Energy Solutions Expo, the UK’s fastest growing energy management event, returns to London Olympia from 7 – 8 October 2009.

Supported by key associations including the National Energy Foundation and the Energy Institute, Energy Solutions Expo will offer more innovative features, complimentary educational content and industry renowned exhibitors than ever before.

The event is part of Working Buildings 2009 which is comprised of three co-located events: Energy Solutions Expo; M&E – The Building Services Event, the UK’s only dedicated building services event and Total Workplace Management, the UK’s largest FM and estates event.

Hundreds of the industry’s leading companies will be showcasing their latest developments at the extensive exhibition including Carbon Trust, ENER.G, Monodraught, PowerPerfector, Powerstar and t-mac Technologies.

Energy Solutions Expo has consistently evolved since its inception to reflect the most important issues facing energy users. 2009 will continue this trend as the event introduces Sustainable Reality - a brand new series of complimentary seminars focussing on the practical delivery of sustainability and the implications for businesses and other organisations.

Taking place in The Sustainable Reality Seminar Theatre, the new educational programme will feature more than 12 hours of free seminars and 20 expert speakers who will provide insight, practical information and direction to help turn a company’s sustainability agenda into reality.

Speakers include:

? Anna Halcro-Johnston, The Carbon Trust

? Craig Simmons, Technical Director, Best Foot Forward (BFF)

? Jacqueline Balian, CIBSE

? Professor Jim Skea, UKERC

? David Penfold, Head of Sustainability and Innovation, Sainsburys

? Kate Dunk, Energy Institute

? Dr Michael Gell, Xanfeon

? Richard Brailsford, Project Director, AECOM

In addition, the event will host a further complimentary educational programme in The Public & Private Sector Seminar Theatre. Featuring case studies from some of the industry’s leading companies, visitors will have the opportunity to gain insight into the latest trends and developments from the likes of Mitsubishi Electric, Energy Institute, Earth Energy and powerPerfector.

As the industry evolves, so does Energy Solutions Expo to ensure visitors are able to address all their professional needs under one roof. Energy Solutions Expo has therefore introduced new and innovative feature areas for 2009 to compliment the established mainstays of the event. One such feature is Be2Camp at Working Buildings - a facilitated, participant-driven "unconference" centered around Web 2.0 and the built environment. Over the two days there will be four themed participative sessions. Within each theme, topics will be selected by the prospective audiences, with a running order emerging in the weeks and days running up to the event. Visitors will be able to suggest the topics, volunteer to speak and nominate speakers.
