The focus is on the topics:

  • Hybrid and energy-efficient drive topologies: CO2 reduction options are on everyone's lips. Find out interesting facts about innovative drive topologies and related practical experience reports.
  • Storage technologies: Whether hydraulic or electric, energy storage systems are of great importance for decarbonization. Find out what the current state of science is.
  • Energy conversions: No process can take place without the conversion of energy. You can look forward to presentations on various energy conversion options, from hydraulic drive systems to fuel cells. 
  • Control and regulation strategies: We invite you to think along and discuss the findings presented on the topic of control and regulation strategies, networked processes and operating strategies.


The conference will be accompanied by a trade exhibition in the foyer of the conference center. During the breaks, participants will have the opportunity to find out about the innovations and products of various companies at the trade exhibition and to exchange ideas.
