Ecobuild puts fracking in the spotlight

The Ecobuild exhibition, staged at London’s Excel exhibition and conference centre from 5-7 March, will be discussing the value of fracking in the UK.

Leading speakers include, New Economics Foundation senior researcher and head of Climate Change and Energy Dr Victoria Johnson, Tyndall Climate Change Institute knowledge transfer fellow John Broderick, and independent peak oil consultant Dr Richard Miller.

The speakers will encourage a fracking debate in the Arena on all three days.

Fracking tests were suspended last year in the wake of two minor earth tremors near Blackpool, but energy secretary Ed Davey lifted the ban on Cuadrilla’s drillings in Lancashire last month.

Mr Davey says fracking offers a promising new potential energy resource, which could help the UK break its dependence on gas imports.
