Koelnmesse is launching an ambitious sustainability strategy to become climate-neutral five years earlier than planned. Alongside E.ON, Koelnmesse is consolidating its pioneering role as it plans to save 5,800 tonnes of CO2 per year from 2028 onwards at one of the world’s largest city-centre trade fair sites. A partnership between E.ON and RheinEnergie will enable an innovative and effective combination of decentralised generation and centralised district heating. Within the framework of a new energy partnership with E.ON and RheinEnergie, by 2028, Koelnmesse will have completely switched the heating supply for its trade fair grounds in Cologne – the eighth largest trade fair site in the world – to climate-friendly technology. The systems used will be powered by sustainable sources such as air, groundwater and the sun. In innovative combination with the RheinEnergie district heating system, this new heating concept will secure significant energy and CO2 savings amounting to 5,800 tonnes per year. These plans form part of the sustainability strategy that Koelnmesse is launching today, which involves the company and Koelnmesse's own events reaching the requirements for climate-neutrality as early as 2030. This is five years earlier than initially planned.

4,800 modules with an output of almost 2.0 megawatt peak (MWp) will effectively reduce CO2 emissions by 1,200 tonnes annually. By constructing Cologne's largest inner-city photovoltaic system, Koelnmesse is taking another step toward achieving its goal of climate-neutral business operations by 2035. In the coming weeks, around 4,800 photovoltaic modules will be installed on the roofs of Hall 11 and the South Entrance, promising an annual yield of 2 million kilowatt hours. "Photovoltaics play a key role in our mission to achieve a future-oriented power supply," says Gerald Böse, CEO of Koelnmesse GmbH. "The self-generated energy will enable us to reduce our CO2 footprint by around 1,200 tonnes per year." "Large-scale projects such as Koelnmesse's photovoltaic system make an important contribution to the City of Cologne's ambitious goal of being CO2-neutral by 2035. Moreover, Koelnmesse is also acting as a role model for other companies to position themselves sustainably," says Henriette Reker, Mayor of the City of Cologne.
