“There are very significant benefits in becoming involved in the circular economy, both for individual businesses and for the city economy as a whole”

Amsterdam-based specialists Circle Economy. A key project being delivered in

co-operation with Circle Economy is City Scan, which will focus on the food and drink sector and the circular opportunities within that sector. Central to Glasgow Chamber’s presence

at All-Energy will be outlining the work of the Green Business Network, which will have a presence on the Glasgow Chamber exhibition stand. Te Network exists to champion the case

for ‘going green’ and encouraging Glasgow businesses to explore this and the opportunities that spring from it. Cheryl McCulloch, from Glasgow

Chamber’s Projects Team, said: “We want to make it easy for Glasgow businesses to understand the significant business benefits of becoming ‘green’ and make it simple for them to implement relevant policies and practices regardless of their level of previous involvement.” All-Energy 2015 was hailed as a resounding

success with 8250 visitors coming to the city event from more than 50 countries. Te event

hosted more than 400 speakers at its huge range of sessions and more than 450 exhibitors representing many different countries and types of business. Jonathan Heastie of Reed Exhibitions, the

All-Energy Event Director, said: “Te feedback has been hugely positive, we’ve had people coming in from all over the UK and Europe.” For the first time there will be pavilions

dedicated to energy storage, smart infrastructure, heat, and low carbon transport infrastructure – the later alongside the low carbon transport demonstration area. Another feature will be the International

Trade Exchange, an area where officials from a range of countries will showcase commercial opportunities within their country or region and will share information on support mechanisms provided to assist trade with their area. Tose involved in this strand of the

event will introduce organisations from the country or region that are eager to establish international trading partnerships. All elements of All-Energy remain free to atend and include the exhibition, the

conference and the now-traditional Giant Networking Evening. All-Energy 2016 will feature nine or more

conference streams and three quick-fire seminar theatres, with well over 400 speakers taking part over the two days. Tere are two dedicated conference

theatres on the exhibition show floor – one for offshore wind presentations and discussions; the other for smart sustainable cities topics. Both are sponsored by Glasgow

Chamber member Shepherd and Wedderburn, as is the wave and tidal quick-fire seminar theatre, primarily featuring short presentations by wave and tidal developers of devices and/or projects. Clare Foster, Partner, Shepherd and

Wedderburn, explained: “As the UK’s largest renewable energy event, All-Energy continues to be an important date in the diary of Shepherd and Wedderburn’s energy and natural resources practice. “Te decision to continue our support of

the event as headline sponsor for another year was an easy one. All-Energy atracts a truly global audience and provides an excellent opportunity for the Shepherd and Wedderburn team to meet with both clients and industry contacts. “What’s more, the great variety of

conference sessions and seminars allows us to showcase our expertise and experience in the renewable energy sector. We are looking forward to a great All-Energy 2016.”
