A two-day conference and exhibition designed to bring together farmers & landowners from all over the UK to help them explore and further understand the opportunities available in renewable energy types - wind, biomass, biofuels, biogas, ground source heating, hydro and solar.
The conference will focus on all aspects of renewable energy, while the exhibition will provide a showcase of more than 170 suppliers demonstrating the latest technologies.
Reducing your costs and carbon-emissions through effective management of your energy usage has always been important and should be considered as high a priority as generating your own renewable heat or power. This has become even more essential for properties installing solar panels after 1st April 2012, as they are now required to produce an Energy Performance Certificate rating of ‘D’ or above to qualify for a full FIT.
Showcasing the best practices, the energy management & efficiency zone will form a new section within the exhibition. Presentations on the subject, including the technologies, services and measures available will be held within a dedicated conference stream throughout both days of the event.
Do you have an energy saving/efficiency product or service that you feel is suitable for the agricultural & rural sectors? If so, contact David Jacobmeyer today on 01905 616 665 or firstname.lastname@example.org to ensure your company is involved in this exciting new zone!
More than 2,000 farmers and landowners streamed through the doors of this year’s Energy Now Expo at Malvern to discover more about the opportunities they have to generate renewable energy, save money or their heating and/or power bills, as well as diversify their income streams.
Already recognised as the top event for farmers and landowners who want to “kick and touch” the various technologies now available before buying, the show was held in association with the National Farmers Union (NFU) and the Country Land and Business Association (CLA) and was sponsored by NatWest.
Staged at the Malvern Showground on February 15 and 16, the better-than-ever Energy Now Expo 2012 included a sell-out two-day conference focusing on renewable energy opportunities and solutions in rural areas, with keynote papers on “The EU effect – a look into the future,” “Financing your renewable energy project,” “A guide to the planning process” and “Why saving energy and reducing emissions in good for your business”.
Special interactive workshop sessions and dedicated presentations explored the pros and cons of solar energy, hydro power, biomass, anaerobic digestion, energy crops, ground and air source heat pumps and wind power, while a total of 116 exhibitors (compared with 90 the previous year) presented a wide range of renewable energy technologies, products and services specially tailored for farmers and landowners.
The exhibitors were delighted that in addition to the fact that 90% of the visitors were attending the Energy Now Expo for the first time this year, the majority of them were also there to do more than just “window shop”. As one exhibitor commented afterwards, “they knew what they are talking about and they just wanted to get on with it. They were keen to find out how and where they can best invest in renewable energy.”
David Jacobmeyer, who publishes Energy Now and heads Renewable Energy Events, which organises the Expo, said: “Renewable energy is fast becoming the primary diversification option for farmers and landowners. Subsequently, the event continues to grow every year and provides an unrivalled opportunity for the agricultural/rural sectors and the renewable energy industry to meet and do business.”
“The next event will be held on 13th & 14th February 2013 at the Telford International Centre, Shropshire, where we are confident that the Energy Now Expo 2013 and the conference which runs alongside it will be even bigger and better than before!”
