To achieve this goal, the VDMA (Mechanical Engineering Industry Association) Power-to-X for Applications work group and Messe Düsseldorf have now signed an agreement. The trade fair is aimed specifically at industry and commerce - GIFA, METEC, THERMPROCESS and NEWCAST support the event.
VDMA will contribute its expertise and contacts within the industry to strengthen the trade fair’s green hydrogen and Power-to-X offer. Power-to-X for Applications will be involved in a number of ways, including shaping the decarbXpo trade fair’s programme and forums, and will also be present at the fair with its own stand.
Hydrogen and P2X technologies decisive for industrial decarbonisation
The VDMA has been a partner of numerous industrial goods fairs at the Düsseldorf location for years. These include the world's leading trade fairs for energy-intensive industries such as glasstec and The Bright World of Metals, which results in interesting synergies for companies in the glass, foundry and metalworking industries by visiting decarbXpo. But other key players in the industries, such as wire, Tube and VALVE WORLD EXPO, also belong to the energy-intensive industries.
“The new partnership shows that the machine and plant construction sector takes its responsibility for ensuring the industry becomes climate neutral seriously. The Power-to-X technologies presented at decarbXpo are a decisive element in reducing CO2 emissions in energy-intensive fields of application in the industry. The trade fair thus contributes significantly to implementing the greenhouse gas reduction targets,” says Peter Müller-Baum, Managing Director of Power-to-X for Applications, confidently.
The decarbXpo cooperates with various trade fairs and thus brings storage providers and experts for energy efficiency together with industrial and commercial storage technology users. “The cooperation with VDMA is an excellent addition to our existing partnerships in the industry, as it strengthens the trade fair’s hydrogen and Power-to-X segment quite decisively,” adds Bernd Jablonowski, Executive Director at Messe Düsseldorf.
New opportunities for machine construction
“The machine and plant construction sector is developing necessary and sustainable technologies to counteract climate change. Converting green electricity into other energy carriers via Power-to-X is a key technology that will help the industry and the traffic sector become climate neutral, which is a significant contribution. In their function as energy storage systems, hydrogen and other Power-to-X solutions furthermore contribute to securing the energy sector’s supply,” explains Peter Müller-Baum. “With Messe Düsseldorf and the Expo for Decarbonised Industries > ENERGY STORAGE, we have now found a strong partner with whom we can develop a corresponding trade fair.”
