The exhibition will remain at Messe München.
Markus Elsässer, chief executive officer at Solar Promotion, said the decision had been taken after coordinating with exhibitors, stating that a “clear majority” of exhibitors were in favour of the postponement.
“Six weeks can make a big difference in the current situation,” he added.
Solar Promotion said the postponement would give additional time for progress on international COVID-19 vaccination programs, while further travel restrictions are anticipated to have been lifted by that date.
Last year’s Intersolar Europe was cancelled entirely in late March as the COVID-19 pandemic intensified, with most other international solar trade shows to have suffered postponements and cancellations.
