LCRI in Aberdeen for All Energy 2014
Post date: July 9, 2014
LCRI’s Publicity Officer and LCRI Marine’s Industrial Liaison Officer attended All Energy 2014 in Scotland on the 21st and 22nd May. All Energy is the UK’s largest renewable energy event, which takes place in the Exhibition and Conference Centre in Aberdeen, the European Capital of Energy.
All-Energy serves the whole of the renewable energy industry, with last year’s event attracting over 76 unique visitors from 48 countries, and 606 exhibitors from 17 countries. It showcases the complete range of renewable and sustainable technologies and is a fantastic opportunity for seeing the latest cutting edge solutions, and sourcing new partners.
This year the LCRI was based on the Welsh Government hub, along with other Welsh industry partners, including Marine Energy Pembrokeshire, and the Port of Milford Haven. As well as exhibiting on the stand, and speaking with delegates from private and public sector organisations, the LCRI staff were able to attend industry specific speakers sessions.
These included a Skype talk by Richard Branson discussing his work with The Carbon War Room, and the Energy Efficiency session, sponsored by the Welsh Government, which included talks from the UK Energy Research Centre and Energy UK.
LCRI Marine’s Industrial Liaison Officer, Gareth Potter said: “Year on year the marine energy industry grows, not just in the UK, but internationally. It’s at events like this that the evidence is really becoming visible of how this Blue growth will play a significant part in our future energy mix.”
LCRI’s Publicity Officer said “Thanks to the Welsh Government, we were able to showcase the work of the Low Carbon Research Institute to an international audience. The LCRI benefitted by being a partner on the Welsh Government stand, which attracted a lot of interest from companies and groups interested in working either with Energy partners, or specifically in Wales.
Over the course of the two days we were able to meet with representatives from renewable energy and low carbon industries, government officials, and international trade partners. The LCRI team was also able to attend fantastic seminars and talks on the latest news and updates from industry and academics. “
