Everything is Renewable at Energy 2018
A
fter some sharp falls in
investment in green energy in
recent years, 2018 is shaping
up to be an interesting year for the
renewables industry.
This is why the focus of this year’s
Energy 2018 show is solely on
renewables. Taking place from 9 to 11
October as part of the UK’s largest
construction event, UK Construction
Week (UKCW), there are many issues
up for discussion including:
New policy thinking for the low
energy retrofit sector coming out of
the Each Home Counts review
New developments in electric
vehicles
An increasing focus on how Britain
will implement the clean growth
strategy to meet its legally binding
carbon budgets
UK energy policy and industry
experts debate on the likely outcome
for the sector post-Brexit.
Former Green Party leader and current
Sheffield MP, Natalie Bennett, will be
taking on some of these hot topics in the
REA
Theatre,
alongside
Nina
Skorupska, chief executive at REA, and
Gareth Williams, managing director at
Caplor Energy.
Sessions in the REA Theatre will also
cover new innovations in clean fuels,
battery storage, and electrical vehicles
and how they work with the built
environment. Energy 2018 will also host
the REA Conference on 11 October.

Nathan Garnett, UKCW event director,
said:
“There’s so much going on in the energy
sector at the moment, and we have a
great line up of events and experts at
Energy 2018 to challenge policy makers
and the industry alike.
“This show is both a networking hub and
a place to discover new technologies and
energy saving ideas within a wider range
of interconnected industries. So the
Innovation Trail is returning to the show,
and we’ll be looking at how energy still
critically fits into the future of
construction, which is our theme for
UKCW this year.”
The Innovation Trail provides the perfect
opportunity to see what cutting edge
products are on offer for the energy
sector with exhibitors including Carbon-4
Thermal Systems, Ecovolt, Laminaheat,
Quality Essential Distribution and
Solecco Solar.
Other exhibitors at the show include the
Renewable Energy Association, Eland
Cables, EON Energy, Flogas, G2
Energy, and Libra Energy.
This year also sees the launch of the
UKCW Role Models Campaign to
champion the existing talent in the
industry and to inspire the next
generation.
Role models are taking part in an
outreach programme, going to colleges
and schools in the coming months to talk
to students and teachers at key stages
of their education to explain what
inspired them to choose construction as
a career and to bust any myths around
the image of construction.
37 inspiring men and women, including
Daniel Sullivan, electrical design
engineer at Ridge & Partners LLP, have
recently been shortlisted for this
campaign, and the overall Role Model
of the Year will be announced on 10
October.
Debates on major national and
international construction issues will
take place on the UKCW Stage.
Speakers already confirmed include
Phil Wilbraham, expansion programme
director at Heathrow; Bridget Rosewell
OBE, commissioner at the National
Infrastructure
Commission;
Ben
Derbyshire, RIBA president; and Ruth
Davidson, National Housing Federation
executive director.
Other benefits for visitors include an
extensive programme of free CPD
sessions and the Beer & Ale Festival
with hot food and live entertainment.
