Emap has recently announced a new content-led B2B exhibition: The Renewables Event. The show explores renewable energy solutions for major end users such as major corporations, manufacturers, retailers and the public sector.

The show will run alongside its two market leading events: The Energy Event and RWM (Resource and Waste Management), taking place on 11th and 12th September 2012 at the Birmingham NEC.

The free to attend event will attract Environmental Managers, Energy Managers and Sustainability professionals as well as senior business professionals, enabling them to :

Learn more about which renewable technologies provide solutions for business
Understand the investment required and the payback periods
Meet providers and experts who can provide suitable solutions
Discover more about incentives and schemes that will ease the cost burden

Alison Jackson, MD of Emap’s environment portfolio, points out, Energy costs are on a steep incline, making renewable energy solutions more viable, although there are considerable knowledge gaps. With the UK’s commitment to a low carbon future, energy users are deciding their strategy to achieve a greener energy mix. It was always our intention to increase our focus on renewable energy, once we had transferred the event to its new home in the NEC.

Research carried out since we acquired The Energy Event confirms that end users really want to learn more about commercial renewable energy opportunities. RWM already has a large energy from waste section and this new dedicated show will link it with the Energy Event to allow visitors the opportunity to see the broadest range of current and future energy technologies. The event will provide education, information and quality networking with solution providers.

The show will primarily focus on viable technologies that major energy users are now implementing:

Solar PV
Solar thermal
Energy from Waste
Micro CHP
Bioenergy- including biomass, biogas and biofuels
Ground source heat pumps

The timing for the show is perfect, as end users look to reduce energy bills and find low carbon solutions. Whilst the UK’s Renewable Energy Strategy means that it must generate 15% of energy from renewables by 2020, it is currently only achieving around 3%. Making businesses pay the cost of carbon emissions coupled with incentives such as FITs means that UK businesses now have a better business case for investment. There is still a lot of uncertainty and unease surrounding the justification of the massive investments required. -Our show will inform end users, helping them to make the right decisions and purchase the right solutions, comments Jackson.
