Messe Düsseldorf postpones ESE 2020 - New date set


ENERGY STORAGE EUROPE 2020 will now take place from 16 to 18 March 2021 due to the effects of coronavirus/Covid-19.

With this announcement of the new dates, Messe Düsseldorf is reacting promptly to the postponement of the leading trade fair for the global energy storage industry. This was agreed in consultation with the trade fair advisory board and all partners involved in order to counteract the increasingly dynamic developments regarding the possible spread of the corona virus.

"It is very important for us to announce this new date which will allow exhibitors, visitors and the media to make reliable plans," explains Erhard Wienkamp, Managing Director of Messe Düsseldorf GmbH, and adds: "Our partners can trust us to act responsibly and calmly even in difficult situations."

As ENERGY STORAGE EUROPE’s partner, BVES - Bundesverband Energiespeicher Systeme e.V. - fully supports the decision. "We expressly welcome the fact that Messe Düsseldorf had the courage to take this step and that we are now collectively providing a clear perspective for 2021. Planning security is entirely in the interests of the energy storage industry. In our opinion, ENERGY STORAGE EUROPE has reacted cautiously, sensibly and correctly, taking all advantages and disadvantages into consideration," says Urban Windelen, CEO of BVES.

Bernhard Rill, Vice President Gustav Klein GmbH & Co KG and Chairman of the Exhibition Advisory Board underlines: "In the current situation, the decision to move ENERGY STORAGE EUROPE to March 2021 was resolute and correct. We are now concentrating our efforts on the design and implementation of the next enhanced edition of ENERGY STORAGE EUROPE". Here the system concept is emphasized as a platform for everything concerning energy storage. Complete systems, grid connection, production, development, testing and service can be found at ESE. Thus, a comprehensive and well-rounded spectrum of information and innovations is presented to all the visitors.

Existing contracts with Messe Düsseldorf remain valid for the new date. The same applies to visitor tickets already purchased. If visitors have any queries, they can send an e-mail to

The changeover of the exhibitor database and ticket shop will take place one step at a time. In the meantime, everyone involved is working on a solution as quickly as possible. You will also find the answers to other relevant questions with the current status on our website
