glasstec introduces Expo for Decarbonized Industries
October 5, 2021
Messe Düsseldorf expanded Energy Storage Europe into an Expo for Decarbonized Industries. The new format will be held from Sept. 20 – 22, 2022 at the fairgrounds in Düsseldorf, Germany, parallel with glasstec, the trade fair for the glass sector, Sept. 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, say officials.
“The title Expo for Decarbonised Industries addresses many industries whose leading trade fairs are already held at our fairgrounds,” says 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.”
“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,” explains 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,” says 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.
