Markus A.W. Hoehner, CEO of EuPD Research, and Bryan D. Ekus, managing director of the International PV Equipment Association, have co-founded an international alliance for providers of battery and energy storage solutions in the solar photovoltaic (PV) branch.

The new International Battery and Energy Storage Alliance (IBESA) plans to support and enable cooperation between companies from the fields of solar energy production, electrical energy storage and smart grid technologies. Together, IBESA members will create access to professional resources, market intelligence, new networks and emerging markets.

“A strong, industry-wide alliance of global players like the IBESA is crucial in order to unify the fragmented electrical energy storage and smart grid markets, as well as to prepare and sustainably position them for the future,” says Hoehner.
