The OFF-GRID Expo + Conference inspires as an international conference fair for self-sufficient, off-grid renewable energy and water supply

The OFF-GRID Expo + Conference 2022 is one of the most important industry meetings of the international off-grid sector and closed with a positive outcome and innovative, practical initiatives. More than 60 exhibitors from 12 countries presented their products during the two-day show. Approx. 900 participants from 27 countries explored solutions, innovations and services for an off-grid power supply.

The 4th OFF-GRID Expo + Conference (OEC) congress trade fair was held in Augsburg on 1-2 December 2022 and was again a great success with a well-attended specialist conference and numerous opportunities for networking. In keeping with tradition, the event kicked off on 30 November 2022 with TechDay, which provided service sessions offering users in-depth insights into innovative products.

ARE was again a conceptual partner for the conference. “One of the key takeaways from the conference was that companies and institutes involved in renewable energy are increasingly networking with each other across industries: whether e-mobility, agriculture, telecommunications or other sectors,” said Jens Jaeger, ARE’s Director of Policy and Business Development.

“The conference demonstrated that the water-energy-food nexus in particular, which aims to support the SDGs, was of immense benefit.”

Other highlights included two sessions on women as entrepreneurs driving change and financing options in various forms, e.g., microfinance. Additional topics included innovative cooling applications, DRE and e-mobility, and energy storage solutions.
