E-world 2020: Using smart city concepts for sustainable living
The decision makers of the European energy industry will be meeting between 11 and 13 February to discuss ideas for the future of energy

Once again, Essen will be assuming the role of the most important meeting place for representatives of the European energy sector. E-world energy & water at Messe Essen is inviting exhibitors and visitors to come together to discuss all things energy.

Around 750 exhibitors will be showcasing products, technologies and services from areas such as IT, energy-related services and energy trading to more than 25,000 trade visitors. And the convention is becoming increasingly international: In 2019 a total of 73 nations were represented.

E-World Special
en:former will, once again, be reporting from the venue between 11 to 13 February 2020, giving you access to all the action. We have a number of special reports planned, which will focus on innovations, trends and congresses, so stay en:formed!

As last year, the main topic of the show will be ‘Smart City and Climate Solutions’, because cities play a dual role when it comes to climate change. On the one hand, they can be the proverbial birthplace of innovative climate protection ideas and, on the other hand, they are a major source of emissions.

Innovations for sustainable change

Digitisation is key to the climate-friendly design of cities, with a core aim being to integrate electricity and heat, electrical transport and efficient buildings into a single system – which is then referred to as a smart city. Exhibitors at E-world will be presenting innovative solutions for expediting this sustainable change and promoting smart infrastructure.

In addition to the exhibition, a supporting programme, comprising a three-day E-world Congress and four specialist forums titled ‘Energy Transition’, ‘Smart Tech’, ‘Trading and Finance’ and ‘Innovation’, will afford experts the opportunity to shed light on current trends in the energy industry.

The Energy Leadership Meeting offers an additional platform for discussion, traditionally taking place on the day before the trade fair officially opens, i.e. on February 10. This year, Markus Krebber, CFO of RWE AG, will join representatives from the energy sector, industry and politics to discuss developments and challenges in the industry.

Another hot topic: the future of the industry

The trade fair will also be casting a glance at the energy world of the future. The innovation module, sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy, offers start-ups the opportunity to present their innovative concepts and solutions, thereby inspiring potential investors.

Above all, in addition to innovative ideas, the industry needs motivated specialists who are keen to help shape the future of energy. Once again, as is traditional on the third day of the fair, the Career Forum will be giving students, graduates and young professionals the opportunity to network with representatives of the energy industry and find out more about relevant professions and career opportunities.
