Saxony-Anhalt as a location for green energy

Saxony-Anhalt occupies a leading position in Germany in the expansion of renewable energies. Together with other exhibitors, the IMG will present Saxony-Anhalt as an energy location and answer important questions. 

Facts about Saxony-Anhalt as an energy location: 

  • 2020: Share of renewable energies in gross electricity generation at more than 61.5 percent. Saxony-Anhalt is thus well on the way to achieving the federal target of 80 percent by 2030.  

  • The mission: Saxony-Anhalt as a climate-neutral industrial location. To this end, in recent years, for example, numerous opportunities have been created for the development of an innovative hydrogen economy in the state and important projects have been initiated in the areas of research, production and infrastructure.  

  • According to figures from the Federal Network Agency, a total of 2,807 wind turbines are currently in operation in Saxony-Anhalt - 115 new turbines are planned for 2023. 

  • In addition to the processing of hydrogen, Saxony-Anhalt has also seen an immense increase in demand and implementation in the fields of "wind power", "solar energy", "bioenergy" and many other areas of renewable energy.

Focus topics of Hannover Messe 2023

Rarely has the situation been so challenging. On trial are: The economic success of globalisation, the associated prosperity and cooperation in supply chains. In this context, regardless of the classic focal points of "Industry 4.0", the topics of artificial intelligence and machine learning in particular are increasingly coming to the fore. In addition to process optimisation with the help of automation and machine-based learning, this also includes AI-based product simulation. Efficient and long-term sustainable energy management is clearly the basis for this.


How can I ensure permanently affordable energy? What are the clear advantages of a location when it comes to hydrogen and fuel cells? How can I make my operational processes as climate-neutral and CO2-neutral as possible?

Hannover Messe answers precisely these questions and offers new opportunities for significant partnerships. Opportunities for international dialogue, opportunities for new partnerships and new investments that are developing now. "The path to climate-neutral production leads via Hannover," says Dr Jochen Köckler, Managing Director of Deutsche Messe. "There is plenty to discuss here, and that is what we will do - at the energy 4.0 conference stage."

Exhibitors from all over the world at Hannover Messe 2023
