11-12 April 2018, Berlin. Join us for the tenth annual IDTechEx event focused on providing insight into Off Grid Energy Independence: Energy Harvesting Systems 1kW-10MW. For zero emission distributed energy, the event brings together the complete value chain, from technology developers to integrators to end-users, providing insight on market trends, latest products and emerging technology toolkits.

New: Networking match making platform - connect with attendees and organise meetings in advance of the event

Event Focus

  • A complete technical and marketing overview of Off Grid Energy Independence and High Power Energy Harvesting Systems, now and in future. Market drivers, market forecasts, technology roadmaps, new breakthrough inventions, winners, losers.
  • A focus on commercialization: End-users and integrators from a diverse range of markets present their needs, requirements and case studies
  • Allied technologies from energy storage options such as the new laminar superconductors, relevant low power electronics and wireless sensors
  • Network with potential adopters/end-users and see the current products and state of the technology at the event exhibition.

Hear what exhibitors think of the printed electronics industry. Watch Now.

Application and Technology focus

  • Self-powered automatic road de-icing, lighting and surface light arrays for signage, charging electric vehicles in motion, zero emission cooking, heating, cooling even in emerging nations, lower electricity costs, better service, emissions elimination, better resilience against terrorism, natural disasters.
  • Market will be much bigger than people realise. Single mode, microgrid, minigrid, island formats. Off grid vs fringe of grid. Why the new energy independent electric vehicles through to planned energy independent electric ships are the same technology. Why many grid suppliers are backing this.
  • Merit of the most important technology developments from world leading companies, research institutes, new start-ups and the leading market researchers in the field.
  • Energy harvesting technologies, including photovoltaic, electrodynamic, triboelectric, thermoelectric, piezoelectric, and multi modal versions minimising or eliminating energy storage.
  • Dramatically reinvented versions such as solar, piezo, thermal and electrodynamic roads, solar windows, new downsizable blue energy, Airborne Wind Energy AWE where many developers target off grid now.

The IDTechEx Show!

Off Grid Energy Independence: Energy Harvesting Systems is co-located alongside a series of synergistic events on electric vehicles, energy storage, sensors, IOT etc. Each of these is a full two-day executive conference co-located with a common exhibition. We co-locate these events because there is strong overlap across these topics, exposing you to the full relevant supply chains and customer and supplier bases, saving you time and money from attending separate events.

Good balance of technical information to actual examples of companies/products.

It was a great event. I enjoyed the exhibition. Very cool, very cutting edge stuff


I found it outstanding in term of organisation and quality of the topics.


I found the conference very interesting!
