CODE_n E_nergised by Hager Group

Sponsorship and start-up recognition from the leading innovator in the electro-technical sect.

Hager Group's commitment represents the first time that a world-leading company from the electro-technical sector has been involved in the CODE_n-event on the CeBIT fair. The Group, which has its headquarters in Blieskastel in the Saarland, is supporting the ideas competition as a sponsor, as well as with its own recognition for particularly ground-breaking approaches to energy efficiency. In addition, the top management and innovation teams of Hager Group, who develop solutions for the efficient use of energy and distribute them worldwide, will also be represented at Europe's largest competition for start-ups.

As as different as the renowned group of companies (11,300 employees, customers in more than 80 countries worldwide) and the start-ups from CODE_n may appear, in fact, the topics on which both are working are very similar. For example, Hager Group is developing marketable models for intelligent building services, electric mobility, energy efficiency and renewable energy. With its products and solutions, in which intelligent software plays an increasingly important role, the company is noticeably advancing the energy revolution.

At the start-up competition, the two worlds will have many opportunities for cross-fertilisation: Hager Group is interested in the fresh impetus and unconventional approaches offered by start-ups. The young entrepreneurs, in turn, can benefit from the experience, proximity to market and research expertise of a family-owned company that, for the last 60 years, has been bringing energy technology innovations to the market, worldwide. Currently, this includes, for example, powerful storage systems for renewable energies, as well as the pioneering model project of the Hager Group Research and Development Centre in Blieskastel, which is due to be connected to the electricity grid in just a few months time.

You can learn more about these innovations at Hager Group press conference on Tuesday, 5th March, in the Press Lounge (Hall 16). From 12pm, Daniel Hager, Chief Executive Officer of Hager Group, and Johannes Hauck from the company's Corporate Business Development, will be happy to answer your questions about the energy revolution from the perspective of Hager Group. Johannes Hauck will also give a short presentation on the determining success factors for economic and sustainable use of energy in smart buildings. In conjunction, they will both be available for interview. You may also organise individual interviews with them in advance via Claire Freudenberger, Hager Group Corporate Communications Manager.

The following day, the company's Recognition for E_nnovation @ Hager Group will be bestowed for the first time. By so doing, Hager Group will recognise particularly ground-breaking energy efficiency solutions. The winners will be selected by the innovation teams from Hager Group and Daniel Hager, CEO of Hager Group, will personally award them in hall 16 on Wednesday, 6th March at 4pm. Hager Group, leading innovator in the electro-technical industry, will also be represented in the CODE_n Event Area, with its own stand under the motto: "E_nergising E_nnovative & sustainable solutions – Co_nnecting markets & partners worldwide.”

We look forward to seeing you there!
