DLG Spotlights: First-hand expert knowledge

What are the current agricultural energy issues in the fields of biogas, combined heat and power generation, wood energy, solar, wind and the storage and marketing of energy? What is the current status of the EEG (German Renewable Energy Act)? Which technologies and components for the generation of electricity and heat are available on the market and what advantages do they offer? What are the prospects for biogas plant operators and are there new business models resulting from this? In the DLG Spotlights, the DLG, together with exhibitors and experts from the scientific community, explores the central issues of the decentralised energy sector.

Become active and discuss and chat with speakers, experts and company representatives.

What you can expect in the DLG Spotlights:


As a strong partner and co-organiser in the field of biogas, the German Biogas Association (Fachverband Biogas), together with the DLG, is organising a targeted technical programme for current topics relating to biogas and biomethane. There will be live discussions and moderated events on production, marketing, requirements for plants and perspectives in the sector. Exhibitors will present their latest products and services. Selected content from the Biogas Convention is also available on demand as a little treat.

Biogas CHP & other CHP

As the trade fair for biogas CHP and other CHP (combined heat and power) systems, there is an abundant programme for operators and stakeholders from the field of stationary gas engines and friends of combined heat and power generation. Flexibilisation, emission requirements, service & maintenance as well as the latest technologies, units and a look into the future of hydrogen. Don't miss the first-class events of the VDMA Power System, the DLG and, of course, the companies from this sector!


Wood energy

Co2-neutral heating with wood and straw! In agriculture, renewable solid fuels are already an established feature in order to become independent of expensive heating costs and to supply heating networks with peak loads. In the technical programme, companies and plant operators deal intensively with this topic and offer concepts for a complete renewal of heat generation. Regardless of whether it's firewood, wood chips or pellets. Sustainability, emissions, fuel supply and their quality are central topics of the technical events.

Energy production in agriculture

In the DLG spotlight "Energy production in agriculture" you'll encounter state-of-the-art technologies, from power generation, control and storage to the use and sale of self-generated electricity in agriculture. Established, highly efficient power generation plants meet both pioneering and visionary concepts there. Whether it's agro-voltaics, solar carports or base-load-capable gas engines – here the energy turnaround is decentralised and part of the agricultural value-added chain. The focus is on the intelligent use of self-generated electricity. Wheel loaders, robots or drones - an electric drive is a common characteristic of all systems.

Solar, wind and storage

From full feed-in the next step is self-supply, and here there are possibilities for long-term storage of solar power. Current technologies - what's important here, and what about cleaning and repowering? In addition, more and more agrovoltaic projects show that not only food and raw materials can be produced on agricultural land, but also a lot of energy! Together with the publishing house Gentner Verlag and the German-language trade journal "photovoltaik", the DLG is organising an attractive technical programme with topics from the solar industry especially for the agricultural sector.
