ESSEN: E.ON will be presenting several innovative products for all customer groups at the E-world energy trade fair in Essen from February 6 to 8. From the virtual storage of solar power via a thermal battery for municipal heating networks to the filling station of the future, E.ON will showcase numerous ways in which customers can benefit from the opportunities offered by the new energy world.

“More and more customers are expecting sustainable solutions that protect both the environment and their wallets,” says E.ON Board member Karsten Wildberger. “All our innovations meet this customer requirement. But they offer even more. With the help of digital technology, we are also creating solutions that make life more comfortable for private households and help companies simplify their energy supply processes,” says Wildberger. In Hall 3, trade fair visitors can find out new products for private customers, companies and cities:

E.ON is adding a branch office directly in front of the E.ON building across from the trade fair grounds to E.ON. With E.ON DrivePlaza, the company is presenting an intelligent charging concept that can intelligently integrate companies' electric vehicle fleets into the network. With this power filling station of the future, several vehicles can be charged simultaneously. It includes charging columns, a battery storage tank for mains compensation and a roof construction with its own solar power generation. A central aspect is load management, whereby the load is distributed evenly over the mains connection. The concept thus brings advantages for network operators and companies: It protects the grid and avoids expensive load peaks when purchasing electricity.
