In e+e- collisions between 2 and 3 GeV, excited states of rho, omega and phi can be produced directly. Especially the resonances around 2GeV like rho(2000), rho(2150) and \phi(2170) are not fully understood yet. Theorists describe the phi(2170) as a traditional s s-bar state, an s s-bar g hybrid, a tetraquark state, a Lambda Lambda-bar bound state, or a phi KK resonance. The predicted decay widths vary strongly depending on the assumed nature of phi(2170). With energy scan data collected by the BESIII collaboration between 2.0 GeV and 3.08 GeV, the properties of phi(2170) are studied systematically in PWAs of its expected decay modes, such as e+e- -> K+K-pi0pi0, phi eta', phi eta, K+K-, and eta' pi+pi-.
