A group of key UK events for the energy efficiency, renewables
and water industries takes place next week amid industry concerns
over a number of issues ranging from reduced subsidies and new
legislation to market deregulation. The Energy Event, the Water
Event and the Renewables Event (NEC, Birmingham, from September
15-16) have lined up strong conference and seminar programmes
and wide range of exhibitors.
Organiser i2i Events has also announced a new 'business matchmaking'
service. Energy Connects provides exclusive one-to-one meetings
between visitors and exhibitors. Once registered, visitors will
be able to log in to an online portal and arrange meetings with
exhibitors and other pre-registered visitors.
"The Energy Event takes place at a key time in the calendar
to assess the new political landscape's likely impact on
UK energy policy," said i2i's Russell Bacon. "The
Energy Saving Opportunity Scheme, issues around the security
of supply and climate talks scheduled for late 2015 will also
affect how energy business is conducted."
