HANNOVER MESSE focusing on ‘Industrial Transformation’ 31 May 2022

As the world experiences a turning point in international economic and energy policy – which brings with it rising energy prices, disrupted supply chains and a major impact on global industrial production – a growing number of manufacturers are doing their part to combat climate change. The world needs speedy solutions in this area and HANNOVER MESSE 2022 says it is the ideal setting.

From 30th May to 2nd June 2022, some 2,500 companies will display their technologies for the factory and energy systems of the future at the Hannover Exhibition Centre. Under the lead theme of ‘Industrial Transformation’, exhibitors will demonstrate how connected production facilities can operate more efficiently and conserve resources, as well as how to generate and transmit energy sustainably.

“In view of the current global political situation, the topics at HANNOVER MESSE are more relevant than ever,” reported Dr Jochen Köckler, CEO of Deutsche Messe, at the HANNOVER MESSE preview event. “At the heart of the matter is how we can ensure the security of supply and growth in a dynamically changing world – politically, environmentally, and economically – while counteracting climate change. Innovative technologies will play a key role in this.”

When it comes to CO2 neutral production and energy security in Europe, renewable energies and green hydrogen play a key role. Many companies already lead the way with concrete solutions. For example, HANNOVER MESSE exhibitor Bosch created a hydrogen cycle at its Industry 4.0 facility that produces green hydrogen for industrial processes. Because of the current energy supply debate, the topic of hydrogen is gaining further importance.

Europe is also striving to become climate neutral by the middle of the century. More and more companies have set ambitious goals and are in the process of completely converting their production and services. HANNOVER MESSE exhibitors are able to supply the necessary technologies.

In addition to the exhibits at the show, attendees can look forward to a first rate supporting programme. The four conference stages cover topics such as automation, the Cloud and infrastructure, analytics and data management, digital platforms, robotics, IT security, Artificial Intelligence, renewable energies, green hydrogen, energy efficient and CO2 neutral production, digital energy management, the circular economy and much more. The complete programme will not only be available to visitors on-site, but will also stream simultaneously via the HANNOVER MESSE website.
