“The free seminar programme at the Renewables Event is renowned for the quality of practical advice on offer for large industrial and commercial end-users,” says Russell Bacon, Environment Portfolio Director at i2i Events. “This year’s content builds substantially on this reputation under the watchful eye of our expert chair, Professor Rob Holdway, from Giraffe Innovation.

A dynamic line-up of speakers will be addressing key topics and issues, ranging from Government renewables policy and legislation to solar strategy, energy storage and the key financials, all brought to life by real-world applications from end-users at the cutting edge of on-site renewable deployment.”
