Solar+Storage NX Fair in Istanbul! Providing Solutions to Turkey’s Solar Energy Resources and Contributing to the Fight Against Climate Change!
As the world and our country struggle with the adverse effects of climate change, such as extreme heat, the Solar+Storage NX Fair will be open for visitors from August 31 to September 2 at the Tüyap Fair and Congress Center in Istanbul. This fair aims to offer solutions that sustainably harness Turkey’s solar energy resources and enable energy storage, reducing energy production costs and contributing to the fight against climate change.
With the support of the auxiliary industry and technology investments, the applications for storage-integrated Renewable Energy Sources (RES) and Solar Power Plants (GES) made to the Energy Market Regulatory Authority (EPDK) are expected to result in investments worth 40-45 billion dollars. The fair is expected to create a minimum of 2 billion USD worth of business volume for the sector, bringing together world energy leaders in Istanbul.
Organized by Solis Fuarcılık in collaboration with the Solar Energy Industrialists and Industry Association (GENSED), the Solar+Storage NX Fair will host over 100 companies from 12 countries, along with more than 10,000 industry professionals from 51 countries across America, Europe, Asia, and Africa. The fair’s 9,500 square meter area will showcase Solar Energy Systems, Energy Storage Technologies, Engineering, Supply and Construction, EPC Projects, Digitalization, Smart Energy Solutions, and E-Mobility product groups. The fair will be a focal point for a diverse range of industry professionals from various sectors, including government institutions, municipalities, energy storage investors, licensed/unlicensed electricity producers, solar energy investors, industrial or commercial facility managers, project developers, and professionals from sectors like agriculture, transportation, and tourism.
The fair will also facilitate international trade partnerships through the Buyer Delegations program, providing opportunities for export-oriented companies to engage in bilateral business meetings with more than 300 international purchasing delegations from target market countries, including CIS countries, the Balkans, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. Additionally, an exclusive qualified Procurement and Trade Delegation of 30 people from 12 African countries is expected to collaborate with Turkish companies for new investment and trade opportunities.
By harnessing solar energy, Turkey will move closer to its zero-carbon target. The General Manager of Solis Fuarcılık and Consulting Services Inc., Feraye Gürel, emphasized that the Solar+Storage NX Fair plays a facilitating role in contributing to the development of solar energy and energy storage solutions, combating climate change, and helping Turkey achieve its zero-carbon target within the scope of the green pact.
The fair will be held alongside the NextGen E-Mobility + Charge Expo & Summit, supported by TEHAD (Turkish Electrical, Electronics and Services Exporters’ Association). The NextGen E-Mobility + Charge Expo & Summit will focus on electric vehicle charging infrastructure and the needs of the E-Mobility industry, with more than 100 participating companies from 12 countries and over 10,000 sector professionals expected to attend.
Various industry leaders have shown great interest and participation in the Solar+Storage NX Fair, including HSA Group, Asunim Group, HENSEL, EFES Enerji, Daxler Energy, JA Solar, Dron Market, Avenof, Alkan Kablo, and many others.
The fair will also host the Solar Challenge, a competition where Roof GES Installation Teams will compete to assemble four solar panels on an aluminum structure in the shortest time.
Overall, the fair aims to contribute to the development of the renewable energy sector, foster collaboration between businesses, consumers, and decision-makers, and provide a platform for generating long-term, lasting partnerships and commercial agreements.
Wärtsilä finalises commissioning of its first two Energy Storage projects in the Philippines
The technology group Wärtsilä has signed multiple energy storage contracts with SMC Global Power Holdings Inc. through its subsidiary, Universal Power Solutions Inc., in the Philippines during 2019-2020. The first two projects, Integrated Renewable Power Hub-Toledo and BCCPP, Limay, Bataan, have achieved final commissioning in May. The projects have a capacity of 20 MW / 20 MWh and 40 MW / 40MWh respectively, and are part of the earlier announced energy storage orders.
These are the first energy storage systems supplied by Wärtsilä to the Philippines. The projects are delivered on an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) basis, and include Wärtsilä’s propriety software and hardware solutions. The systems comprise the company’s GridSolv Max system, a standardised energy storage solution that provides flexible and modular storage for the core hardware assets of the systems, including the batteries, a safety and fire system, and inverters, alongside the advanced GEMS Digital Energy Platform.
“Our partnership with SMC Global Power, a company with technical experience in battery energy storage systems, has enabled us to reach this stage and be ready for operation in record time. This also further demonstrates Wärtsilä’s EPC capabilities in the region, as well as our ability to operate under the challenging restrictions set by the pandemic. These projects showcase our long-term commitment to be present in the Philippines and to continue delivering optimised solutions that support the energy transition in Southeast Asia,” commented Kari Punnonen, Director, Australasia, Wärtsilä Energy.
Wärtsilä is enabling the transition towards a 100% renewable energy future by designing and building flexible systems that integrate renewable energy sources, thermal assets and energy storage. In 2018, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) committed to meeting 23 percent of its primary energy needs from renewables by 2025. The region aims to leverage its abundant wind and solar resources and reduce its reliance on fossil fuels, especially as grid systems are developing and economies growing. Wärtsilä’s energy storage projects will contribute to the reliability necessary to support Southeast Asia’s transition to carbon-free resources.
Wärtsilä’s GEMS Digital Energy platform dynamically manages the integration of intermittent renewables, thereby enabling the grid to become more responsive and stable. The GEMS grid applications include voltage and frequency regulation, reactive power support, spinning reserve, ramp rate optimisation, renewable energy output smoothing, and energy arbitrage.
Reaching this important milestone in the project execution is another endorsement of Wärtsilä’s delivery capabilities. Wärtsilä has a strong presence in Southeast Asia with a total installed capacity of over 9,000 MW, of which 2,000 MW were executed as EPC deliveries, including approximately 300 MW of contracted energy storage systems.
