E-world 2018

6.-8.2.2018 Essen, Germany

E world energy & water has once more provided impressive proof of its position as Europe’s leading trade fair in the energy industry. Digitalisation, flexibilisation and decentralisation were the defining subjects on which the over 25,000 visitors from 73 nations obtained information and exchanged ideas. The focus was on the integration of electricity and heat, energy-efficient buildings and electrical transport into an intelligent, flexible and optimized overall system. At our booth in hall 3 we presented our latest products and innovations to the visitors.
