The Oil & Renewable Energy Show 2012

Some of the best known names in renewable energy chose to become sponsors of the Oil and Renewable Energy Show 2012, including Kingspan Environmental, Worcester Bosch and Plumb Center whilst other high profile brands  also took floor space.

The breadth of technologies featured at the show was unparalleled with solar thermal, PV, biomass, heat pumps, wind and hydro being showcased alongside the latest oil-fired heating equipment.

The finishing touches were also made to an exhaustive two-day seminar series tackling diverse themes such as integrating oil and renewable energy, training for Green Deal, the Renewable Heat Incentive and the use of Energy Performance Certificates.

Respected industry commentators led the sessions from organisations including YouGen, Glow-worm, ICS, Plumb Center and NAPIT.

The event was organised by A & D Publishing – publishers of a portfolio of titles including Oil Installer and Renewable Energy Installer.

Exhibition director, Jonathan Hibbert, said: “Our show is borne out of technologies working hand in hand to achieve energy efficiency, and, without doubt, it will be the most important event on this year’s calendar for everyone involved in the specifying and installations of oil heating and renewables.

“Combined with the exhibition will be an impressive seminar programme, bringing together some of the industry’s most influential, high profile speakers.”
