The Call for Papers for both All-Energy 2018 and the co-located Smart Urban Mobility Solutions (SUMS 2019) has been launched and is online at www.all-energy.co.uk and www.smarturbanmobilitysolutions.com. The duo of events will be held at Glasgow’s SEC on 15 and 16 May 2019.
The All-Energy 2019 conference will look at topics that come under all four ‘pillars’ of the event – renewable power; low carbon heat; energy efficiency in the built environment; and low carbon transport (via SUMS 2019).
“Decarbonisation, decentralisation, digitalisation and democratisation (i.e. end-user choice) all play important roles in the conference; so too does climate change particularly in line with the IPCC’s latest report and wider social impacts; Brexit-effects; planning for success and the alignment of data requirements through all stages of delivery; and innovative solutions and finding answers to the questions we used to ignore,” explains Event Director, Jonathan Heastie of Reed Exhibitions who own and organise the duo of events.
“SUMS not only looks at low carbon transport and charging infrastructure but at smart mobility in all its guises from connected and autonomous vehicles to smart parking/payment and multimodal journey planners. The full list of topics coming under the conference spotlight at both events is online. Both conferences are free to attend for all with relevant business/professional interests. Although the Call for Papers is only just being published I can assure all prospective conference attendees that they will be taking part in a truly world-class event.
“We look forward to reviewing a stimulating collection of submissions and sharing them with our industry ‘champions’ over the coming months and also to involving session sponsors at the earliest opportunity. The Call for Papers closes on 20 December.
“With just over seven months before the doors open at SEC for our duo of events I am delighted to report that exhibition sales continue to run ahead of where we were at this time last year, we are looking forward to a busy exhibition and conference where business is most certainly done, and that always engenders a real buzz.”
