Energy storage: indispensable for an energy transition

Why this theme

The energy landscape will change dramatically in the coming years. The energy transition, necessary to prevent climate change, will result in a rapidly growing part of renewable energy. As a result, our energy system is changing from demand to supply, and that supply is no longer predictable and constant. *)
Sustainable and decentralized energy generation requires more and more attention, for example in the form of solar panels and wind farms. Energy storage on a large scale is inseparably linked to this ambition.
The more Smart Grids are introduced, the more important the layout of the electricity network will become. Here too, energy storage forms an important element within this theme. Storage of electrical energy requires conversion, which means that a part of the energy is lost.
*) FME Visiedocument Energieopslag 2017.

A discussion has started within INTELEC about the direction in which energy generation, energy distribution and energy consumption will develop. Examples are energy storage, hydrogen, heat networks and electric vehicles and transport.

This year INTELEC wants to place the themes within this discussion about the energy transition. That is why this theme has been chosen. Also during previous symposia, the classic INTELEC themes have been developed in this direction.
On the basis of the programme it becomes clear which topics these are and a choice can be made.


IEEE INTELEC© Conference (International Communications Energy Conference) is an important international forum for science and engineering of energy systems for originally information and communication technologies. Technical lectures present the needs and trends in the areas of energy conversion, energy storage, reliability and energy infrastructure. Topics include DC and AC systems, batteries, energy architectures, inverters, fuel cells, grounding, physical and thermal designs.
INTELEC95 Foundation organizes the annual Energy Symposium for the same purpose, but at national level.

INTELEC95 Symposium in 2019

The INTELEC95 Foundation is already working for the seventh time on the organization of the successful INTELEC95 Energy Symposium that will be held on Tuesday 16 April 2019.
For the location is again chosen for the Jungle Pavilion in Ouwehands Dierenpark in Rhenen. An innovative zoo that is the first in the Netherlands to have the popular panda bears and which we will definitely visit.
Keep this day free and take part in this unique symposium with inspiring lectures by renowned speakers from users, industry and science.
The symposium will also present feedback on the main developments and innovations in the programme of the international INTELEC conference to be held in Turin in October this year.


The symposium generally focuses on three fundamental fields of activity: power electronics, energy storage and intelligent distribution networks.
These activities in turn shape the base on which the continuity in energy supply for telecommunication and information technology is based. Sustainability and the ability to quickly recover after a calamity are important incentives.

  • Storage of energy (such as batteries, supercapacitors and fly wheels, which form the heart of the continuity management within the power supply),
  • Energy generation (such as fuel cells, wind and solar energy),
  • Energy conversion (such as DC-DC converters, DC-AC converters),
  • Distribution of direct current and alternating current at a higher level than usual, energy supply architecture and the available hard- and software,
  • Energy network structures and architectures, in particular Smart Grids,
  • Sustainability, green energy, energy management.

The topics space conditioning, electrical safety, Electric Magnetic Compatibility (EMC), grounding and lightning protection, electromagnetic pulse (EMP), are directly linked.

More topics in the broad sense that also fall under the scope of the symposium can be found under the scope on the page about the Foundation.

Target audience

The Symposium is especially important for companies and institutes engaged in research, development, installation, management and maintenance of energy supply systems by and for the subject area.



Companies are given the opportunity to profile and promote themselves at the event by sponsoring the symposium. There are different possibilities to sponsor the INTELEC95 Symposium 2019. It is possible to sign-up as a Platinum Sponsor, a Golden Sponsor or a Silver Sponsor.  More information about sponsoring the symposium can be found on the page Sponsoring.

This website and newsletters will inform you about the developments regarding the technical program.

If there are any questions or if you want more information about the INTELEC95 foundation or symposia please don’t hesitate to contact us.


Our sponsors will support the technical program with an industrial exhibition showing the latest developments in the field of energy storage, energy converters and the design of infrastructure integration. Industrial sectors confronted with the challenges of designing and operating high quality ICT and other energy technical infrastructures will find here a large and useful source of technical knowledge and product information. It is also a good opportunity to have discussions with technical representatives of various companies.

Feedback INTELEC©

During the symposium feedback will be given on the most important developments and innovations that were presented at the last International Telecommunications Energy Conference in Torino, Italy.
