The E-world team is shortening the waiting time until the next edition of Europe's leading trade fair for the energy industry. From October to December, an informative digital program will take place on current topics such as energy storage, gas markets, the heat transition or even the future of energy supply. In the online offer of E-world at https://community.e-world-essen.com/en, interested parties can participate in the events free of charge. "With these lectures and speakers from practice, we offer the energy industry real added value," says Stefanie Hamm, Managing Director of E-world GmbH. Her management colleague Sabina Großkreuz adds: "The digital program thus gives a foretaste of the topics of the next E-world, which will be held at Messe Essen from February 20 to 22, 2024."
The first of these will be the E-world Lunch Breaks on four days in October under the title "Battery empty - energy storage! Sustainable energy system through energy storage". This will analyze the potential of energy storage systems in the application areas of electricity, gas and heat:
- On October 16, Michael Schnakenberg, CEO of Commeo GmbH, will speak on the question "How do we make electricity prices and energy consumption manageable with battery storage?"
- October 17 is dedicated to the topic "Carnot Battery - an efficient and cost-effective solution for sector coupling". Dr. Andrea Gutierrez, group leader of thermal systems with phase change from the Institute of Technical Thermodynamics at the German Aerospace Center (DLR), will speak.
- Hydrogen will dominate the lunch breaks on October 18. Then Sebastian Bleschke, managing director of Initiative Energien Speichern e.V., will provide information on "Storing hydrogen - that much is certain."
- Beatrice Schulz, Head of Markets and Technologies at the Energy Storage Systems Association (BVES), and Simon Steffgen, Industry and Trade Officer at BVES e.V., will focus on "Energy storage systems: market development, legal framework and challenges" on October 20.
The Lunch Breaks will run from 12 to 1 p.m. each day. Afterwards, participants will have the opportunity to ask their questions.
Webinar "Transition Gap: What to do with existing assets?"
A multi-billion euro undertaking is the decommissioning and repurposing of existing infrastructure assets. The risks, opportunities and holistic approaches here will be explained in the "Transition Gap" webinar on Oct. 25 at noon. Julien Halfon, Head of Pensions at BNP Paribas Asset Management, and Rüdiger König, Executive Advisor Energy Transition Solutions at Jacobs, will present a comprehensive approach in this English-language event.
E-world Kick-off in November
The digital conference "E-world Kick-off" in November 2023 is the start of preparations for the next attendance fair in February 2024. High-profile speakers from Uniper, the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Protection, MVV Energie or the German Association of Energy and Water Industries, among others, will speak over three days about the future role of the state in energy supply (November 7, 10 a.m.), global gas markets in transition (November 8, 10 a.m.) and ways to a successful heat transition (November 9, 10 a.m.). All three events will be interpreted.
Low-voltage grid is the topic of the last webinar in 2023
The E-world digital program for 2023 will close with a webinar on the topic of "Power Quality in the Low-Voltage Grid." On December 4, starting at 12 p.m., Stephan Kornprobst, Key Account Manager, DEHN SE, and Lukas Rappel, Product Manager, DEHN SE, will explain how energy supply companies and power grid operators can or must contribute to ensuring the smooth operation of power grids and preventing damage to their own grids.
