Event details

Nottingham Trent University is pleased to support this event, aimed at communities and groups that are looking at renewable and green energy sources to provide energy for their local communities, as well as companies that work in energy and sustainable energy.

The event will encourage collaboration and the sharing of knowledge, for attendees to establish synergies and market opportunities, and to learn from those who have achieved success in local and export markets.

The focus will be on four renewable energy projects, some of which are running successfully, while others are still in the planning phase, including a biomass, wind turbine, inland water and an incinerator waste energy project.
