‘We can help your business to stay profitable despite the UK's subsidy cuts’ – that’s the message from organisers of Solar Energy UK, at the NEC in Birmingham later this month (13-15 October).
The show, billed as the UK’s ‘largest exhibition dedicated to solar energy, renewable and low-carbon industry professionals’, is expecting 5,000 visitors and promises opportunities to build new partnerships, discover new technologies and engage with top influencers in the industry.
The seminar programme features more than 80 speakers from the UK and around the world, and 200 exhibitors will be showing off their latest technologies.
The event also incorporates the Solar Power Portal Awards 2015.
NFU chief renewable energy adviser Dr Jonathan Scurlock said: "Despite the cascade of Government cuts to renewable energy support, the NFU believes that solar power continues to offer farmers a sound investment, to manage input costs and to diversify our agricultural sector.
“Small and medium sized PV rooftops for on-site power generation make good financial sense even without subsidy – and large ground-mounted solar farms can be profitable without government support where electricity is used locally or sold to clean power customers."
