The opinion of experts

  1. "For us as a former organiser of this event, one highlight has been that technology is now so much more professional than back then. It was nice that the entire concept of this event remained the way we had developed it over the past few years and I am glad that so many exhibitors came!"

    Tobias Zwirner, Phaesun GmbH

  2. "Overall, the OEW was definitely a highlight. I thought it was good and very important that we had the TechDay in advance. So we were able to hold a technical training session with the customers who are already here at the fair anyway. In any case, keep going - get rid of the grid!“

    Bob Hopman, Victron Energy

  3. "The future of Off-grid energy is more than just creating electricity in remote places. It is about integrating new 4IR technologies such as monitoring and SCADA in order to give the end users more real time data & control and allow even remote systems to be more reliable."

    Mark Dettmer, Mission Critical Energy Inc.
