An evolutionary leap for ENERGY STORAGE > Expo for Decarbonised Industries

A platform that unites technology and services for industrial and commercial decarbonisation

Düsseldorf, 28 September 2021 – Messe Düsseldorf expands ENERGY STORAGE EUROPE into an Expo for Decarbonised Industries. The new format will be held from 20 to 22 September 2022 at the Düsseldorf trade fair centre in parallel with the world-leading trade fair glasstec. Along with a variety of storage solutions, it offers the industrial and commercial sectors a range of products and solutions, along with consultation, for decarbonisation that has never been seen before. The solid progress of this trade fair reflects the revolution in industry, politics, NGOs and society in general.

Climate-neutrality and decarbonisation are two mega-trends for the industry of tomorrow. In North-Rhine Westphalia, Thyssen Krupp Steel took on a pioneering role with its implementation of a special hydrogen process. Simultaneously, the state government and federal government 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 decarbonisation in Germany.

The title, “Expo for Decarbonised Industries”, addresses many industries whose leading trade fairs are already held on our home ground”, states Gerrit Nawracala, Project Director for the trade fair, and continues: “We are thus able to find the right answers to the challenges and questions that our customers have on climate protection, energy costs and supply security in a targeted way.

Whether the industry be chemistry, steel, automotive or construction, this structural change affects all of them alike 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. To this end, we network our partner industries with specialised technological suppliers and service providers”, states Nawracala. This specialist trade fair will be supported by the German Engineering Association (VDMA) and its partner of many years, the German Energy Storage System Association, a registered association, in expanding its themes.

Holding 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”, affirms Nawracala.

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