Hannover. At the upcoming HANNOVER MESSE, the concept of the All Electric Society will be highlighted for the first time and on a large scale with its own arena. The arena will be organized by the ZVEI together with well-known exhibitors. As stated by Gunther Koschnick, Head of Industry at ZVEI, "The aim of the All Electric Society Arena is to discuss the possibilities of an energy supply largely based on renewable energies, and to put them into practice." Within a diverse program of presentations, industry experts, scientists, and politicians will shed light on how the future will be increasingly electric. In addition to being an integral part of the daily themed guided tours, the arena is directly connected to the ZVEI stand located in the middle of Hall 11, stand B58.

Koschnick continues, "The ZVEI target image of the All Electric Society represents the industry's contribution to achieving the agreed climate targets." "Direct electrification of technologies and processes, as well as sector coupling and intelligent storage technologies such as hydrogen and power-to-X, will play an important role in this process. HANNOVER MESSE is therefore well positioned to adopt the All Electric Society as the energy efficiency scenario for a carbon-neutral industrial society."

A carbon-neutral industry is an ideal framework for all initiatives related to this year's main theme, "Energizing a Sustainable Industry". According to Hubertus von Monschaw, Global Director Trade Fair and Product Management HANNOVER MESSE at Deutsche Messe, the All Electric Society Arena will demonstrate how the industry can contribute to achieving climate goals.

The All Electric Society Arena at HANNOVER MESSE is supported by DKE, Eaton, Finder, Harting, Pepperl+Fuchs, PHOENIX CONTACT, Rittal, Schneider Electric, Siemens, Wöhner and Deutsche Messe.
