In the age of the energy transition, the trade fair establishes an own thematic segment
Heating, ventilation and domestic hot water, especially with electrical energy from photovoltaic systems, has rapidly gained relevance in recent months. In addition to the energy turnaround, the war in Ukraine is currently increasing the demand for sustainable technologies that not only protect the climate but also make us independent of individual suppliers. For this reason, Messe Essen, with the support of the HVAC NRW trade association, is establishing a new exhibition area at SHK ESSEN from September 6 to 9, 2022: under the title “Perspective on Electricity, Photovoltaics and Self-Sufficient Heating”, the focus in Hall 2 of the trade fair will be on sustainable heating, ventilation, cooling and heating of drinking water with solar energy. Interested exhibitors can find the registration documents online at www.shkessen.de.
“We assume that the use of electrical energy from photovoltaics will be one of the defining topics at SHK ESSEN. The interest from the trade, but also from planners and engineers is already considerable. For exhibitors, SHK ESSEN is therefore the best possible platform to present their products,” explains Susann Selent, Project Manager of SHK ESSEN. The focus of the exhibition area “Perspective on electricity, photovoltaics and self-sufficient heating” is on the possible combinations of a photovoltaic system with hybrid and modular heating systems, pellet and wood-fired systems, heat pumps, fuel cell heating systems and oil and gas heating systems. In addition, the focus will be on the combination with other electrically powered components up to the connection to the e-mobility sector.
Rising energy prices drive growth in photovoltaics
Rising energy prices, the desire for independence from fossil raw materials and growing environmental awareness are causing an immense increase in demand for photovoltaic systems. At the same time, the levy from the Renewable Energy Sources Act will fall for consumers and companies in Germany in July, making larger solar systems more economical. As a result, the market for manufacturers and service providers is also growing. At SHK ESSEN, they will present, among other things, components and functional parts, energy storage systems, technologies for networking and control, as well as other products and services. Exhibitors will meet professionals from across the trades, such as tradesmen, entrepreneurs, experts, scientists, planners, architects and engineers.
The new exhibition segment is located in the middle of the trade fair in Hall 2, the new information and innovation area of SHK ESSEN. The exhibitors will present themselves within the framework of a visually highlighted joint stand, each on their own presentation area including stand equipment. In addition, they benefit from comprehensive media services on the SHK ESSEN website and in the printed exhibitor directory. In addition to the joint stand, individual stand areas are also available on request.
