Birmingham is all set to host a conference and exhibition from the 26th – 28th of October to pull together all contributors of the solar industry. The exhibition is expected to attract over 600 companies relating to the photovoltaics and solar thermal sectors.
Key speakers including Energy and Climate Change Minister Greg Barker, and other members of the DECC will be attending to support the people of Birmingham to becoming a more energy efficient society.
Birmingham is already one of the leaders in the use of solar technology boasting one of the largest domestic PV projects in the UK, delivered by the Birmingham Energy Savers initiative. Birmingham City Council and Birminham Environmental partners are aiming to help the city become more energy efficient through the installation of pv panels, and the council has already made plans to install on 10,000 council rooftops.
Solar Power UK is a three day exhibition, at least four specialised conferences with additional training sessions and educational seminars. The conference aims to explore government policy, the industry supply chain, and key themes to sustain solar power in the UK.
