Change is coming to energy, industrial and transportation sectors all over the world. Everywhere, countries are looking for future-proof solutions to transform their economies into something more environmentally sustainable and energy efficient. Hannover Messe, taking place April 23 through 27, will offer them ways to accomplish their goals. The center of attention will again be the Energy, one of the five lead shows.
Swiss Hydrogen, a manufacturer of fuel cell systems, has a new owner. Groupe E, an energy provider based in Switzerland, announced in late 2017 that it had sold its stake in the company to Plastic Omnium, a French supplier of auto parts. The latter also acquired the shares held by others, namely entrepreneur Marco Simeoni, venture capital firm Capital Risque Fribourg and the Paul Scherrer Institute, also known as PSI.
