However, e-Mobility is only environmentally friendly and sustainable when electricity comes from renewable electricity. Energy suppliers and municipal utilities are embracing this megatrend and have begun to build up the required energy infrastructure. The energy sector in particular can benefit from the switch to e-Mobility. For example, we need to develop a complete charging-station infrastructure, expand the distribution grids and build electrical highways. Power consumption will increase, generating demand for additional energy sources such as wind power and Photovoltaic. Above all, we need to optimize the way that regenerative energy sources, storage and e-Mobility interact.
How will these energy infrastructures develop during the "mobility transition"? HANNOVER MESSE 2018 addresses the question at its display area Energy. It is where decision-makers from the energy branch as well as industry, science and politics gather to learn about innovative and efficient energy technologies under the motto "Integrated Energy".
HANNOVER MESSE is the only event that presents all technologies for energy infrastructure: regenerative energy production, energy storage such as power-to-gas, cogeneration, digital energy, virtual power plants, hydrogen and fuel cells, and energy management.
