Energy for production and power grids for electric mobility
Digitization is also transforming the energy industry. Innovative technologies are making our power systems more flexible, intelligently interconnecting different sectors and ushering in new market participants. These key developments will be profiled in depth at HANNOVER MESSE’s Energy show. The show will profile various energy efficiency solutions that will enable industrial companies to achieve enormous savings and make a major contribution to climate protection. It will also present the technologies and steps needed to successfully transition the world to sustainable energy systems.
"Everyone's talking about the mobility transition, but the fact is, our power grids are simply not yet ready for the widespread use of electric cars," explained Köckler. The problem, according to the energy sector, is that electric mobility will result in much higher load peaks than are currently the norm. Moreover, eMobility won’t be able to deliver on its eco-friendly and sustainability promise unless the power it uses comes from renewable sources. Energy companies and municipal utilities around the world are embracing the electric mobility megatrend and its challenges and are starting to build the necessary infrastructure. Initiatives here include providing comprehensive charging station coverage, upgrading power distribution networks and building electrical "super highways". All of which comes down to digital integration – the challenge of intelligently interconnecting renewable energy sources, energy storage facilities and electric vehicles so that they all work together as a coordinated, seamlessly integrated system. "The solutions needed to create power grids that can make electric mobility feasible will all be on show at HANNOVER MESSE," summarized Köckler.
"The digitization of industry, energy and logistics is moving ahead at pace," he added. "And the consequences of this development are not limited to individual industries or markets. They are affecting our society as a whole and indeed the entire global economy and the very nature of work. The opportunities are many, and if you want to seize them and be part of the future, then you can’t afford to miss HANNOVER MESSE. HANNOVER MESSE is the only trade show that provides the big picture on digitization and the integration of industry, energy and logistics."
HANNOVER MESSE – Get new technology first!
The world’s leading trade fair for industrial technology will next be staged from 23 to 27 April 2018 in Hannover, Germany. With its core focus on "Integrated Industry," HANNOVER MESSE is the world's leading showcase for the digitization of production (Industry 4.0) and energy systems (Integrated Energy). The upcoming HANNOVER MESSE will feature six parallel shows: Industrial Automation, Motion & Drives, Digital Factory, Energy, Industrial Supply and Research & Technology. Mexico will star as the Partner Country of HANNOVER MESSE 2018.
CeMAT – world's leading trade fair for intralogistics and supply chain management
The parent CeMAT is held every two years in Hannover, Germany, right alongside HANNOVER MESSE. CeMAT will next be staged from 23 to 27 April 2018, when it will cover every aspect of logistics, e.g. energy-saving forklifts and industrial trucks, sophisticated, fully automated handling systems, cranes, hoists, aerial working platforms, rack and warehousing systems as well as the latest in control systems and logistics IT. Also on the agenda will be Auto ID systems, robotic logistics and packaging technology.
