All Energy 2012 preview: new features revealed

Offshore Maintenance – where offshore wind meets oil and gas; Smart Energy, focusing on energy efficiency, energy management, micro- and onsite generation; and the Low Carbon Vehicle area powered by ITM Power’s HFuel Here refuelling system. The Offshore Maintenance and Smart Energy zones feature seminar areas as well as clustered exhibitors.

As with previous years, UKTI (UK Trade and Investment) will also have a presence at the show, providing visitors and exhibitors to meet with specialists from Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, France, Germany, India, Japan, Mexico, Portugal, Spain, South Korea, Saudi Arabia and the USA.

Eleven sector specific trails are designed to help visitors around the show, and ensure that exhibitors see footfall on their stand from relevant buyers/visitors.

Set to launch for two days on 23-24 May, All Energy 2012 will also showcase “world-class speakers”, country specialists from 14 nations on hand for one-to-one meetings; and one of The Crown Estate’s “UK offshore wind supply chain seminars”.

The opening plenary session features input from both the UK and Scottish government with speeches from both UK energy minister Charles Hendry and Scottish energy minister Fergus Ewing MSP. Health and Safety Executive board member David Gartside will also speak, as a reminder that safety within the rapidly expanding industry is of paramount importance.

In addition, there will be input from The Crown Estate’s new head of offshore Wind, Huub den Rooijen; Andrew Jamieson, chair of the Offshore Wind Reduction Task Force, and chairman of RenewableUK; biofuel expert Professor Martin Tangney; Graham Cooley of ITM Power, as well as senior representatives of Gamesa Wind UK, Iberdrola, Alstom, EDP Renewables UK, and EDP Inovacao.

Event manager, Jamie Thompson of Reed Exhibitions said: “In May 2011 we attracted some 8,000 people from 50+ countries and 580 exhibitors. The surge in renewable energy globally continues apace, and our exhibitors in our major exhibition come from nearly 20 countries this year. Our exhibitor list grows on a daily basis, with its growth keeping in line with our online visitor registrations. We are looking forward to a highly successful show in late May.”

Renewable Energy Focus is proud to be the official "Innovation in wind technology" media partner for this year's All-Energy event in Aberdeen, taking place on 23-24 May.

The All-Energy Exhibition & Conference is the UK's largest renewables event devoted to all forms of clean and renewable energy. It is being held at an important time as the UK continues to assume a dominant role in the offshore wind sector and many companies look to the immense supply chain opportunities this brings.
