A new event has been launched for the on-site renewable energy sector addressing the often overlooked but hugely important business and public sector. The Renewables Event is co-located alongside RWM (in partnership with CIWM) and The Energy Event. Together, the three shows are expected to attract over 20,000 key decision makers from across Europe.

With DECC’s 2009 Renewable Energy Directive setting a target for the UK to achieve 15% of its energy consumption from renewable sources by 2020, The Renewables Event (running for two days over 11th and 12th September 2012), will provide a platform to showcase and discover renewable energy solutions for end users such as major corporations, manufacturers, retailers and the public sector. A strong underlying theme for the event will be exploring the business case for a proactive and strategic approach to renewable energy management.

Visitors have free access to all three shows enabling them to get practical and policy advice, ensuring their organisation is aware and up to date. Figures from 2011 show that 98% of attendees were considered instrumental in purchasing decisions for their businesses and 54% have sole or joint decision making powers to invest in new products or services.
