HUSUM | 15 August 2019: Trade visitors to HUSUM Wind 2019 can look forward to an exciting conference and lecture programme as well as specialist seminars, workshops and matchmaking formats. A brief overview:

HUSUM Wind 2019 Congress

Current, application-specific and interdisciplinary topics will be presented and discussed at the HUSUM Wind 2019 Congress. The content spectrum ranges from digitalisation and big data, technology and service topics to new business models such as PPAs and legal issues. In addition, there will also be lectures in special areas such as innovation and materials research or computer security. The speakers come from the fields of industry, energy supply, certification and financing, IT, research and science. These include OEMs with topics such as technological innovation and new services, digitalisation and repowering.

Forums and lecture programme

The opening day on 10 September already reflects the diversity of the programme – with lectures on technical innovations in wind turbine construction, repowering and dismantling or further use and PPAs, as well as press conferences by such organisations as RDRWind e.V., (Industrial Association for Repowering, Dismantling and Recycling of Wind Turbines). The Plarad Supplier Forum and the VDE-Verlag Forum will take place on the second day of the fair. The latter will present high-end technology for the digitalisation of wind turbines, including topics such as “Reprocessing of bearings and lubrication systems”, “Innovative rotor blade and tower drive systems” and “Demand-oriented night marking”. A further highlight is the HUSUM Wind Innovation Day, curated by Dr Sascha Peters of Haute Innovation, the Berlin-based future agency for materials and technology. There, trade visitors and exhibitors can inform themselves about innovative material technologies and new developments, especially with a view to the profitable continued operation of wind turbines. The forum organiser watt2.0 will discuss hydrogen as a promising storage solution for excess wind power on Wednesday, and on the following day they will focus on sector coupling with “Mobility meets Renewables”.

On the third day of the fair, the lecture programme will continue with practical, predominantly technical topics such as electrical engineering, maintenance and repair or operational management and plant safety. Here, such organisations as TÜV Nord, ARGE Netz and ENGIE will be presenting their projects. And as usual, the last day of the trade fair will feature the Windcareer job fair, held under the motto HR and Recruiting. This is also reflected in the programme with contributions on study and career opportunities and promising business fields in the wind and renewable energy sectors.
