GRID EXPO AT THE FORUM ON RENEWABLE ENERGIES

GRID EXPO displayed a model of the T-Pylon during the trade fair at the Renewable Energy Forum in Hannover from the 7th – 11th April 2014. The forum was arranged and hosted by the Agentur für Erneuerbare Energien (Agency for Renewable Energies). GRID EXPO’s presence was considered to be a valuable contribution and of great significance towards renewable energies overall.

In order to get a better insight additional photos and presentations from the forum can be seen here.
