Renewable energy conference set for Sheffield

Companies wanting to develop in the low-carbon and renewable energy sector are invited to a two-day conference in Sheffield.

Rexpo is the creation of business development and communication specialists Square 5 and efficiency, quality and sustainability experts Think Zero UK.

They have joined forces with The Blue Shed venue in the Lower Don Valley to organise the event which is due to take place at the same time as Sheffield hosts MADE: The Entrepreneur Festival.

Speakers will include energy minister Greg Barker, Sheffield City Region Local Enterprise Partnership chairman James Newman and representatives from Sheffield-based green energy generation and storage specialist ITM Power and Able UK.

Rexpo’s organisers say the low carbon and renewable energy marketplace is projected to be worth £4 trillion by 2015.

James Newman told Sheffield’s The Star: “Renewable and low carbon energy is a key sector and I am delighted that an industry led initiative is happening within this region.

“Renewable energy is playing a pivotal role in rebalancing the UK economy and the event will demonstrate our region’s passion, ability and expertise within this sector.”

Rexpo starts on Tuesday, September 18 with discussions about the latest developments in marine energy, biomass, onshore and offshore wind, nuclear, carbon capture and storage and other green energy fields.

The second day will focus on discussing the Green Deal, the government’s scheme to make the nation’s homes more energy efficient, which is due to be launched in October. Speakers will include representatives of Carillion Energy Services and Stroma.
