From 24.04.2017 – 02.05.2017 a Chinese business delegation from Saxony’s partner province Hubei visited Dresden. Within the framework of the sector-related sales promotion instrument (BBA), supported by the Saxon State Ministry of Economics, Labour and Transport (SMWA), Saxon and Chinese companies were offered a platform for mutual exchange and contact. Even though the focus was on automation technologies and Industry 4.0, there was lively interest in energy efficiency and energy optimization. In recent years, China has become a leader in the fields of e-mobility and renewable generation technologies. “The People’s Republic of China is of great interest to us energy architects. We see an enormous market potential for renewable, interconnected systems and charging infrastructure solutions. Together with ESI ITI our products Green Building und Green City / SimulationX will be actively marketed in China,” says Ralf Schieferdecker, sales manager of EA Systems Dresden GmbH.
