John Barton, Project Director, RENEW said: “There are over 1,000 businesses and organisations operating in the energy and environmental marketplace in the North East and this number is set to increase as the region strives to establish itself at the forefront of the UK’s low carbon and sustainable energy drive. We believe there is a real need to bring everyone together in one place to connect, share expertise and knowledge, while supporting the trade and supply chain and helping members to enjoy tangible commercial results.
“We have created the Energy and Environment North East 2011 event to achieve just this and hope it will provide regional SMEs with the opportunity to network, while benefiting from a series of practical workshops and hearing from a selection of the industry’s leading figures regarding the future of the sector within the region and beyond.”
Working with businesses, communities, investors, regulators and technology suppliers RENEW helps low carbon energy and environmental technology projects make the transition from development to the marketplace. Additionally, it provides strategic support to a diverse range of businesses looking to maximise the economic opportunities and carbon reductions from the application of these projects.
