What does it take to secure affordable, clean energy and water for rural people in low-and medium income countries? For sure, it is a combination of concerted political effort and technological progress.

Off-Grid at Intersolar Europe Conference

As part of Intersolar Europe Conference 2024, speakers shed light on experiences, innovations and future perspectives of off-grid system in four dedicated off-grid sessions. In 2023 there was an additional opening off-grid session.

This year, projects around the water-energy-food nexus will be presented and the relevance of digitalization to speed-up off-grid projects will be analyzed. An additional session will focus on storage systems and sector coupling.

Renowned key note speakers from international organizations will be providing insights into electrification, off-grid systems and decentralized renewable energies.

For participants only interested in these sessions, a separate Off-Grid conference ticket is available.
