Renewable energy show grows to meet market demand

This year’s edition of UK renewable energy exhibition and conference All-Energy has grown by 1,250sqm.
 
The event, organised by Media Generation Events (MGE), takes place at Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre on 18-19 May. It brings together exhibitors and delegates working in renewable energy production, such as onshore and offshore wind; hydrogen and fuel cells; hydropower; wave and tidal; bioenergy and geothermal – as well as micro generation, carbon capture and storage, nuclear power, and energy efficiency.
 
Conference material includes power storage; the grid; investment, and industry perspectives on issues such as financing, health and safety and sustainable transport.
 
“We expected the exhibition to grow and added on nearly a thousand square metres when we launched the 2011 floorplan,” said event director Jamie Thompson.
 
“Demand was great and we were able to add more space, then we had to expand again; and now we have done so quite dramatically by adding a whole structure, rather than simple walkways, between our 2,350sqm (net) temporary structure and the permanent AECC hall.
 
Thompson expects exhibitors from 20 countries to take up 6,500sqm (net) in total.
 
Thompson says a minister from the Scottish parliament will also attend, but could not confirm who it would be.
 
“With the Scottish Government elections less than a fortnight before All-Energy we will not be able to announce the name of the participating Scottish Government minister until just before the show opens,” explained Thompson.

Scotland’s First Minister, Alex Salmond, used The Scottish Offshore Wind Conference and Exhibition to pledge the Scottish Government’s support for alternative energy.
