“Our plans for the 15th show in the annual series are well advanced; hundreds of exhibitors from home and overseas will be there; the conference programme with over 400 speakers is rapidly taking shape; and it’s all-systems-go for an exciting Giant Networking Evening”, says Event Director, Jonathan Heastie of Reed Exhibitions.
Within the exhibition All-Energy covers all forms of renewable energy and – new for this year - ‘Sustainable Cities’ showcasing products and services relevant to the development of a sustainable city. The event will showcase sustainable city solutions in onsite and microgeneration, recycled heat /waste heat, waste to energy, energy efficient lighting, urban energy storage and city energy infrastructure, many of them, topics covered in the past in both the exhibition and conference but now bought under one ‘umbrella’.
Once again the world-class conference encompasses all sources of renewable energy generation, and the opportunities and challenges facing the sectors; and embraces other key component parts including the grid, skills, and finance and funding. It also covers carbon capture and storage; energy storage; district heating; sustainable transport; business energy efficiency.
