ALL-ENERGY A Great Success Story


RENEWABLEUK


RenewableUK is the trade and professional body for the UK wind and marine renewables industries. Formed in 1978, and with 640 corporate members, RenewableUK is the leading renewable energy trade association in the UK. Our primary purpose is to promote the use of renewable power in and around the UK, both onshore and offshore. We act as a central point of information for our membership and as a lobbying group to promote renewable energy to government.

Here’s to great success for Wind Energy Network Magazine! Similarly, ten years ago All-Energy was a new venture. Now it is the UK’s largest renewable energy exhibition and conference, with over 7000 from 55 countries attending the 2010 event, which attracted more than 450 exhibitors from 16 countries, and 270+ speakers in the free-to-attend multi- stream conference.


Just 350 people attended the first All- Energy held at Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre over two snowy February days in 2001. The venue remains All-Energy’s ‘home’, but the dates moved speedily to May to avoid snow-risk! Initially conceived as a “wet and windy show” the organisers of the annual event were delighted that both BWEA (now RenewableUK) and Scottish Renewables agreed, early on, to ‘in association’ status, and since then have been strong supporters, and of great assistance in conference planning. Their members gain discounted space charges, so it’s a win:win situation.


By the third show All-Energy had evolved to encompass all renewables not just the ‘wet and windy’. “Let the market decide”, was the wise advice of one exhibiting company, and that is what has happened, with all forms of renewables represented in the exhibition and at the conference.


Naturally, wind – both onshore and offshore – plays an important part role in the All-Energy conference. For reasons of topicality it is too early to say what will be on the conference programme for All- Energy 2011 (18-19 May 2011) but it will certainly see all key issues, challenges, and opportunities facing the industry firmly on the agenda.


The 2010 conference included a DECC/Crown Estate session devoted to Round 3; the launch of the Offshore Valuation Study; the POWER cluster (Pushing Offshore Wind Energy Regions) mid-term conference: Aberdeen


Renewable Energy Group’s ‘call to arms’ to the offshore oil and gas supply chain, urging them to ‘grasp the offshore wind nettle’, and much more. On the onshore front, ScottishPower Renewables’ Andrew Jamieson (now chairman of RenewableUK) delivered a keynote address ‘Don’t let onshore wind get lost in the rush for offshore’ and planning, health and safety, and maintenance and operations came under the conference spotlight.

SUMMARY We thought it appropriate to leave Judith to last, but certainly not least! We think she sums up the enthusiasm of the whole industry.


We know that there are many more organisations and associations with similar aims and aspirations so we would like to hear from you and feature you in future publications.


LET’S KEEP COMMUNICATING!
