The Swedish Solar Expo sees a steadily increasing number of visitors and exhibitors, each year. In October of 2019, the exhibition was organized for the sixth consecutive year, with a record-breaking number of attendants.
In total, The Swedish Solar Expo hosted more than 1 000 visitors and roughly 50 exhibitors from all over Europe and, in some cases, the world. It has become one of the largest exhibitions on cleantech in Sweden, making the city of Uppsala an important meeting place for businesses, property owners and decision makers looking for inspiration, innovation and knowledge exchange on solar power and energy storage technology. It is a platform for dialogue on the latest cutting-edge technology and projects, political trends and current challenges facing the field. A new addition to this year’s exhibition was a parallel agenda showcasing green investments.
The possibilities to network and attend workshops and lectures ensure that there are many beneficial connections made between representatives from academia and the business sector as well as the public sector. This year over a third of the exhibitors travelled in from abroad, which is a good indicator of the maturity of the Swedish solar power market.
About the exhibition
The Swedish Solar Expo has been arranged on an annual basis since 2014 by the organizations Mälardalen Energy Agency and STUNS Energy. Initially, the target group was energy and property industries, but today it creates value for those interested in sustainable energy technologies and systems.
