The OFF-GRID Expo + Conference (OEC) is a unique, international event that takes place annually in Augsburg/Germany. With its interactive and varied programme, the infotainment format offers a very practical exchange of experience and know-how. The international off-grid community (manufacturers, users, investors, trade, service providers, universities, start-ups, NGOs, etc.) from around 50 countries meet here. In 2021, the OEC is planned to be face-to-face again with digital add-ons on December 2-3. The 2-day conference programme is supported by ARE (Alliance for rural electrification). The trade fair will focus on photovoltaics, small wind, small hydropower, hybrid systems, mini/microgrid, system design, storage technology and off-grid water. In addition, the OFF-GRID TechDay on the previous day will give visitors the opportunity to take part in product and service training from exhibitors.
