Volta-X is the new addition to the portfolio and is being offered in cooperation with the Energy Storage System Association (BVES)
Messe Stuttgart offers a diverse and sustainable range of exhibitions in the energy sector. With Volta-X, the cross-sectoral exhibition for energy systems of the future, the Stuttgart exhibition location is expanding its offering in this field. The new event will run in parallel with eltefa, the trade fair for electrical engineering and electronics, from 28 to 30 March 2023. Volta-X will showcase innovative energy technologies, such as modern storage systems, which are contributing towards security of supply and flexibility in the electricity, heat and mobility sectors. As a leading industry association, BVES is the ideal partner for Messe Stuttgart.
“We are delighted that we, Messe Stuttgart, have this opportunity to showcase modern and sustainable developments in the energy sector together with BVES. Through Volta-X, we are offering an industry platform with national and international appeal to further promote the necessary reorientation of the entire energy system towards renewable energies,” says President Roland Bleinroth.
BVES is the voice of the energy storage industry and advocates at national and international level for the development and deployment of energy storage systems. It represents the interests of its members and maintains a continuing dialogue with policy-makers and the authorities. As Thomas Speidel, President of BVES, explains: “Sustainability is an important focus for Messe Stuttgart. A commitment that is underpinned by a central future topic such as energy storage systems for supplying energy for households, industry and system infrastructure. The importance of storage systems for security of supply in all sectors is growing enormously. The storage industry is growing dynamically and has the solutions required. Volta-X will be the ideal energy hub for a new common B2B platform.”
Accompanying the exhibition will be an exciting supporting programme, consisting of both a specialist conference and various forums, where trade visitors from the manufacturing industry, commerce, retail and services will learn new knowledge and expand their know-how on sustainable energy system developments.
According to Dr Nicole Hoffmeister-Kraut, Minister for Economic Affairs, Labour and Tourism of the State of Baden-Württemberg: “Volta-X brings an exhibition to the heart of our state that puts advanced technologies from the energy sector on the agenda; an issue that, in these times, has become more important than ever. Messe Stuttgart and BVES have created a strong partnership to provide the ideal forum for this important topic for the future.”
In conjunction with the eltefa exhibition
Taking place in parallel with Volta-X is the 21st eltefa, the leading European fair for electrical engineering and electronics. Catering to industry, trades and services, eltefa will showcase solutions for smart building connectivity, renewable energies and lighting technology, smart grids, control cabinet solutions for energy distribution and control, e-mobility and security for infrastructure as well as IT for the residential, commercial and industrial sectors. Together with f-cell, the conference for hydrogen and fuel cells, and The Battery Show, Europe’s largest event for the modern battery industry, these four events represent Messe Stuttgart’s portfolio of offerings within the energy sector.
