The Renewable Energy Cluster Hamburg (EEHH) is heading to WindEnergy Hamburg 2016 with several sub exhibitors and an extensive accompanying programme. The leading global expo, Wind Energy Hamburg, will be held from September 27-30 in Hamburg’s fairgrounds and will again host decision-makers in the global energy business. WindEnergy Hamburg covers the whole value chain of both the onshore and offshore wind industry and will have an extra exhibition hall this year. Jan Rispens, Managing Director of EEHH-Cluster, is also on the advisory board of WindEnergy Hamburg. The cluster will stage a whole range of exciting events this year.
Product innovation of the year
EEHH’s 16 sub exhibitors include the Center of Competence for Renewable Energies and Energy Efficiency (CC4E), the Fraunhofer Institute for Silicium Technology (ISIT) and the Technical University of Hamburg-Harburg (TUHH). One of the highlights is the presentation of the German Renewables Awards on September 28th. An independent jury consisting of leading figures in commerce and science will present the awards in the categories: “Product Innovation of the Year”, “Project of the Year”, “Student Project of the Year”, “Wind Energy” and “Lifetime Wind Energy”. EEHH and the cluster initiative from Schleswig-Holstein will host an event on innovations.
