WindEnergy Hamburg Set for September


The organizers of the biannual WindEnergy Hamburg event have announced the full schedule of panel discussions and special events for September 24-27 at the Congress Center Hamburg in Germany.

By 2030, the EU wants to have 425 GW of wind energy generation capacity in place, with two thirds contributed by onshore units. To date, however, Europe has installed only 272 GW. To achieve the 2030 goal, it will be necessary to install an average of 33 GW every year.

“We can only reach this by maximizing our expansion efforts. One key means to that end is repowering – replacing wind turbines that have reached the end of their lifespan with more powerful models,” explains Claus Ulrich Selbach, business unit director, maritime and technology fairs and exhibitions, at Hamburg Messe und Congress.

Repowered wind turbines’ higher energy output requires smart grid feed-in management, as well as innovative, high-performance energy storage technologies. For exhibitors addressing this field of expertise, WindEnergy Hamburg will lay out a dedicated Storage Tour.

“The Storage Tour will allow visitors and exhibitors to locate all companies dedicated to this complex topic at a glance, and speak with them directly,” says Andreas Arnheim, director of WindEnergy Hamburg.

A total of 150 conferences and panel discussions featuring renowned speakers will take place during WindEnergy Hamburg. There will be events focused on equipment engineering, regulatory matters, finance, grid engineering, supply chains, digitalization/AI and project planning, among others. The WindEnergy Hamburg team developed this program jointly with partners including the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), WindEurope, VDMA, BWE and companies from the wind energy sector.

Also at WindEnergy Hamburg, 1,500 companies from 40 countries will present their innovations and solutions in 10 exhibition halls to up to 40,000 visitors from 100 different nations. Equipment manufacturers and suppliers representing all stages of the onshore and offshore wind energy value chain will provide a comprehensive overview of the market.
