Vattenfall, the leading European energy company, will again be the principal sponsor of All-Energy, the UK's largest renewable energy exhibition and conference (Aberdeen, 19-20 May 2010) and the Swedish utility is looking forward to playing an active - and original - role at the event having developed an innovative twist that links it particularly strongly with the All-Energy name.
Lars G Josefsson, President and CEO of Vattenfall, said: "We are pleased to be lead sponsor for the All-Energy show this year because we have a promise to our customers and society to deliver reliable, affordable and greener supplies of energy. That is why Vattenfall wants to make electricity clean by 2050 and halve carbon emissions from its operations by 2030. That is why we are investing in a range of sustainable energy technologies across northern Europe, including the United Kingdom, and taking a lead in offshore wind, clean coal, biomass, nuclear power, transport, sustainable sources of heat and wave power. For us Vattenfall is all energy at All-Energy."
"It is always rewarding when a sponsor opts to repeat their involvement, we thoroughly enjoyed working with Vattenfall last year, and look forward to an equally stimulating relationship this year," said Paul Stott, Managing Director of Media Generation Events Ltd. "Indeed, their 2010 all energy at All-Energy' theme is evidence of their inspired thinking - and their commitment to renewable and sustainable energy."
Vattenfall will exhibit on the Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group pavilion at the May event and play an active role in the All-Energy multi-stream conference that looks at all renewable energy sources and at the opportunities and challenges facing the industry. Both the exhibition and conference are free to attend for all with a business/ professional interest in renewable energy and its uses. Full information and online registration at www.all-energy.co.uk
Vattenfall, which celebrated its centenary last year, is a leading European energy company owned by the Swedish people. It is the fifth largest generator of electricity in Europe and the continent's largest generator of heat. Vattenfall is working to make electricity clean and to be a climate-neutral company by 2050.
Vattenfall Wind Power is currently investing more than £1 billion and supporting around 1,500 jobs building three wind farms: Edinbane Wind Farm on Skye, Thanet Offshore Wind Farm off the Kent coast and Ormonde Offshore Wind Farm, off Barrow-in-Furness. It also operates Kentish Flats Offshore Wind Farm, also off the Kent coast.
Earlier this year it won exclusive rights from The Crown Estate, along with partner ScottishPower Renewables, to develop East Anglia Offshore Wind Farm as part of the Round Three licensing process.
Onshore it is developing a number of wind farms in Scotland and Northern England. Elsewhere in the UK, Vattenfall is investing in wave power off the Shetland coast and in Carbon Capture & Storage in Renfrew, near Glasgow and Ferrybridge in Yorkshire. www.vattenfall.co.uk
All-Energy, being held this year for the tenth successive year, is the UK's largest renewable energy exhibition and conference. The 2009 event attracted total attendance of 5,500 from 60 countries; some 380 exhibiting companies from 14 countries; and 250+/- speakers in the free-to-attend conference.
This year's exhibition is 25% larger than in 2009, and the event is held in association with RenewableUK (formerly BWEA), Scottish Renewables, UK Trade & Investment, and Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group. The Society for Underwater Technology is its learned society patron, and there are some 30 endorsing organisations including government departments, RDAs and trade associations.
The full conference programme will be online by mid-April. It includes sessions on all sources of renewable energy and on the opportunities and challenges facing the industry. Offshore wind's Round 3, and the Pentland Firth and Orkney Waters wave and tidal licences come under the conference spotlight as do a vast number of highly topical and relevant issues. There are also dedicated sessions for the finance and funding sector, for the farming community, and for communities looking to adopt renewable energy schemes, a Jobs Fair (Day 2), and an Education/Careers Day for teachers and career guidance specialists (Day 2).
