Expo for decarbonise industry: Platform uniting technology and services for industrial and commercial decarbonization

Messe Düsseldorf expands ENERGY STORAGE EUROPE into an Expo for Decarbonised Industries. The new format will be held from September 20 – 22, 2022 at the fairgrounds in Düsseldorf, Germany – parallel with glasstec, the world-leading trade fair for the glass sector (September 20 – 23). In addition to a wide range of storage solutions, the expo will offer the industrial and commercial sectors a unique range of products and solutions, along with consultation, for decarbonization. The solid progress of this trade fair reflects the transformation in industry, politics, NGOs and society in general.

Climate-neutrality and decarbonization are two mega-trends for the industry of tomorrow. In the German state of North-Rhine Westphalia, Thyssen Krupp Steel is a pioneer with its implementation of a special hydrogen process. Simultaneously, the state and federal governments are pursuing the goal of advancing climate protection and transformation of the energy system with significant investments in line with their Climate Change Act. The Expo for Decarbonised Industries > ENERGY STORAGE forms the perfect platform for industrial and commercial decarbonization in Germany.

“The title “Expo for Decarbonised Industries” addresses many industries whose leading trade fairs are already held at our fairgrounds”, stated Gerrit Nawracala, Project Director of the trade fair. “We are therefore able to find the right answers to the challenges and questions that our customers have about climate protection, energy costs and supply security in a targeted manner.”

Whether it is chemistry, steel, automotive or construction, this structural change affects all industries and will be accelerated by the new political framework conditions. “The energy revolution needs solutions that work on an industrial scale, such as those for producing hydrogen, for example. Therefore we network our partner industries with specialized technological suppliers and service providers”, explained Nawracala.

This specialist trade fair will be supported by the German Engineering Association (VDMA) and its long-time partner, the German Energy Storage System Association.

“Staging the Expo for Decarbonised Industries > ENERGY STORAGE and glasstec simultaneously creates a win-win situation for the industry. Glass manufacturing is an energy-intensive process that also creates high quantities of CO2 emissions. Stricter constraints and increasing CO2 taxes are forcing the glass industry to act, and not just in Germany. This creates a huge demand for solutions for reducing emissions and more energy efficiency. This demand is covered with custom solutions and products from our exhibitors”, commented Nawracala.

In addition to the wide variety in energy storage systems, the Expo for Decarbonised Industries > ENERGY STORAGE will also offer a high-quality conference and forum program on the subjects of research, science and industry which are currently affecting both manufacturers and potential users of energy storage systems.
