Stellar line-ups abound at All-Energy and Dcarbonise

The duo of events being held on 15 and 16 May at Glasgow’s SEC – All-Energy, the UK’s largest renewable and low carbon energy exhibition and conference, and the co-located Dcarbonise – have long been recognised for stellar conference line-ups; and this year’s event from the opening plenary session through 56 other conference sessions and eight show floor theatres is certainly no exception. 

They range, with input from some 360 speakers in the main conference, from diving deep into every form of renewable energy applicable in the UK, to grid and networks modernisation and expansion; and the hydrogen transition to energy storage; from community engagement and benefits; to those living and working on a daily basis with solving the challenges of decarbonisation of the built environment, heat, cities/places, industry, and transport. 

There are also sessions devoted to Glasgow Climate Week, investment, cyber security, the supply chain; PPAs, skills and training, clean tech; regulations; energy systems, energy demand reduction; circularity in the energy industry; and even a lunchtime fireside chat between two legends of offshore energy activity. 

“The speakers on Day 1 include Scotland’s Cabinet Secretary for Net Zeo and Energy, Màiri McAllan MSP; Patrick Child, Deputy Director General of the European Commission’s DG Environment; Tim Pick MBE, Chair Offshore Wind Growth Partnership and former UK Offshore Wind Champion; Danielle Lane, Director of Offshore Development UK and Ireland, RWE; Laura Fleming, CEO, Hitachi Energy UK and Ireland, and those are just some of the speakers in the first two sessions,” explained Jonathan Heastie, Portfolio Director, RX Global who own and organise the duo of events. 

“Well-known names later on the 15th in our 11 conference halls include Benj Sykes, Vice President, Offshore. Head of Environment, Consenting & External Affairs at Ørsted and President of the Society for Underwater Technology, our Learned Society Patron; Susie Lind, Managing Director, BlueFloat Energy | Renantis Partnership; Eleanor Warburton, Director of Energy Systems Management & Security, Ofgem; Professor Keith Bell, Scottish Power Professor of Future Power Systems, University of Strathclyde; and Julian Leslie, Strategic Energy Planning Director, National Grid ESO. 

“We are delighted to also welcome Scott Mathieson, Network Planning & Regulation Director, SP Energy Networks; Chris Burchell, Managing Director, SSEN Distribution; Robin Tayal, Investment Director, Scottish National Investment Bank; Lindsay McQuade of Amazon; Professor Deborah Greaves of University of Plymouth, and the Supergen ORE Hub. 

“We also have renowned Chairs on Day 1, including Dame Susan Rice, Chair of Forth Green Freeport for the opening plenary session and Clare Foster, Head of Clean Energy at our Headline Sponsor, Shepherd and Wedderburn; and Lawrence Slade, CEO of the Energy Networks Association. The list of luminaries is seemingly endless! 

“That’s before you start poring over the programmes for the eight show floor theatres, with more than 260 speakers over the two days. Wednesday’s quick fire programmes look at offshore wind; hydrogen and energy storage; community and local energy; future talent - with success stories and inspirational thoughts on skills and training; and heat, built environment and transport decarbonisation (with a theatre for each of the three topics); and research and innovation. In addition some 40 academics will be with us to talk about posters on display depicting their latest work….. what a line up, I can only urge you to look to register to attend at; upload the All-Energy App and investigate it all for yourself!” 

Attendance is free of charge to all with relevant business and academic interests and covers all component parts of the event, the major exhibition with some 270 exhibitors from home and overseas; the conference and show floor theatres; and the Civic Reception that forms part of the Giant Networking evening at the Glasgow Science Centre. 

What can you see a All-Energy

Mr Heastie continues: “Today is build up day, throughout the day exhibitors are unboxing and unwrapping their exhibits and turning their stands into a reflection of their solutions be they products or expertise. 

“Today sees some of the most eye catching exhibits making an entrance into SEC’s halls. The vehicles range from the very large such as hybrid road gritter and an electric rubbish collection vehicle both from Glasgow City Council through to conventional EVs and even a quadracycle, plus the body of the Strathclyde University entry for the Shell Eco-marathon (two more universities entering this year’s event will also be on that stand). TUV’s exhibits will include a portable test facility for hydrogen refuelling stations. 

“The mobile heat pump training unit from ESP and the Energy Saving Trust will be making its first appearance at All-Energy and Dcarbonise. The fully equipped classroom travels to rural and remote areas of Scotland to deliver certified heat pump training. It can provide additional support for colleges and be an upskilling resource for industry..

“The Hydrogen showcase is always like an Aladdin’s cave of fascinating exhibits and it is not until the end of build-up day that lists of what is en route turn into a true picture of what is on display there, it very much ‘the gift that keeps giving’. One fascinating area is going to be PlusZero’s simulated building site showing how hydrogen can increasingly be used in that environment.” 

Moving away from hydrogen to tidal power, Orbital Marine Power will exhibit the latest model of their device; and wave power developers CorPower will showcase a ¼ scale buoy. They will also have a VR set available where visitors “can go inside the Wave Energy Converter to better understand how it works as well as how it will be serviced and maintained”.
