Next month, experts, decision-makers and industry representatives will meet up for the Berlin Energy Days. The event focuses on the energy transition and will take place from 3 to 5 May 2017 at the Berlin Chamber of Industry and Commerce’s Ludwig-Erhard-Haus. More than 8,000 participants are expected at the event; they will take part in around 50 specialist sessions, workshops and panel discussions and discuss issues such as energy efficiency, renewable energy, energy supply and energy services. The events and the trade fair are targeted at experts and decision-makers from the political world, from the fields of energy and real estate and at specialists such as architects and engineers.

Focusing on energy efficiency

Around 40 exhibitors will present their products and services at the trade fair. The Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy will also have a stand. Focusing on energy efficiency, the Ministry will present, among other things, its ‘Germany makes it efficient’ information campaign. As far as buildings are concerned, the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy will provide customised renovation roadmaps in order to encourage home owners to take steps to improve the energy performance of their buildings. These new roadmaps will be presented at the event entitled ‘Energy-efficient buildings and neighbourhoods’ on 4 May. Visitors can learn more about the renovation roadmaps and the Ministry’s funding programme at the Ministry’s trade fair stand which is located inside the large atrium.

Interested parties can also go to the Berlin Energy Days website to take a look at the full agenda of the event and to register for individual sessions up until 25 April 2017.
