China and is the weathervane of China’s energy storage industry. ESC 2017 collaborates with China International Clean Energy Expo & China Clean Power Summit (CEEC) to build a professional and international platform with over 30,000 sqm of exhibition space, attracting more than 500 leading domestic and foreign enterprises within the industry including TÜV Rheinland Group Greater China, ESSO, GCCAlliance Inc., GK, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Xuji Group, NARI Group, CLOU, Three Gorges Group, RENON, Trina Solar, KSTAR, AEROSPACE POWER, SIEMENS, GE, Titan, Nengrui, MIDWEST, Yong Lian, Growatt, SAJ, GoodWe, LONTEN, Beijing Zenith Technologies etc. ESC 2017 is expected to attract more than 30,000 professional visitors, industry experts, staff from the energy department and other corporate executives motivated by the knowledge exchange aspects of clean energy development and the energy storage industry chain in China.
