On June 13, 2012, Intersolar Europe - the world’s largest exhibition for the solar industry – once again opens its doors at the Munich New Trade Fair Centre in Germany. Exhibitor registrations are already flooding in and the preparations are in full swing. Some initial figures have already been established: A total of 180,000 square meters are available for an expected 2,400 exhibitors in 2012, which corresponds to another 6% growth over the previous year. In addition to the outdoor area, the exhibition spans all 16 exhibition halls for the first time. A new feature is the expansion of exhibition space to include the manufacture of photovoltaic products. The area of PV production technology will spread across two exhibition halls in 2012. VDMA (German Engineering Federation), headquartered in Frankfurt am Main, have come on board as one of Intersolar Europe's supporters this year.
In view of the global changes in the solar industry, Intersolar Europe 2012 aims at opening up new markets, identifying technological potential and creating even closer ties between companies. The international photovoltaics industry in particular is currently unsettled by changes in the political and economic situation. The sector’s current development is strongly affected by the increasingly fierce global competition and the consolidation of the industry. The self-confessed aim of the industry is to make photovoltaics independent of subsidies and able to produce solar power at a competitive price.
