Infrastructure Forum

This forum highlights infrastructures that are relevant for the energy industry or are becoming increasingly so. Current and future requirements for grids, storage, smart cities and e-mobility will be discussed here.

You can look forward to interesting presentations and exciting discussion panels, which will be held in both English and German. For program items in German, we offer simultaneous translation into English.

The expert forums are open and free of charge. You don’t need to register, you only need a ticket for the trade fair.

By 2032, every electricity meter in Germany must be digital: Intelligent power grids are therefore no longer dreams of the future, but already require technologies that make the exchange of information between power generation, consumers and storage systems reliable and secure.

But what do such distribution grids look like in concrete terms? How can properties be smartly digitized and alternative energy sources be included? And how could prosumers participate in the smart grid?

VDE experts will provide answers and food for thought for the smart energy grid of today at E-world's Infrastructure Forum!

The World Energy Council - Germany invites you to explore the future of the energy system, to understand energy transition and how it is implemented worldwide and to learn about new technology solutions. Which are important and uncertain issues on the energy agenda in Germany and other regions in the world? How is the energy transition perceived and what are priorities by decision makers around the world? What are current development in Hydrogen, CCS, digitalization and other important topics linked to a sustainable future? To what extent is the environment favourable for innovations and start ups? Meet the experts of the World Energy Council and start-up representatives and discuss with them the future of energy transition.

In recent years, there has been a clear trend in the real estate industry away from individual building developments toward larger developments with several buildings and large contiguous plots of ground. The quarter network is on everyone's lips: Corresponding quarter solutions are therefore being discussed for supply and disposal. These seem to have an optimal size to realize the politically demanding climate protection goals, to serve the new demands of end customers on sharing economy approaches and at the same time to establish new business models for energy suppliers.

How can the collaboration between the various parties involved in the new asset class of neighborhoods work? What opportunities and challenges will energy suppliers face in the neighborhood of the future? And how can geodata-based algorithms - in the form of a digital twin of the real world - be used to develop a sound basis for decision-making?

What challenges and opportunities do new technologies and the energy transition bring for the power system? How can digital twins help optimizing the power grid? How can large consumers optimize their electricity consumption? And what advantages does power-to-heat offer for the power system?

These and other exciting questions will be answered in this event hosted by our program partner DFBEW. You can also look forward to a panel on "Digitization as a Vector of Energy Efficiency", which will discuss micro-level considerations and macro-level challenges.

Intelligent metering systems and smart meter gateways are a central component of the digital network infrastructure. They ensure communication in the grid and form the anchor for data protection and data security. While more and more energy comes from volatile and decentralized sources, the networking of generators and consumers is increasing, and the heat and transport sectors are becoming increasingly electrified, the risk of blackouts and cyberattacks is also rising. Digital and intelligent technologies offer solutions for a flexible, secure and stable overall system and make sector coupling possible in the first place.

Our cities should become smart and climate-neutral at the same time. However, the implementation of smart city projects is usually technically complex, thematically diverse, and financially and politically challenging. Small and medium-sized municipalities quickly reach their limits. Yet they are the ones who can benefit from smart solutions like LPWAN.

Why are IoT solutions so useful for small municipalities? How can intelligent street lighting pave the way to the "low carbon city"? And why does the standard process for device communications provide the foundation for smart city? This block of topics at the Infrastructure Forum at E-world 2022 presents the basics for Smart City applications.

The challenges of the energy transition are diverse: Among other things, electricity generation and consumption are unevenly distributed regionally, electricity consumption will grow, and the yields from photovoltaics and wind power fluctuate depending on the weather.

This program block discusses whether and how battery storage can be a solution here for integrating renewables and balancing grid fluctuations. The focus will also be on following questions: How can battery storage systems reduce electricity costs for industrial companies while supporting the energy transition? And how is the market for grid-connected battery storage systems (BESS) changing due to regulatory changes?

E-mobility is essential for saving CO2 emissions: This program block not only provides a general overview of the current e-mobility market - specific topics such as CO2 monitoring at charging stations or vehicle grid integration will also be discussed: Which trends and players play a role in these areas? What does this new "ecosystem" of the energy and mobility sectors mean for the European market?
