The International Battery and Energy Storage Alliance (IBESA) has been established to support and facilitate collaboration between solar, electrical energy storage and smart grid technologies companies.
Under the leadership of Markus Hoehner, CEO of EuPD Research and Bryan D. Ekus, managing director of the International PV Equipment Association (IPVEA), IBESA says it will create access to professional resources, market intelligence, new networks, and emerging markets. More than 70 IPVEA members will benefit from this partnership with immediate effect.
"A strong, industry-wide alliance of global players like the IBESA is crucial in order to unify the fragmented electrical energy storage and smart grid markets, as well as to prepare and sustainably position them for the future," said Hoehner.
The alliance is also supported by the German CleanTech Institute (DCTI, the networking initiative Joint Forces for Solar and Intersolar.
