Program 18. Forum Neue Energiewelt 2017

16.11.2017 – 1. Conference day

Welcome to the 18. Forum Neue Energiewelt

You can register for the conference and gather your conference materials at the reception. Thereafter enjoy a cup of coffee and network with the conference participants.


Opening plenum

During the opening panel we want to discuss with energy experts and political executives. This session will be visionary, surprising and at the same time, concrete.

- What does the market growth throug sector coupling really mean for the industry?
- What are innovative business models for public and private utilities?
- What are the new market and technological innovations in the horizon?
- How can we achieve a successful sector coupling in the new energy world?

Here are the presenters:
• Stefan Drexlmeier, Energiewende Oberland
• Andreas Liebheit, Heraeus
• Volker Quaschning, HTW Berlin
• Juliane Schulze, Vattenfall Innnovation

As political executives we have invited:
• Julia Verlinden, MdB, Bündnis 90/Die Grünen, confirmed
• CDU/CSU
• FDP
• SPD
• Die Linke

The hosts Karl-Heinz Remmers and Tina Barroso from Solarpraxis Neue Energiewelt will welcome you, together with Miriam Janke, the event designer and moderator who will lead these sessions.

You want to get to know the market players, make contacts and exchange business cards?

Then join us at the Business Speed Dating round as a prelude.

Speed-dating is a well-known avenue to bring together potential partners within short exchanges, to see if the chemistry is right. Business speed dating simply translates to companies talking about their projects, plans, offers, basically themselves, to stimulate new ideas within a short time frame.

If you have at least two minutes to spare to talk about your company and yourself, then use this time to pique the interest of the person sitting across from you. You have a further two minutes for exchange and to set a new date.
Thereafter, it is time for a new partner. After half an hour, you would have had the chance to speak to five potential business contacts and have the opportunity to deepen your conversation over the conference days.

The Business-Speed-Dating will be led by Tina Barroso, Solarpraxis Neue Energiewelt.


11.30 - 13.00 first block - 4 parallel Sessions

Forum New Energy World
Grid conversion: Speak to one another – everyone.
German-English translation provided

The grid applies to us all. The energy world can only function when the electricity can be optimally delivered from the supplier to the user. Installation operators, grid operators, storage, load management, digitalisation, and energy suppliers – a large number of players need to work more intensively with one another and cooperate on important common themes. We lay the foundation for this to happen at the Forum Neue Energiewelt. Be a part of it.

These themes will be discussed with experts and led by Miriam Janke, event designer and moderator as well as Lars Waldmann, Energiewende Consult will act as co-moderator.

Forum New Energy World
Energy market 3D

The energy market of the future will be something different from today’s. There are many new ideas for central and decentral elements, there are new technologies and forms of cooperation. We cannot completely predict the upcoming developments. Still it is highly possible that the changes, via new technology and business models, will be accelerated. This session seeks to shed light on the three-dimensional challenges of the energy market, the role of flexibility and mobility and what the 3Ds, decarbonisation, decentralisation and digitalisation, mean for the future of the energy market.
The presenters will provide their impulses. Then, together with the participants, the presenters will work on the pros and cons.

SolarAllianz Storage Day XXL

Production and consumption peaks do not always tally for energy. This has led to the inconvenient tariffs for energy-intensive companies imposed by utilities. The use of bigger energy storage solutions hereby enables a financially optimised potential (peak-shaving). For smaller and mid-size energy suppliers there is an effect akin to contingent purchase in the energy stock market. The complete system also enables grid relief. Many companies are also taking the path of self-production with photovoltaic, wind or CHP to cover their needs to a large degree. Hence the optimisation of self-consumption plays a role with relation to the decrease in feed-in tariffs. Storage can provide the solution for a blackout-free supply.

The storage day XXL by SolarAllianz combines concepts for XXL storage with the strategic interest on the mid-tier, utilities and producers of renewable energy. Companies will present different products and services on the theme of energy storage and will pose critical questions which will lead to discussions.

This satellite is supported and organised by SolarAllianz.

Forum New Energy World
The new energy world is coupling sectors
German-English translation provided

The huge chances and potential coming from the integration of electricity, heat and the transport sector are non-arguable. What happens when we also see the new energy world as “integrated energy”? In other words the integration and linking of all relevant fields? A transitionary thought that will change in the coming years, and in turn influence sectors like construction and trade. Even the heating sector can be thought anew, when we bring into the picture large heat storage, power to x, and seasonal storage. When it comes to the challenges of immediate flexibility, then we look at optimised load management, different storage solutions, and other good options. However when we look at second-and-hour precise flexibility, then things start to look different. When we take integrated energy as market integration, how will the energy world look like?

This session with expert presentations and a discussion round with the public and experts will be led by Tobias Kurth, Energy Brainpool

• Tobias Kurth, Energy Brainpool
• Eike Dehning, dhng Consulting
• Karl Rabe, Windcloud
