Energieküste at Hannover Messe 2023

Political celebrities at Germany's pioneers of the energy transition

People like to come and see: "Germany's Green Energy Valley" is always worth a visit. So the Energieküste stand at Hannover Messe 2023 was also a destination for greet, meet and talk for many politicians. 

Claus Ruhe Madsen, Minister for Economy, Transport, Labor, Technology and Tourism in Schleswig-Holstein, was on site and even took the time for the ENERGIEKÜSTE TALK on the topic of skilled workers. The State Secretary in the Ministry for Energy Transition, Climate Protection, Environment and Nature in S-H, Joschka Knuth, also liked to visit the Schleswig-Holstein joint stand and was pleased about the success of the number 1 energy transition region. From Kiel also came Dirk Schrödter, Minister of Digitalization and Head of the State Chancellery S-H, who was among other things very interested in the touch table of the Development Agency Region Heide.

Visit from Berlin with honours

A flying visit to Hall 12: Dr Robert Habeck, Federal Minister of Economics and Climate Protection, was shown the latest developments by the Energieküste pioneer GP JOULE group of companies and then stopped by the Schleswig-Holstein stand.

Here, a surprise awaited him: The Energieküste had prepared a little thank you for the federal minister. "The Energieküste Award goes symbolically to Dr Robert Habeck - for his tireless commitment to renewables, the energy transition and climate protection. Always on the scene of sustainable events with great interest in new developments and projects. Completely in the sense of the west coast of Schleswig-Holstein", said Kirsten Voss, Project Manager Energieküste.

Robert Habeck was not allowed to take the pink statuette with him, but he was very pleased about the appreciation. He thanked us in turn: "It's really cool to see Schleswig-Holstein here in Hanover.”
