Energy Now Expo returns to the Malvern Showground in February (16 - 17), following a successful first event in 2010.
Operations Manager, John Wilesmith
Run in association with the NFU and the CLA and supported by the Three Counties Agricultural Society, it is the only event of its kind, and the perfect platform for showcasing the very latest renewable energy technologies and services available to farmers and landowners.
The two-day event will embrace a whole host of energy topics; financial incentives and planning, the sale of energy to the National Grid, and the carbon footprint, and includes a conference with talks, discussions and workshops.
High profile speakers include Mervyn Bowden, Head of Energy Management at Marks & Spencer, Lucy Hopwood, Land and Agriculture Manager at the National Non-Food Crop Centre and Richard Collins, Group Biomass Manager at Countrywide.
The Malvern Showground has recently received its ISO 14001 Environmental Accreditation and Operations Manager, John Wilesmith believes that the Expo is a vital addition to the Society’s annual calendar.
He said: “As we implement our own environmentally-friendly practices on site, it is especially important that we host events like the Energy Now Expo. We must encourage both farmers and landowners across the country to consider how they might also incorporate more sustainable methods into their business operations, and then offer them the relevant support and advice to facilitate that process.”
Energy Expo 2011, organised by Renewable Energy Events Ltd, takes place on 16-17 February at the Malvern Showground. Opening times from 9-5.30pm. The exhibition is free to attend for those that pre register at www.energynowexpo.co.uk or pay £5 at the gate. For more details on the conference visit the website, call 01293 854405 or email.
