Hannover Emission Zone
Besides being home to many of the world's foremost trade fairs, Hannover is also known for its environmental awareness. On 1 January 2008, Hannover joined Berlin and Cologne in an effort to lower the health risks associated with motor vehicle exhaust (especially diesel exhaust particulates) in their respective city centers. To accomplish this, Hannover has established an official "Emission Zone" roughly defined by the expressways (Schnellwege) encircling the city center.
The Emission Zone is indicated by signs reading "Umwelt-Zone". Only vehicles which meet certain minimum requirements are permitted to enter the Emission Zone. To demonstrate compliance, an official permit (disc-shaped sticker) must be displayed on every vehicle's windshield.
If you plan to arrive at HANNOVER MESSE 2016 with your electric vehicle you can charge your vehicle at one of our charging points during your visit. These are located at the parking place 4 (North Entrance 1; access via the North Avenue; see diagram).
To provide as many visitors as possible to charge their vehicles, the GfV (Gesellschaft für Verkehrsförderung mbH) is willing to unplug your vehicle from the power supply as soon as it is charged. For this purpose we request you to fill in the form "declaration to supply isolation" and give it to the staff on site.
To enter, despite the strong arrival traffic to the appropriate charging points we ask you to download under the following link http://ladescheibe.e-auto.tv the loading disk, to print it colored and to place it in the windshield. Here you can also leave the other interested parties at a loading station an information, how long your car still has to load.
