In spite of its small population of only 10 million people, Sweden is a major industrial player and an innovation hub. ABB, SKF, Spotify, and Ericsson are some of the most well-known companies from Sweden.
And it is no coincidence that Sweden was Hannover Messe partner country this year. Sweden is a highly tech-literate society where people are open to new ideas and technologies changing our world. And at the German fair, there was no lack of ideas and technology at the Swedish pavilion. Especially regarding the energy sector.

The company Unimi wants to encourage the use of electric cars on our streets. While the lack of charging stations is the main barrier to more widespread adoption, Unimi designs chargers that are cost-efficient, modular, and ready to install.
With their solution, Unimi wants to simplify construction work which represents 50% of the cost of infrastructure installation. With their system, the city just needs to dig up the streets once.
This same innovative spirit led to one of the most famous companies worldwide, ABB. The Swedish leader in robotics has been part of Hannover Messe since the very beginning. This year they were one of the top partners.
In 2018, Forbes named Sweden the world’s second-best country for doing business, after the UK.
