All-Energy 2015 Moving to Glasgow

first_imgPress Release, May 23, 2014; Image: secc After 14 highly successful years in Aberdeen, 2015 sees the UK’s largest renewable energy event move to a new home in Glasgow. Like Aberdeen, Glasgow understands and appreciates the strategic importance of renewable energy and is rapidly emerging as a leading international hub for energy expertise, particularly due to its well-developed R&D and technical engineering capabilities.All-Energy 2015 will be held at the SECC in Glasgow on Wednesday 6 – Thursday 7 May 2015.“The decision to move the show to Glasgow has been made after long and careful consideration, and through consultation with various industry stakeholders whose valued opinion has been critical in shaping this next step in the evolution of the UK’s largest renewable energy event,” explains Event Director, Jonathan Heastie of Reed Exhibitions.“There were a number of factors to be considered; but there has been one key driver which has dominated the decision-making process and propelled us towards Glasgow… the ability to connect the UK supply chain who participate at All-Energy to new contacts from both national and international trading locations.“This new event location, and the support we will all receive from the City of Glasgow, will ensure we continue to deliver an exceptional show in terms of content, growth and attendance and, in turn, will provide exhibitors with the return on investment their commitment to the event merits.”Aptly, Glasgow will hold its first themed year in 2015 – a Green Year, with All-Energy as one of its showcase events in this programme of city-wide, high profile initiatives all aimed at getting local businesses and communities involved in sustainability. Additionally, the support that the event and all of its participants will receive from Glasgow, including its commitment to help grow attendance and participation from local policy makers, academia, research and industry will ensure All-Energy continues to grow and evolve to best reflect and serve the UK renewables industry.Councillor Gordon Matheson, Leader of Glasgow City Council, Chair of Glasgow City Marketing Bureau and Chair of Sustainable Glasgow, said: “As the UK’s first green energy super-city, Glasgow truly is the perfect home for the UK’s largest renewable energy event.“Glasgow has strong ambitions for a greener future and as a European leader in environmental sustainability, with our credentials recognised by HSBC’s Future for Business Report, describing the city as ‘a leading international force in the renewable energy sector’.“We are home to the £50 million Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult at the University of Strathclyde, which is accelerating the commercialisation of green technologies; Europe’s first Power Networks Demonstration Centre, which will drive the adoption of ‘smart’ technologies; the Centres of Excellence for three major energy developers, Scottish & Southern Energy, ScottishPower Renewables and Gamesa, as well as having the largest windfarm in Europe on our doorstep.”last_img read more
