Attendees up 30 percent on day one of Energy Now Expo 2014


Attendees grew 30 percent year on year during the opening day of the Energy Now Expo in Telford. The annual two day event, showcases renewable energy options to farmers and landowners.

David Jacobmeyer, Energy Now Expo organiser said: "We had a great Energy Now Expo opening day yesterday with some really interesting and useful presentations from industry experts.

“Today’s line-up is just as impressive and I hope that people will come along again today as with legislation and technology changing all the time, there is always something new to learn.”


With 160 exhibitors and presentations from Baroness Verma, DECC, Ian Burrow, Head of Agriculture and Renewables, NatWest, Patrick Begg, Rural Enterprise Director, National Trust and Clarke Willis, Chief Executive Officer of Anglia Farmers, Thursday's event is set to be just as jam packed, providing visitors to the expo with a wealth of information and guidance.

The young farmer competition final will also take place on Thursday and will see two young farmers compete in front of a panel of experts to take the Energy Now Expo young farmer crown. Alex Fowlie from Turriff in Aberdeenshire and Greg Davies from Worcester will go to head to head to win the crown of Energy Now Expo Young Farmer 2014.

Energy Now Expo is a two-day conference and exhibition designed to bring together farmers and landowners from all over the UK to help them explore and further understand the opportunities available in renewable energy, plus the best practices in energy management and efficiency.
