HPA supports the Energy Now Expo 2017
The Energy Now Expo, the renewable energy event designed specifically for farmers and landowners, will return to the Telford International Centre, Shropshire on 8th & 9th February 2017. Being held in association with the NFU and CLA, with support from the HPA, GSHPA and other leading organisations such as Anglia Farmers and Woldmarsh Producers, the event will showcase the continuing benefits renewable energy has to offer, as well as the best practices in energy generation and efficiency.
Attractions at the 2017 event include the large exhibition, the new product development zone, the popular renewables advice clinic, where visitors can receive one to one advice from the experts and the multi-streamed conference. Keynote presentations will be followed by dedicated sessions on AD & biogas, biomass, energy crops, energy efficiency, finance, grid connections, heat pumps, hydropower, solar and wind. Organisers are pleased to announce that Mike Nankivell, President of the HPA, will be chairing the heat pump session, in which the latest developments will be discussed and examined by a panel of specialists, including the Chairman of the GSHPA, John Findlay.
Elsewhere the conference will also include daily sessions on energy storage, as well as a debate on the Welsh renewables sector.
According to David Jacobmeyer, organiser of the Energy Now Expo, the event has developed a number of features to ensure visitors can access the most up to date, innovative opportunities available in the renewable energy sector, and there are plenty to choose from.
“The event will showcase the latest innovations and policy updates that affect farmers. And while we wait for a definite decision from the government on subsidy changes - by the event next February, we hope to have more clarity on financial support, which we will be sharing at the Energy Now Expo 2017,” says David.
Also returning to the event in 2017 will be the Energy Now awards – recognising and celebrating the achievement of UK farmers and landowners within the renewable energy and low-carbon sectors. There will be 7 categories in total - best Ad & biogas, biomass, heat pump, hydro, solar and wind schemes, plus the most carbon neutral farm award. Farmers and landowners that own a scheme that has been operational for more than 12 months should enter, with each winner receiving a £500 prize and the award itself on the night (8th February 2017). It is a chance to showcase best practices in the installation and deployment of renewable energy and organisers would encourage HPA members and their customers to apply in order to demonstrate the effectiveness of heat pumps and their role in the UK energy mix.
