Scotland’s First Minister to speak at All Energy

Registration for All-Energy opens online with the news that Scotland’s First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, will speak in the opening plenary conference session on 10 May.

“We are delighted to be welcoming Scotland’s First Minister to the show on opening morning,” said All-Energy’s Event Director, Jonathan Heastie of organisers, Reed Exhibitions.

“This is an important time for Scotland’s energy plans. The consultation period for the Scottish Government’s draft Energy Strategy will still be open at the time of All-Energy, meaning that there will be much buzz in conference sessions and on the exhibition show floor about responding to the acclaimed far reaching and ranging document. It sets out Scotland’s vision of achieving almost complete decarbonisation of the energy system; and setting a new 2030 ‘all-energy’ target for the equivalent of 50% of Scotland’s heat, transport and electricity consumption to be supplied from renewable sources.

“All-Energy is an event that buzzes with enthusiasm from exhibitors eager to do business and visitors just as eager to learn and to engage with exhibitors and conference speakers. We have a superb exhibitor list with a broad range of highly relevant exhibits, and a stellar conference line-up. The First Minister’s presence will add to both the topicality and significance of the programme.”

Not only will the First Minister play her role in the All-Energy opening session, but Scottish Government officials will have a role to play in sessions such as Energy Efficiency and Onshore Wind (also on 10 May) and Local Energy and Heat (both on 11 May), as well as in the bioenergy, carbon capture and storage, hydrogen and fuel cells, hydropower, marine renewables, and offshore wind sessions.

The 17th All-Energy will be held at the Glasgow Event Campus (SEC – formerly SECC), bringing together some 7,000 participants from home and overseas, 400 exhibiting companies from 16 countries and a packed multi-stream conference and seminar programme with around 400 speakers.
