WindEnergy Hamburg to feature start-up area and speed dating

New "Start-up Area" and "Speed Dating" event to jump-start newcomers to wind industry

This year’s Windenergy Hamburg is offering rounds of speed dating with numerous companies from different countries on September 26 and 27. More than 1,400 companies from 40 nations are exhibiting at WindEnergy Hamburg from September 25-28, 2019. Together with the WindEurope Conference, the world’s leading trade fair for the onshore and offshore wind industry forms the Global Wind Summit 2018 in Hamburg.

Joint stand for innovative companies

“WindEnergy Hamburg is providing a special platform for wind industry start-ups to show their innovative solutions to industry visitors from around the world and jump-start their export business. The fair offers them ideal conditions to establish contacts with business partners in many markets,” said Klaus Brunner, a senior official from the International Commerce and Trade Fairs division at the German Federal Office of Economics and Export Control (BAFA) which manages the start-up area. The Hamburg-based company morEnergy, which is presenting a new measuring system, e.g. is among the start-ups at the fair. Its customers can detect instabilities in the wind farm grids on land and at sea in good time and thus counteract preventive shutdown.

International speed dating

WindEnergy Hamburg and the Energieloft are hosting the two-day rounds of speed dating. Then, established companies and investors can talk to start-ups for eight minutes to jointly launch new products and business models. In the run-up to the dates, interests and requests will be queried to match participants with the right counterparts.

Wind energy companies from the Hamburg Metropolitan Region are focusing mainly on the potential of foreign markets and are very sceptical about the domestic market, according to a survey of the members of the Hamburg Renewable Energies Cluster based in the Hamburg Metropolitan Region. Around one third (32 per cent) of the representatives of the offshore wind industry surveyed expect the most dynamic market development in the next two years in Europe in France and Britain (21 per cent). Outside Europe, the most positive market development is expected in Taiwan (42 per cent) and the United States (26 per cent). The survey was conducted in the run-up to WindEnergy Hamburg 2018, the world’s leading trade fair for wind energy.
