At HANNOVER MESSE 2015, a wind energy trade fair which Deutsche Messe has been organising since 2009 will be taking place. The Wind trade fair, which cooperates with Motion, Drive & Automation and the industrial automation and industrial subcontracting sectors, is sponsored by Power Systems Association within the German Engineering Federation (VDMA) and the German Wind Energy Association (BWE).
HANNOVER MESSE takes place from 13th to 17th April 2015 in Hannover, Germany. India will be the Partner Country at the Wind trade fair. To meet it’s expected 100GW wind power capacities by 2022, India’s power networks will need to be reinforced and the approval process expedited. Along it’s 7,500km coastline, the country is also looking to greatly increase the number of offshore installations.
“The business and public policy setting at HANNOVER MESSE provides the wind energy sector with an ideal platform to discuss the latest challenges regarding renewable forms of energy on an international stage. Both technological innovations and system integration play a major part here,” said Marc Siemering, Senior Vice President, Deutsche Messe.
Felix Losada, Vice Director of the Corporate Communications Dept. Nordex SE, comments: “We are routinely represented at HANNOVER MESSE and particularly enjoy the showcase provided by the biennial Wind trade fair. For us HANNOVER MESSE is German industry’s window to the world market – something Nordex does not want to miss out on. So we naturally plan to be back for the upcoming event.”
"[HANNOVER MESSE represents] the right forum for the wind power industry to demonstrate its dynamism and significance for the energy transition, given the event’s key role in terms of business and the public policy debate. For leading manufacturers to be able to secure their position – above all, manufacturers from Denmark, Germany and Spain – Europe needs to develop a clear strategy that can guarantee sustained investment in innovations and new markets,” said Hermann Albers, BWE President.
Gerd Krieger, Deputy Executive Board Member, VDMA Power Systems, commented: “Here the wind power industry will underscore its key role in the energy mix and above all for the transition to renewable forms of energy. A key theme in this regard involves future decisions to be made by German policymakers in terms of the energy transition and what a future Power Market Design 2.0 is going to look like, thus creating a reliable framework for investors. HANNOVER MESSE represents an ideal political platform to discuss all of these factors with the various stakeholders.”
