All-Energy on course for successNews // January 28, 2009
More space has been reserved at All-Energy ’09, the UK’s largest renewable energy exhibition and conference, than at the same time last year, and, evolving to suit market needs, the show has additional conference sessions.
Being held in Aberdeen, Scotland, 20-21 May 2009, All-Energy ’09, which is held in association with BWEA and Scottish Renewables and with The Society for Underwater Technology as its learned society patron, is endorsed by over 30 government departments, professional bodies and trade associations, and is also an officially branded ‘Homecoming Scotland’ event.
“Things are looking really good for May; evidence of the industry’s commitment to doing all it can to meet national and EU targets,” said Paul Stott, Managing Director of Media Generation Events Ltd, who organise the annual show in partnership with Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre.
“The enthusiasm from the industry translates into some 3,200m2 of space already sold and reserved, which is appreciably more than this time last year. This includes national pavilions from Austria, Canada, Denmark, Flanders, Norway, and the USA and, closer to home, large regional pavilions from Aberdeen City and Shire; Fife, HIE, Orkney"
“Many of our conference sessions addressing all sources of renewables including onshore and offshore wind; wave and tidal; hydro; hydrogen and fuel cells; bioenergy; microgeneration, and larger-scale onsite renewables; as well as the policy, challenges and opportunities facing the industry are permanent fixtures in the All-Energy conference mix and will run in the multi-stream free-to-attend conference after our international Ministerial Opening Plenary session.
“This year sees the introduction of several new streams and sessions including sustainable transport; heat; public sector – mobilising renewable energy for the public good; a special session on The Crown Estate’s activities; and a session devoted to research by the Scottish Universities Consortium ETP. Our outline conference programme will be available shortly at www.all-energy.co.uk with fuller information available by the end of February.”
The year 2009 marks the 250th anniversary of the birth of Scotland’s national poet and cultural icon, Robert Burns. And Burns is the inspiration behind “Homecoming Scotland” a year-long celebration of some of Scotland’s great contributions to the world: golf, whisky, great minds and innovation, Burns himself, and Scotland’s culture and heritage.
All-Energy is an officially accredited Homecoming Scotland event. “We look forward to offering a warm and proactive welcome to engineering homecoming Scots, or those with Scottish ancestry,” says Paul Stott. “All-Energy will introduce them to the phenomenal opportunities offered by Scottish renewable energy initiatives and developments (as well as those from other parts of the UK and from around the world) and will be ensuring a particularly warm welcome for them.”
