In June, it was time for the annual solar industry exhibition. Many of us from the Renewable Energies class of 2014 were really excited to go there and see the new technological progress it had to offer. We took the 8 hour long bus ride because our wallets did not allow flight tickets, but it did not stop us from going there anyway. Once in Munich, we were stunned by the large number of companies at the exhibition. There were over a thousand exhibitors waiting to show off their solar panels or battery storage systems. Heliatek, Tesla Motors, SMA, Pheasun, Qcells, REC, and the list continues. To cover a lot of ground, we decided to all split up, walk around, talk to different people, ask questions, gather information and meet up by bumping into each other.
