Hamburg, April 11, 2021 – Following a one-year break, Hannover Messe is now back: the world's number one industrial fair is taking place digitally from Monday 12 April to Friday 16 April 2021. In keeping with the tagline "Future. Made in Hamburg", the Hanseatic city will be presenting itself in front of an international audience as a leading hydrogen location. In addition, Hamburg will be providing a foretaste of the 2021 ITS World Congress – the international industry platform for intelligent mobility and transport networks of the future, which is scheduled to take place in Hamburg this October.
Throughout the week, visitors can find up-to-date information, background stories and events relating to hydrogen and mobility as well as gain access to livestreams with key stakeholders from Hamburg at www.hannovermesse.de/exhibitor/his-hamburg-invest-service/S560991
During the Hannover Messe, Hamburg will be presenting itself as an innovative region and major hydrogen location in the heart of Europe, with innovative solutions and projects along the entire value chain to be showcased as part of the event. And indeed, a recent OECD study has confirmed that Northern Germany is especially suited to developing a green hydrogen economy: the region boasts not only unique locational advantages for generating renewable energies, but also provides great potential for the sale of hydrogen – especially to local industrial companies. Hamburg thus plays an important role in ensuring that Germany will meet its climate protection goals and succeed in mastering the energy transition. What is more, the port of Hamburg is an ideal logistics hub for the import and distribution of green hydrogen across Germany and Europe.
Hamburg's Minister for Economic Affairs, Michael Westhagemann, commented:
"Decarbonising industry, developing a green hydrogen economy and promoting smart mobility are among Hamburg's top priorities. We look forward to demonstrating this in front of an international audience and engaging with partners from industry as well as representatives of other cities and metropolitan regions. The issues caused by climate change are global issues and can only be solved together".
As part of Hannover Messe's conference sessions, six live-streamed talks with Hamburg experts will provide insights into the city's comprehensive expertise in the production of green hydrogen and its application across various sectors of the economy – from aviation, port logistics and shipping to imports, industrial use and the relevant hydrogen infrastructure. The experts involved will be highlighting Hamburg's strength with regard to hydrogen, while also identifying any aspects that may have to be adjusted in order to leverage the city's full potential.
All six livestreams will be available at www.hannovermesse.de/exhibitor/his-hamburg-invest-service/S560991.
