11th RENEXPO INTERHYDRO hydropower trade fair in Salzburg
Under the motto “Hydropower needs politics needs hydropower”, RENEXPO INTERHYDRO will be taking place at Salzburg Exhibition Centre on 28 and 29 November 2019.
This trade fair, which is open to the public, has become established over 11 years as a very good platform for networking and the mutual exchange of information.
Up until the beginning of the 20th century, water power was utilised mainly in mills. The fact that today hydropower is making a significant contribution to delivering a safe, sustainable and climate-neutral energy supply is the subject of the European hydropower fair with affiliated congress. The patron of the event is the State of Salzburg with the Deputy State Governor Dr. Heinrich Schellhorn.
Knowledge transfer and networking
The trade fair is aimed primarily at people from business and industry, authorities and local municipalities, politics and science from right across Europe who are involved directly with hydropower. Interested visitors and experts will be given an overview of all essential aspects that make hydropower an efficient, reliable and capable form of energy. Well-known companies will present the full hydropower value chain at the trade fair. This will range from manufacturers of Kaplan, Francis and Pelton turbines, generators, seals, pipes and other plant components, power plant control systems, plant construction, maintenance and optimisation through to measurement and control technology, electricity trading, electric service stations and direct marketing – from long-established family businesses through to international companies. The topics of this year’s congress on the Thursday and Friday alongside the exhibition will be the latest practical experiences and projects as well as energy storage, small-scale hydropower as electric service stations and hydropower expansion that is compatible with water ecology. Once again this year, international markets will be presented with the 3rd Eastern Europe Hydropower Forum and the 3rd “Hydropower in Africa” seminar. This year’s partner country for the trade fair is Italy. Italian exhibitors will present their products and provide information about new technologies and current challenges. The trade fair and congress will provide a comprehensive overview of new technologies, the political framework in Europe and the future of hydropower. A designated networking location is the International Hydropower Associations Stand in the Hydro Lounge. This is where associations will provide information about their activities and innovations – a meeting place at which you will be able to discuss the energy supply of the future and find tomorrow’s answers. At the 4th European Association Meeting, the associations will also exchange views on the current political situation with the aim of combining their interests better and strengthening the hydropower sector across Europe. On both days, the Hydroforum in Hall 10 will offer visitors to the trade fair an interesting and varied programme with talks and discussion panels on current topics in the industry.
