"Off-Grid Innovations and Integration Highlighted at Intersolar and SmarterE Conference"

The off-grid conference at Intersolar and SmarterE opens with a warm welcome on a sunny day, perfect for discussing solar energy. Despite some attendees facing travel challenges due to overcrowded trains, the event begins with an intriguing agenda ahead. Professor Pitt Adelman, one of the founders of the conference, shares motivational thoughts about the convergence of on-grid and off-grid systems over his 41 years in photovoltaic (PV) technology. Initially dominated by off-grid solutions before transitioning to on-grid in the late '80s and early '90s, there were predictions that off-grid would become obsolete. However, recent trends show these two sectors integrating more closely. Adelman shares personal experiences highlighting this integration's practical benefits during grid outages and his work designing hybrid systems in Namibia that cater equally to both non-electrified settlements and grid-connected areas. Philipp Blechinger from Rheinland-Normand Institute introduces himself as today's session moderator after Adelman's speech. The day's sessions include discussions on decentralized water-energy-food nexuses, digitalization's role in accelerating energy access, innovations in battery systems, and achieving 100% renewable island systems—scheduled conveniently around other events like the European Cup match—to ensure maximum participation without conflicts. The opening presentation is delivered by Babel Hoene from Germany’s Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development. ***
