Green Energy Collective September 2016
Solar Energy UK | Clean Energy Live 2016
Preparations are now almost complete for the UK’s largest solar and clean energy exhibition Solar Energy UK | Clean Energy Live , held at the NEC in Birmingham from the 4 – 6 October.
Between COP21, Brexit and Hinkley’s approval, 2016 has been a heck of a year. It’s clear the clean energy industry needs a central place to meet to chart a path towards continued success driven by solar.
At the time of writing we’re tracking roughly 12% up on pre-registered visitors compared to last year, which was our biggest ever. We’re expecting more than 5,000 unique attendees to flock to the NEC next week.
Registration for Solar Energy UK | Clean Energy Live 2016 is completely free of charge and takes no more than five minutes of your time. The online registration process can be found here.

We will leverage our industry-leading position and expertise to meet the growing needs of the region."
Smart energy revolution 'could help to avoid UK blackouts

"We are at a moment of real change in the energy industry. From an historic perspective we created energy in big generating organisations that sent power to houses and their businesses. Now we are producing energy in those places - mostly with solar power"
