The UK’s most-attended renewable energy event runs at Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire next month (October 7-8).

250 kW AD plant on farm in Herefordshire_275_206Now in its sixth year, Nextgen is firmly established as a leading business event for bioenergy and renewable energy generation. In 2014 the show welcomed more than 2,100 visitors, 150 exhibitors from across the supply chain and over 100 industry expert speakers.

Visitors include farmers, landowners, specifiers, consultants, local authority managers, architects, developers and project managers.

With particular focus on biomass, AD and biogas, solar, CHP, GSHP, hydrogen fuel cells and energy storage, Nextgen covers both the rural/land-based and urban sectors.

The session will look at how to build future resilience in both agriculture and energy generation, whilst also maximising the yield from land use; the role of Bioenergy in delivering energy security; dedicated energy crops and food security and developments in delivering sustainable rural transport.
