The Federation of German Heating Industry (BDH) is organising the Technology and Energy Forum together with its partner associations in the special Hotspot Energy area in the Westfoyer of Hall 12.
In March, the pulse of the heating industry will be beating again in Frankfurt. After the world's leading trade fair for efficiency and renewable energies in the heating sector was held digitally two years ago due to the pandemic, the industry is finally meeting again live in the Frankfurt exhibition halls. The top themes of ISH Energy have long since moved to the centre of the social discussion. In addition to solutions for achieving climate protection targets in the building sector, German manufacturers will also be showing solutions for safeguarding security of supply at ISH 2023.
The Federation of German Heating Industry (BDH) is organising the Technology and Energy Forum together with its partner associations in the special Hotspot Energy area in the Westfoyer in front of Heating Hall 12. The forum offers visitors a compact overview of the current political framework conditions and the solution paths for achieving the climate targets in the heating sector. These are ambitious: By 2030, CO2 emissions in the heating sector are to be reduced by around 40%, starting from 2020. The forum not only looks at the German situation, but also considers European climate policy and refers to the Green Deal or the REPowerEU plan. In terms of energy sources, the focus will be on topics such as biomethane and hydrogen, e-fuels, green electricity and wood energy. In terms of system technology, the forum describes all the technologies currently available on the market. These include condensing heating system (also as H2-Ready), heat pumps, hybrid heating systems, CHP and fuel cell heating systems, wood-based systems such as pellet heating systems, digital solutions and even residential ventilation with heat recovery.
At the special Hotspot Energy area, which also includes the Technology and Energy Forum, the BDH and its partners are organising, among other things, a daily lecture forum. On discussion panels, representatives from politics, industry and associations discuss the hot topics of the heating sector on a daily basis.
- How will the installation of 500,000 heat pumps succeed from 2024?
- What role will hydrogen play in the heating sector in the future?
- How can the heat transition be organised in a socially balanced way?
The panelists will try to provide answers to these and many other questions.
In addition, the Technology and Energy Forum also includes a multimedia show that also provides information on solutions for achieving climate targets and the entire technical solution space of the heating industry. In addition to extensive information material, experts from the Federation of German Heating Industry and partner associations will be available to answer visitors' questions on the topic of the heating turnaround.
