All-Energy / Dcarbonise exhibition & conference moves to August 2021

All-Energy / Dcarbonise exhibition & conference moves to August 2021

Reed Exhibitions Limited has announced that All-Energy, the UK’s largest annual renewable and low carbon energy exhibition and conference – and the co-located Dcarbonise – will now take place on Wednesday 18 and Thursday 19 August 2021 at the Scottish Event Campus (SEC).

Simon Marshall, the newly appointed Event Director for the duo of shows, explained:

“This three-month postponement from May to August means that the event now coincides with the end of Scottish school holidays and is a perfect stepping stone to COP26, being held at SEC in early November.

“All roads lead to Glasgow in 2021, and we are excited to be firmly placed as the precursor to such an important global summit, where major policy and investment decisions are expected to be formalised. All-Energy kicks off the season as the all- important platform for stakeholders across the public and private sector to showcase innovation, technology, and progressive strategies.

“The date change also ensures that SEC has time to get back to ‘business as normal’, after its invaluable use as NHS Louisa Jordan.

“Naturally, this was a collective decision from canvassing the vast majority of our exhibitors and the opinions of key stakeholders including sponsors such as the Scottish Government, ScottishPower, Shepherd and Wedderburn and Natural Power.

“We can now look forward to producing an event, which will have renewable and low carbon energy and decarbonisation at its core, with sound health and safety measures firmly in place. Reed Exhibitions has developed a formal set of enhanced health and safety protocols in collaboration with industry task forces for our future events. These will, of course, evolve to keep in step with government requirements.” (Current protocols are at http://www.reedexhibitions.com/files/Reed-Exhibitions-New-Normal-June-2020.pdf)

Scotland’s Energy Minister, Paul Wheelhouse, said:

“I am delighted that All-Energy and Dcarbonise is now scheduled to take place in August next year, especially as we look forward to a successful COP26 taking place in Glasgow soon after that.

“All-Energy and Dcarbonise have become an annual highlight for industry professionals and policymakers alike, and I congratulate Judith Patten and her team of event organisers for their great resilience over recent months which they have demonstrated through the delivery of a series of webinars, two of which I was delighted to take part in. I very much look forward to the Scottish Government’s continued engagement with the event and wish the organisers well with their planning.”

Keith Anderson, CEO of ScottishPower, a regular plenary session speaker who has also chaired three of the All-Energy webinars during 2020, commented:

“I’m delighted to hear that All-Energy Dcarbonise 2021 has now been confirmed for August next year.  In addition to being the key event in the UK energy calendar, the new dates provide a timely opportunity for the industry to come together just ahead of COP26 coming to Glasgow in November.”

Looking to the immediate future Simon Marshall added:

“All-Energy/Dcarbonise will continue to provide cutting-edge virtual engagement during the run-up to the show in August. Twenty-six online sessions were held between May and November 2020 when we held our ‘Virtual Summit’ with Scotland’s First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon and Energy Minister, Paul Wheelhouse were amongst those taking part; and attracted nearly 15,650 registrations. Well over 11,000 have attended either ‘on the day’ or ‘on-demand’.

“The postponement means, of course, that the Call for Papers will be open for longer. Found at https://www.all-energy.co.uk/en-gb/conference/call-for-papers.html, it will now close on 31 March 2021.

“We thank our exhibitors, speakers, partners, suppliers, visitors and of course the SEC for their continued support during this challenging time; the event team looks forward to seeing you all in nine months’ time!”

Connect with Green Tech and Renewable Energy businesses in Spain

Connect with Green Tech and Renewable Energy businesses in Spain

On 27th-28th January 2021, Glasgow Chamber of Commerce will be hosting a delegation of Scottish companies for a virtual trade mission to Barcelona. The mission will focus on the Renewables’ Industry and aims to attract Scottish companies working in and across these sectors who are interested in exporting and international expansion.

What does it include?

There will be the opportunity to join group sector-specific and market sessions, involving key players in the market such as Iberdrola Group. Individual business to business meetings with Spanish firms will also be a key element of the event. Glasgow Chamber will work with its Scottish companies to identify suitable business matches in order to generate as much value as possible. Furthermore, with COP26 drawing closer, it is an opportunity for businesses to connect with Spanish firms and hear about the initiatives and plans leading up to COP in both areas.

In addition to building and strengthening relationships with foreign partners, the mission is a unique opportunity to join together with like-minded Scottish firms. Collaborations and new local partnerships are often one of the many positive outcomes that we see from these initiatives.

Next steps

If you are a Scottish company within the Green Tech and Renewable Energy sector, and are interested in joining our virtual trade mission to Spain, please email internationaltrade@glasgowchamberofcommerce.com for an application form.

Applications will close on the 30th November 2020.

Why should you join?

Yes, being on a screen may create different barriers and add to the cultural challenges when in market, however over the past six months we have learnt that international opportunities and success are not confined to the ‘in person meeting’. Virtual platforms are the best we have right now. They may not be perfect, but they do allow new relationships to be formed and they do open up the international world to smaller Scottish businesses.

Are you a Scottish business looking to broaden your international connections? Are you up for the challenge of ‘virtually’ forming partnerships and expanding your business?

Glasgow Chamber would be delighted to have you join us.

Barcelona’s Energy Sector

The energy sector within Catelonia is a key industry with a number of companies developing innovative solutions in energy efficiency. Barcelona’s current energy model is based largely on fossil-fuel energy consumption, and therefore there is a real need to generate energy from local (renewable and waste) resources. The region offers many opportunities for the development of solar, wind power and biomass projects.
