NFU renewables expert Dr Jonathan Scurlock will be speaking again at the NEC, Birmingham, in the annual conference and exhibition for the growing clean power sector. Evolving over the past seven years from its beginnings as Solar Energy UK, this year’s Solar and Storage Live 2017 focuses on solar PV, energy storage, electric vehicle infrastructure and more around the transition to cleaner energy.
Dr Scurlock will join a panel discussion on Wednesday morning, 4 October, on 'How to deliver post-subsidy solar projects in 2018', and will participate in a following session discussing good practice in operations and maintenance of solar and storage assets. He was also re-invited onto the judging panel for the Solar Power Portal Awards, to be hosted by TV presenter Robert Llewellyn at a gala dinner on 4 October at the Hilton Metropole hotel, Birmingham NEC.
The show covers everything from how to plan charging infrastructure for electric vehicle fleets to the business models making energy storage deployment commercially viable, as well as up to 4000 megawatts of subsidy-free solar PV deployment in the pipeline, plus maintenance and optimisation. Within the exhibition area there are 35 hours of free speaker sessions, and 19 hours of paid conferences over the three days (Solar Business, Energy Storage and Future Power).
Farmers and growers with an interest in new energy technologies can register for free here. Solar and Storage Live 2017 is at the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham B40 1NT, from Tuesday 3rd October to Thursday 5th October.
