Businesses and governments worldwide are engaged in the quest for a reliable and competitive energy supply to power future growth. Germany in particular faces massive upheaval and technical challenges as it seeks to implement its decision to switch from nuclear energy to greener alternatives.
Energy, the leading tradeshow for energy technology that runs from 8 to 11 April 2013 under the umbrella of Hannover Messe, will therefore focus closely on products and solutions for achieving this energy system transformation. The displays at the Energy show will span all aspects of conventional and renewable energy production and supply, from generation and transmission to distribution and storage, taking in the latest energy IT and market mechanisms and smart grid technologies.
"What we're seeing now is the complete technological, political and commercial transformation of an entire industry. This is a major challenge - for which the exhibitors at the Energy show will be presenting pioneering solutions," said Oliver Frese, Deutsche Messe's Senior Vice President in charge of Hannover Messe. "Germany's ability to successfully achieve its energy system transformation will depend to a very large extent on having the right political and regulatory settings. Hannover Messe is the ideal platform for the political and economic dialogue this requires. With its high public and media profile, it is the perfect place to present visions for the energy mix of the future to a global audience."
