For the first time at the annual exhibition, there will be pavilions dedicated to energy storage, smart infrastructure, heat, and low carbon transport infrastructure – the latter 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/region, will share information on support mechanisms provided to assist trade with their country/region and introduce organisations from the country/region that are eager to establish international trading partnerships.
All elements of All-Energy remain free to attend and include the exhibition, the conference and the now-traditional Giant Networking Evening.
“We know there are plenty of challenges for the industry we serve, but there are also many new opportunities. These range from working with new supply chain partners (some in other areas of the low carbon economy), to meeting and doing business with new types of customers including cities, large energy end-users and international colleagues. That’s why, as the UK’s largest low carbon event, we are introducing plenty of new and relevant content, and attracting new and relevant contacts, all designed to inspire and stimulate and lead to new business opportunities for our exhibitors,” explains Event Director, Jonathan Heastie, of Reed Exhibitions.
“To this end, we are seeing the exhibition filling up with a strong blend of traditional renewable energy and new low carbon solution providers and, with the publication of the Call for Papers, practical steps are being taken to attract speakers on a wide range of subjects to reflect this breadth and depth. Combined, all our steps will lead to an even better experience for our visitors.”
Now is the time when all eager to share news of their projects/developments, interesting case histories or air their views on a myriad of related subjects can submit 300-word abstracts for consideration by planning committees and session ‘champions’. The call for papers remains open until Friday 11 December 2015.
Conference topics and streams

- Carbon capture and storage
- Cities – smart/ICT
- Cities – sustainable/decarbonisation
- Community renewables
- Data connectivity (sensors, controls and networks)
- Decarbonisation of the food and drink industry
- Decarbonisation of the retail industry
- District heating
- Energy efficiency – business (including retrofit)
- Energy from waste (EfW)
- Energy storage (including electrical, thermal and all storage media)
- Energy systems
- Farming community renewables
- Finance and funding
- Grid and smart grid
- Heat networks
- Hydrogen and fuel cells
- Local energy economies
- Offshore wind – encompassing all stages at home and overseas, and once again including our floating turbines session
- Onshore wind
- Onsite renewables
- Renewable heat
- Skills and training
- Solar (PV and thermal)
- Smart meters (demand side management/monitoring systems)
- Sustainable transport (vehicles and infrastructure)
- Wave and tidal
- Ideas not covered by any of the above………………… .
Once again the All-Energy quick-fire presentation seminar theatres will be a feature on the exhibition show-floor. There will be theatres dedicated to wave and tidal (with a repeated programme on Day 2) and to community energy schemes, and business energy efficiency (each one day); and again abstracts can be submitted specifically for those.
There will also be opportunities for project/device quick-fire updates at lunch times in the offshore wind, and the sustainable cities theatres (also on the exhibition show-floor).
Once again there will have an area on the exhibition show-floor devoted to poster presentations. This is exclusively for academics, who can mark their abstract submission accordingly.
