Minister to visit All-Energy
The Rt Hon Claire Perry MP, Minister of State for Energy and Clean Growth, hopes to visit All-Energy at the SEC in Glasgow from 2-3 May.
“We are delighted to hear that the Minister is hoping to visit us on 3 May, day two of the UK’s largest renewable and low carbon energy exhibition and conference,” said All-Energy’s event director, Jonathan Heastie of Reed Exhibitions.
“Over the past three shows, two General Elections and the Scottish Election and their associated ‘purdah period’ meant All-Energy has been bereft of UK Government presence. It is good to get ‘back to normal’, because over the event’s 18-year history we have been delighted to regularly welcome UK Secretaries of State and Ministers to the show.
“This year we already have confirmation of keynote addresses by the First Minister of Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon MSP, Paul Wheelhouse MSP, Minister for Business, Innovation and Energy and Humza Yousaf MSP, Minister for Transport and the Islands in our 400+ speaker conference.
“We look forward to all four Ministers visiting the busy exhibition with its 300+ exhibitors representing the four ‘pillars’ of renewable generation, low carbon heat, energy efficiency and low carbon transport (via the co-located Smart Urban Mobility Solutions). All-Energy provides the perfect platform to meet with energy innovators, investors, suppliers and end-users looking to capitalise upon new opportunities. Attending All-Energy provides our visitors and exhibitors with the insight and connections to stay ahead in this ever-changing landscape, providing them with the best chance of success as the UK’s green ambitions are delivered.”
The 2018 conference has an impressive line-up of industry, academic and political speakers. There are streams and sessions devoted to the show’s four ‘pillars’ as well as energy systems, energy storage, decarbonising industry, carbon capture and storage, community and local energy and the needs of the farming community all part of the annual mix.
Free online registration is open at www.all-energy for all component parts of the event – the exhibition, conference and Civic Reception and Giant Networking Evening. New features this year include an Investor Breakfast, an Innovation trail, CPD sessions for installers and DNOs/IDNOs and Technology Tours for both low carbon heat and energy efficiency.
