Some 4,000 companies from the general engineering, electrical, digital and energy industries will showcase solutions for the production and energy supply of the future at Hannover Messe. Dr. Robert Habeck, Germany's Federal Minister for Economics and Climate Action, is set to visit Hannover on the second day of the flagship event for dialog with representatives of industry on taking the path to climate-friendly production.
The Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action intends to support large companies with climate change mitigation contracts on a scale of billions of euros for the transition to climate-friendly production. Besides this, the energy system is to be restructured, with expanded production and use of renewable energies and modernization of the power plant network. New-build power plants must be hydrogen-ready and thus need to be planned accordingly right from the outset.
Hydrogen is one of five trending topics at Hannover Messe, with over 500 companies showcasing hydrogen and fuel technologies at the Hannover Exhibition Center. Other overarching topics include CO2-neutral production, artificial intelligence, energy management and Industrie 4.0.
This year's lead topic is "Industrial Transformation – Making the Difference."
