A Personal Invitation from the Director of POWERGRID Europe:
Dear industry colleague:
Let me tell you a story. Stories are big in my business, as a writer, and this is a smart one to tell. As the cultural sun of a very modern 18th century dawned in Germany, a young man traveled all the way from the green hills of Italy to establish a new home in Cologne. Already trained as a perfumer, the young man decided to set up shop in his adopted town.
What came from that small happenstance in 1709—right person, right business, right information, right town, right time—is the reason we have the generic term “cologne” today. That young man hit upon a perfect smell, a fragrance that reminded him of spring in Italy. He bottled it, and, as they say here in America, it was like bottling lightning. Generations later, we still recognize the results of that perfect concoction.
And, exactly three hundred years after Giovanni Farina whipped up the first fateful batch of Eau de Cologne, POWERGRID Europe and its sister shows POWER-GEN Europe and Renewable Energy World Europe visit the city still famous for its fresh, citrus scent. This May 26-28, we bring experts, engineers, academics and vendors to Cologne to talk about the meeting the energy challenge in all three covered areas: generation, renewables, T&D.
Within POWERGRID Europe itself, you’ll find tracks on connecting renewables, keeping the lights on with technology at hand, how to juggle assets and costs, the positives of demand-side management and details on simulation and computer aides available to develop and maintain a very smart grid for the future. And, the future is key. As countries bring more renewables and smarter tidbits into an archaic grid, planning for upgrades and interconnections is more than neccessary, it’s vital—vital to society, culture and business, including the business of Farina’s descendants, who still operate the world’s oldest cologne factory opposite Jülichs-Platz in the heart of the city.
In 1709, Farina didn’t need much more than a good supply of oils and vats to mix them in. Modern business requires much more, including the cleanest, smartest, most reliable power supply available. One glitch in the power structure these days costs those cologne makers—and every other businessman—a small fortune.
To meet that particular energy challenge, and to create the perfect ending to this story of mine, I invite you to come visit with us at POWERGRID Europe this May. Cologne is the right town; May is the right time. Sit in on our conference sessions. Those have the right information. Walk through the exhibit floor. You might find the right business. And having industry insiders like you at the show will certainly bring in the right people.
With all of those details in the mix, we could find the right formula, like Farina—lightning in a bottle. And, like Farina and his citrus scent, this industry is poised to change the world and leave a very lasting impression. So, please, join us in Cologne May 26-28.
I look forward to seeing you there.
