Hannover/Germany – In Germany alone, experts estimate that €10 billion could be saved each year solely by reducing energy costs. The German Environment and Reactor Safety Ministry is convinced that industry alone could bring down energy consumption levels by between 20% and 40% by the year 2020. At the special Energy Efficiency in Industrial Processes exhibition, Hannover Messe 2012 will highlight ways in which energy consumption could be reduced in various sectors of industry from 23 to 27 April 2012.

The exhibition area is located in Hall 14 which traditionally attracts large numbers of visitors. Right near by, companies can present energy efficiency technologies, solutions and sample applications in the Forum Efficiency Arena which provides a platform for presentations, discussion rounds and exhibits. A number of this year's speakers and exhibitors including KSB, SEW Eurodrive and Rittal will be back again next year, because the exhibition and forum address a highly specific group of professionals. The patron of the special exhibition is German Economics and Technology Minister Philipp Rösler. The conceptual sponsors are ZVEI and Namur, which is yet another indication of the importance of process automation in the search for energy-efficient solutions. Next year, Hannover Messe plans to extend the range of topics covered by the talks at the Efficiency Arena in an effort to accommodate the needs of the process industry which is currently looking for new technical solutions and improvement strategies to offset high energy prices. In addition to reducing production costs, energy conservation also gives companies a competitive edge in the market.
