Nextgen Open for Registration

Jul 17 2013

Nextgen (UK) the largest and most established event for energy generation with a major focus on rural renewables and new for 2013 will also include urban technologies – recently launched registration for its two-day event in October where over 3,000 bioenergy professionals are expected to gather. The annual Nextgen conference and exhibition takes place on Wednesday, 9th – Thursday, 10th October 2013, at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire. Delegates are encouraged to register at www.nextgenexpo.co.uk/free.

With over 175 exhibitors from the AD & Biogas, Biomass, Energy from waste, and CHP sectors, Nextgen 2013, incorporating ebec - the largest integrated Bioenergy event in the UK – gives an insight into the opportunities and challenges around delivering new and more stringent carbon reduction and energy consumption targets. With the Government promoting the renewables agenda, legally binding EU targets to meet, and new beneficial tariffs, this is the time for Bioenergy businesses to prosper and succeed. At Nextgen 2013 the whole market is brought together - to discuss and debate the business issues, legislative challenges and opportunities which really matter, now and into the future.

With a free conference and CPD accredited education programme, Nextgen will cover a wide range of topics including Feedstock selection, Profitability, Funding and current legislation across the range of technologies. Four theatres across the exhibition will host high quality speakers from the entire renewables sector offering invaluable advice whether at the conceptual, planning, delivery or operational phase of your next project.

Event Director for Nextgen, Chris Down, said “Exceptional growth is forecast in the next three to five years due to a stable incentive landscape for biomass and biogas which will drive the UK’s renewable heat and power markets. The UK’s bioenergy market is expected to grow from £5bn to £7bn over the next five years as more and more businesses, local authorities, manufacturers, farmers and landowners adopt bioenergy as a mainstream energy source to help drive the UK towards its 2020 targets. This is the ideal platform for all those in the industry to discuss the changes, share experiences and gain valuable education and we encourage delegates to register for this fantastic opportunity.”

As the ultimate business platform for the bioenergy sector, delegates will be able to speak with key industry professionals, see live vehicle and equipment demonstrations and attend educational seminars. Designed to be clear and relevant to the different phases in renewable projects, the multi-stream conference will deliver educative presentations and topical panel discussions.

This year’s Agri-rural programme will focus on taking prospective project owners and planners through the challenges and opportunities of deploying renewables, in particular Biomass and Biogas systems. This will include an in-depth study of the process from start to finish, including selecting and specifying your renewables, sourcing feed stock, the business case, funding models, incentives, project planning, commissioning, operations, grid connection and proper lifecycle cost analysis.  A mixture of talks, panels and case studies will be offered throughout both days.  Delegates will come away better able to make an informed decision with instant access to over 175 suppliers.

Confirmed speakers in the Agri Rural programme include: Simon Proctor, Good Energy: AD Planning and set-up including the evolution of funding options; Darren McMahon, Viessman: Integrated Bioenergy technologies; Richard Gueterbeck, Cleafleau: The Business Case for onsite AD in the food and drink industries.

Nextgen’s Urban theatre is designed to give town planners, councils, developers and municipal and private building owners a deep insight into the opportunities and challenges around delivering to new and more stringent carbon reduction and energy consumption targets, with an emphasis on Energy from Waste, co-generation and district heating. Speaker topics will include: ‘How will urban environments source their electricity in the future?,’ ‘Energy from Waste – a golden future?’ as well as an urban planning masterclass.

Confirmed speakers in the Urban theatre include: Giulia Bonifaszi, Turboden: The Urban Environment: EfW, Distributed heat and CoGeneration; John Smith, EnviroPlan: Is Britain gearing up for a renewable future?; Steve Richmond, Rehau: District Heating.

“Nextgen 2013 will bring together all of the renewable energy solutions in one place at one time so decision-makers can review and compare all of the options available to them, side by side in real time. This is a great opportunity for those in the bioenergy industry to come together to share knowledge and ideas and we have no doubt that our 2013 event will be the best yet” concludes Down.
