The venue for the event will be the New Munich Trade Fair Center. Energy Storage covers the entire value chain in innovative battery and energy-storage technology, from components to manufacturing and applications. As such it is an ideal platform to serve the needs of the rapidly expanding market in mobile and stationary energy storage devices. A congress lasting several days is being planned to accompany the trade show. Energy Storage 2012 takes place November 13-16, 2012.

In May 2011 three of Germany´s federal ministries launched a joint initiative to promote research and development in the field of energy storage technologies. The ‘Energy Storage Funding Initiative’ is backed by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology, the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety and the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. In an initial phase through to 2014 the three ministries will provide a total of up to 200 million euros to be made available to research projects for the development of a broad range of storage technologies for electricity, heat and other forms of energy.

Norbert Bargmann, Deputy CEO of Messe München GmbH, said: "Messe München recognizes the needs of this fast-growing innovative industry for a dedicated trade event, and the potential for such a platform. With Energy Storage we are offering an ideal basis for the market players already successful in this growing market and for those wishing to enter it. By holding it concurrently with the world´s leading trade fairs electronica or productronica – with their core emphasis on electronics or electronics production – this provides unique synergy effects and will attract significant numbers of attendees from Germany and abroad."

This year also the Federal Government adopted the new National Electromobility Development Plan, which aims to double allocated funding for e-mobility research to a sum of one billion euros by 2013. The creation of new production facilities for batteries and energy storage devices is expected to generate 4.8 billion euros of new business in the engineering sector by 2020.

Before the premiere in 2012, however, Energy Storage is getting a preview this fall at productronica 2011. In a special show and in many individual lectures in the Innovations Forum, attendees can see demonstrations of manufacturing processes and gather key facts and figures on markets, technologies and strategies. productronica takes place from November 15-18, 2011.

Energy Storage will also be putting in a presence at AUTOMATICA, International Trade Fair for Automation and Mechatronics, which takes place May 22-25, 2012. There it will have its own special show on "Automation of Battery and Energy Storage Production".
