Hannover Messe Scottish Showcase

Houlder is one of seven members from Sustainable Islands International (SII) appearing at the Hannover Messe Exhibition, April 1st to 5th, within the Scottish Development International Pavilion. Our presence (Stand L66 in Hall 27) presents an exciting opportunity to showcase the Scottish energy sector’s capability and expertise.

SII Account Manager, Simon Morris described the event. “The Low Carbon transition agenda is becoming a higher and higher priority for the world and Local Energy Systems are increasingly the direction that the market is taking. Scotland is leading the way in this sector, so where better to showcase this than in the Integrated Energy programme at Hannover Messe. Hannover Messe is one of the world’s largest trade fairs and will take place 01 – 05 April 2019 in Germany. The fair includes innovative products and solutions from across the entire industrial value chain. Typically, there are about 6,500 exhibitors showcasing projects in R&D, industrial automation, and IT, presenting technologies to revolutionize production and the supply chain, the energy sector, and mobility. Each year they have 250,000 visitors from across the globe.”

Hannover Messe includes a week-long forum dedicated to integrated energy with a range of speakers covering how to lead a successful energy transition, developing the charging infrastructure of tomorrow, and how industrial companies can significantly cut costs by using energy more efficiently. On Tuesday 2nd and Wednesday 3rd April the SII members will be promoting their businesses in one of the Integrated Energy seminar rooms. There will also be an SDI networking reception on Wednesday 3rd with a much sought after ‘whisky tasting’ reception on the pavilion. Houlder appears alongside Aggreko, CCL components, Firefly Hybrid Power, the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC), SD Wind Energy and Star Renewable Energy (SRE).

Houlder’s Chief Executive Officer, Rupert Hare commented “The Scottish energy industry is thriving thanks to its unique combination of proven Oil & Gas expertise and Renewable and Low Carbon innovation. We are delighted to be playing a part in showcasing its range, depth and, in particular, its impact on island communities.”
