Messe Düsseldorf and VDMA: decarbXpo to Become Leading Trade Fair for Power-to-X Applications
Thursday, February 24, 2022
The Expo for Decarbonized Industries > ENERGY STORAGE (decarbXpo) is evolving to become the leading trade fair for Power-to-X technologies and products. To achieve this goal, the VDMA (German Mechanical Engineering Industry Association) Power-to-X for Applications work group and Messe Düsseldorf have now signed an agreement. The coming event will take place at the trade fair centre in Dusseldorf/DE from 20–22 September 2022, in parallel to glasstec, the world’s leading trade fair for the glass industry.
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.
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. 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 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.
The Expo for Decarbonized Industries > ENERGY STORAGE is the platform for climate neutrality in industry and commerce. The trade show presents the most comprehensive range of energy storage systems and solutions for industrial and commercial decarbonization. The conference program combines hands-on expert forums with EUROSOLAR's world-leading scientific International Energy Storage Conference (IRES).
VDMA Power-to-X for Applications is a cross-industry platform for exchange, communication, and cooperation in the P2X community. It involves all important stakeholders, from the development of manufacturing processes through the production of synthetic fuels and raw materials using Power-to-X technologies to the end customer. With its activities, it promotes a holistic and technology-open approach to the transformation of energy systems, and raises public awareness of environmentally friendly energy use and mobility.
