Energy Storage China and Clean Energy Expo China join forces; Leading energy events to take place concurrently in Beijing

SHANGHAI, CHINA--(Marketwired - Nov 14, 2016) - ENERGY STORAGE CHINA (ESC) and Clean Energy Expo China (CEEC) recently announced that these two leading energy industry events will be co-located in 2017, at China International Exhibition Center in Beijing, March 29-31 in 2017.

Energy Storage China is the most influential industry conference and exhibition in China's energy storage industry -- playing a significant role in informing and connecting industry professionals as the country develops a clean, efficient and reliable energy system. CEEC is a major industry event with the widest coverage in China's clean energy industry. Both events together are expected to draw more than 500 exhibitors and more than 25,000 professional visitors, including industry experts, policymakers, government officials and developers. ESC focuses on technology and applications for the energy storage industry, while CEEC covers the entire clean energy generation value chain. Collocating both shows will produce useful synergies for industry, research, regulators and media.

"Energy Storage China is the key storage event in the country, and our alliance with CEEC will make it even more strategic and productive for expo visitors," said Heiko M. Stutzinger, Deputy General Manager of Messe Düsseldorf Shanghai, the event's organizer. "Messe Düsseldorf holds the leading energy storage exhibitions and conferences in five regions on three continents, covering the largest energy markets worldwide: China, North America, India, Germany and Japan, with nearly 70% of global renewable generation. We are confident that collocating these events will offer greater value, reach a wider audience, and facilitate increased deal-making in the fast-growing Chinese market."

Wang Hong, General Manager of Tiger Exhibition Co., Ltd. and co-organizer of CEEC, agreed: "We are optimistic and confident in the strong alliance between our CEEC and Energy Storage China, hosted by Messe Düsseldorf Shanghai. Over the last years CEEC has become the largest clean energy expo in China. We believe that both events will drive development of the renewable energy and energy storage industries in China and Asia."

China, the world's largest wind and solar power producer, has proven to be a key driver in the global energy storage market. China currently has 105 megawatts (MW) of non-hydro storage capacity, experiencing a 110 percent increase over the past five years. According to the Global Energy Storage Forecast, 2016-24, published by Bloomberg New Energy Finance, China is expected to install 1.8 gigawatts of capacity by 2024. In a statement on behalf of the State Grid Energy Research Institute, organization Vice President Jiang Liping said, "China is heading an energy revolution led by the transformation to low-carbon energy and the opening up of its wholesale power market. Storage will be important to bolster the changes."

Strong ESC development since 2014
The first Energy Storage China event was held in 2014. Over the years ESC has become a high-value platform for learning, networking and deal-making. Under the theme, "Driving Energy Storage Commercialization, Policy Interpretation, Technology Application and Financial Innovation," three successful editions of Energy Storage China have been held. The 2016 event took place in May in Beijing, attracting 2,186 visitors from 12 countries. For more information, visit www.escexpo.cn.

Clean Energy Expo China - the ideal partner
Organized by the China Electricity Council, CEEC is the most influential industry expo in the field of renewable energies in China. Since 2008, CEEC has segmented and established sub-exhibitions in key areas of clean energy, such as smart grid, wind energy, solar PV energy, solar thermal and CSP, decentralized energy, biomass energy and clean energy grid connection. The CEEC conference has created exclusive trading and investment opportunities for domestic and overseas customers. For more information, visit www.ceecintl.com.

Building the most influential industry platform
As collocated events, ESC and CEEC will cover an exhibition area of 40,000 sqm and are expected to draw more than 25,000 professional visitors. The two expos will provide an improved communication platform for domestic and overseas clean energy suppliers and buyers to promote sustainable, long-term clean energy industry development.
