More visitors from Eastern Europe expected at The smarter E Europe 2024

The age of solar energy is dawning in Eastern Europe: According to the European industry association SolarPower Europe, Poland has been one of the top ten leading countries in Europe in terms of PV deployment since 2016. Hungary has joined the list after adding 1,6 GW of PV capacity in 2023, a 45% increase over the previous year. This was the country’s most successful solar year ever.


Bulgaria, Romania and the Czech Republic have also exceeded the 1 GW mark last year. On sunny days, solar energy accounted for 41% of Bulgaria’s power supply in 2023. Romania saw a 308% growth compared to the previous year, deploying more than 1 GW of new capacity.

This development could already be felt at last year’s Intersolar Europe, the world’s leading exhibition for the solar industry: More than 10% of trade visitors from The smarter E Europe’s top 30 countries were from Eastern Europe. This year, the organizers are once again expecting a large number of visitors from this region. At Intersolar Europe, trade visitors have the opportunity to learn more about the latest business models and the requirements for a rapid deployment of renewable sources of energy. The exhibition offers a wide range of technologies, products and solutions.

The Intersolar Europe Conference, starting one day before the exhibition (June 18, 2024), also offers a wide range of content. Experts will discuss topics such as power purchase agreements (PPAs), financing models and hybrid solar power plants. They will also provide insights into different markets, for example the annual Global Market Outlook provided by the industry association SolarPower Europe. Intersolar Europe will take place from June 19 – 21, 2024 as part of The smarter E Europe, the continent’s largest alliance of exhibitions for the energy industry, in Munich. The event will be flanked by the three exhibitions ees Europe, Power2Drive Europe and EM-Power Europe.
