Renewable Energy Exchange - Newcastle!

Following on from our sell out success at Renewable Energy Exchange (REX) Yorkshire in Harrogate earlier this month, we’re attending the North East next event at Newcastle Racecourse, Gosforth Park on Thursday 20th November.

Just to recap, REX events are ideal for landowners, farmers, businesses, schools and all others looking to invest in renewable projects and take advantage of the Feed-in Tariff and the Renewable Heat Incentive schemes.

This networking event creates a market-place that enables those interested in investing in renewable technologies to have a series of pre-arranged appointments with potential suppliers and attend a programme of roundtable discussion groups.

Buyers can then review their options and make well-informed decisions as to the best technology to use and the right installer to work with.

On the run-up to the event, buyers go online and select the individuals whom they would like to have an appointment with.

All meetings are then pre-arranged and scheduled on the basis of mutual interest. This service is now LIVE!

Phil Blair will be hosting a roundtable discussion on Solar PV:

10:30 – 11:20 Solar PV – commercial installations explained...

Solar Energy UK Event – 14th October 2014

Solar Energy UK is the largest solar industry trade show of the year hosting around 4,000 visitors. Predictably the event is targeted at us, as solar professionals, but it is also a good place to hear about what’s going on behind the scenes with Government policy, regulatory bodies or new research from high profile speakers such as Amber Rudd, the new Minister for Energy & Climate Change.

Amber, as a key supporter of the solar industry, revealed that DECC will be launching a consultation over a move to allow Feed-in Tariff payments to be transferred from one commercial building to another. This is the beginning of a concerted effort to remove barriers for commercial rooftop installations, a sector which remains under explored.
