International technical programme

EnergyDecentral is the platform for the future issues of decentralised energy supply. Benefit from the know-how of international industry experts and discuss current topics, trends and strategies with experts. From 12 to 15 November 2024, we will present a top-class international technical programme live from the leading trade fair in Hanover.


Nowhere in the world is the subject of anaerobic digestion more developed and the number of agricultural and municipal biogas plants larger than in Germany. As an international trade fair, EnergyDecentral offers a complete range for the entire industry. Reach biogas plant operators and trade visitors with investment intentions from all over the world. Benefit from the synergies with EuroTier.

BIOGAS Convention

The “BIOGAS Convention” organised by the Biogas Association takes place every two years as part of EnergyDecentral. Here, experts discuss the current prospects for the biogas market. At the world's largest meeting of the biogas industry, operators of biogas plants in particular, but also visitors from abroad, will find valuable information, economic feasibility studies and technology trends in numerous national and international discussion panels.

Solid fuels

In agriculture, regenerative solid fuels are a way of avoiding expensive heating costs and supplying heating networks with peak loads. EnergyDecentral offers concepts for a complete renewal of heat generation. Whether logs, wood chips or pellets: the fully automatic biomass firing systems offer visitors and, above all, farmers plenty of room for savings - the latest technologies for efficient and low-emission firing are in demand.

Combined heat and power plants (CHP)

CHP technology is the pillar of a regular residual load supply for decentralised energy systems. Components, lubricants and services in the power range from 20 kW - 2MW are the focus of EnergyDecentral. The trade fair has firmly established itself both nationally and internationally for companies operating biogas plants. Due to the high demand for maintenance and service, but also increasing requirements for compliance with emissions, the demand for components and operating resources is growing.

Power to gas

Focus on new technologies: the first municipal utilities and municipal utilities are turning excess electricity into clean gas. CHP technology for the direct generation of electricity from hydrogen and natural gas with simultaneous production of heat is a response to the conversion towards a sustainable energy supply.


The installation of new PV systems to cover your own electricity consumption is a lucrative investment. Farmers still have plenty of free space on stables, barns and silos. The demand for electricity on farms where livestock is kept is enormous and is increasing due to the increasing electrification of work machines and vehicle fleets. Farmers play a key role in decisions about modules, substructures, inverters and power storage. PV is an integral part of the business on many farms. The technology is well known and there is great interest in PV and electricity storage.

Campus & Career: Information and consultation

In the “Campus & Career” exhibition area, the DLG and its partners present a comprehensive information and advice program on all aspects of professional careers. In the “Career” area, visitors can make contact with companies, obtain information from personnel consultancies and find out more about training and further education opportunities. In the "Campus" area, technical colleges and universities as well as research institutes present current research projects.
