Industry conference to offer green advice

Have your say

A GREEN energy conference promises to offer businesses involved in the renewables sector “practical industry support” to help them secure long-term work in the market.

More than 200 industry leaders are expected at Renewing The Humber on May 1 at the KC Stadium, Hull. Delegates will be given advice on topics ranging from finance and doing business overseas to cutting costs and planning regulations.

The event is aimed at businesses in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire working in every area of renewable energy and across their supply chains, from on and offshore wind power to tidal, biomass, solar and air and ground source heat pumps. This is the third time Renewing The Humber has been staged. The conference will include an opportunity for businesses to take one of the exhibition stands.

Speakers already confirmed include Professor David Grant of the Logistics Institute at University Of Hull, Mark O’Reilly of Team Humber Marine Alliance, Carolyn Burgess MBE of the World Trade Centre & Language Is Everything and Mark Dixon of law firm Rollits.

Sam Pick, business development director of Renewables Network, which is one of the groups organising the event, said: “This isn’t a conference about theory or broad-vision but about useful advice and help in a hugely competitive and fast-paced market. In terms of where the industry is, this is no longer the time for sitting back – now is the time to act on securing long-term work.”
