Energy & Synergies: the OFF-GRID Expo + Conference

What is behind the OFF-GRID Expo + Conference?

The two-day event is the only neutral congress trade event in Europe focused on the off-grid solar, wind and hydropower systems sector. With its practice-oriented format consisting of a conference, trade fair and community network happening, it is the highlight at the end of the year in December.

Launched in 2011 as a workshop, the event attracted more and more participants and met with ever-increasing enthusiasm, also among exhibitors and event partners. Since 2020 the Alliance for Rural Electrification is the official conference partner of the Off-Grid Expo+Conference.

2022 highlights

The OFF-GRID Expo + Conference 2022 inspired once again with a strongly attended trade conference and many networking opportunities. Take a look at the highlights in our video.


Here’s what our exhibitors have to say

„We are here at the OFF-GRID Expo+Conference the fourth time. It is a very great meeting for all expert companies in this field. This is the reason, why we are here: To meet all the people, who have interest in this specific topic. We are very proud to be here to present our newest product. What is very appreciable here, is that the people are involved in this specific topic „green energy“– it’s not like some general exhibition. Here can we focus on what is interesting for us and the public."



„We are very pleased to be here at OFF-GRID Expo+Conference in Augsburg. We’ve been coming from the USA to this show for many years. We’d like to serve the European market and therefore we are featuring two new products at the expo. We are very happy to be present at the fair and during Techday."

Brad Berwald, Morningstar Corporation


„You won't find networking opportunities like this at any other trade show. At the OEC, the exhibitors are, in effect, just as much participants, because here everyone acts together, exchanges ideas, and shares and presents projects and innovations with each other. Even those who are new to the industry get in very quickly here, as do the delegations we have organized.

The OEC enables dialogue between all the relevant players who drive the process; for project development, this is very important. That's the unique selling point of the OEC: everyone who does projects is here, that's why we're here."

Michael Schmidt, UNIDO ITPO Germany
