Sustainable Energy Ireland (SEI) has announced details of The Energy Show - the annual event for Ireland's energy professionals, which will be held at the RDS Industries Hall, Dublin on the 25th and 26th of April.
The event is now recognised as Ireland's showcase for manufacturers and suppliers of sustainable energy technologies and is expected to be attended by approximately 4,000 people over the two days.
The Energy Show is a two-day trade exhibition and seminar programme, covering the practical aspects of energy efficiency and renewable energy. Almost 900 delegates attended last year's seminars and this number is expected to increase further in 2007. The seminars provide an opportunity for professionals with a responsibility for - or an interest in - energy in business, to interact and gain fresh insights into topical aspects of energy efficiency and renewable energy.
This year's programme includes seminars on -
* Effective Energy Management
* Renewable Energy in Buildings
* Innovative Commercial & Public Buildings
* Renewable Electricity
* Liquid Biofuels
* Energy Pricing and Trends
* Energy Saving Opportunities
* Solid Biomass.
David Taylor, Chief Executive, SEI said - "The growth in the sustainable energy sector over the past twelve months - and the increased level of interest in the Energy Show - clearly demonstrates that energy cost and availability issues and a willingness to embrace sustainable energy are now high on the national agenda."
Over 100 exhibitors will be present at this year's event, covering a wide variety of areas, including -
* Sustainable Building Technologies
* Energy Management Services
* Combined Heat and Power
* Metering and Monitoring Systems
* Heating Systems
* Lighting Technology
* Solar, Wind and Bio-Energy.
Interest in the event has been such that exhibition space for the Energy Show 2007 has been fully subscribed since January. Among the attendees will be -
* construction and engineering professionals
* energy, environmental and waste managers
* forestry and timber professionals - and
* local authority employees.
In addition to Irish-based attendees, an increased number of visitors from outside Ireland are expected to attend.
