Industry meets Renewables

This year, the “Industry meets Renewables” conference will be directly linked to HUSUM WIND. The aim is to promote and jointly shape the further development and networking of players from the wind sector, industry and business. Supplying industry and the economy with renewable energies and green hydrogen, modernising production processes and increasing the efficiency of the energy industry are major challenges. These challenges call for solutions and cooperation between politics, industry and science.

Under the patronage of Dr Robert Habeck, Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Climate Protection, and Tobias Goldschmidt, Minister for Energy Conversion, Climate Protection, Environment and Nature of the State of Schleswig-Holstein, the two-day conference will take place on
11 and 12 September 2023 as part of HUSUM WIND. Speakers from the renewable energy sector and German industry will explain the transformation process and highlight the opportunities for Germany as a business location.
