We – people of the earth – can no longer postpone realizing that we occupy a very small planet. Human population is growing geometrically; we are extracting more each day from our tiny vessel within a vast solar system. We must urgently address the obvious fact that our growing thirst for energy already poses a huge threat to future generations. We do not own this planet, just like we cannot own its air, water, or sunshine. We wrongly believe we are the masters of the earth. The industrial revolution has made it possible for us to move mountains and/or make deserts out of lakes and living biosystems. If we continue living as we did in the 20th century, our children are bound to inherit polluted and overexploited lands.

Sustainable energy politics, maintaining continuity and security of energy resources has become an urgent matter for all countries. We are all in the same boat. Concerns over an imminent climate change have increased. It is difficult to ignore the consequences of global warming: storms, “heat waves,” “black-outs” seen at more frequent rates. Are we not amply warned yet?

Current energy systems still rely heavily on fossil fuel resources! We burn more coal and oil every passing day. We must prepare for “our sustainable future” with much less fossil fuels. Energy storage is the crux of any solution in the secure path to sustainability. EnerSTOCK2018 will be offering extensive topics on energy storage to give answers on why, which, how, when and where energy storage can be implemented.

This was our motivation when we chose the motto for EnerSTOCK2018 : “The Earth Cannot Wait!”.

We cannot allow our boat to founder…

We – with help from all nations’ of the world – shall start a new energy revolution!

We cannot delay using more energy storage technologies.

Join us at EnerSTOCK 2018 in increasing awareness on energy storage and climate change!
