Fife showcases renewable energy assets at All-Energy UK

FIFE businesses with specialist renewable and wider energy sector expertise will joined the Invest in Fife Renewables team on the Fife stand at this year’s All-Energy UK.

The Fife stand will highlight the area’s excellent opportunities for renewable energy companies. The stand is organised by Fife Council’s Market Development Programme which offers practical and effective ways for Fife companies to participate in events and trade shows.

Burntisland Fabrications (BiFab), Narvida, Diama Energy, SMRU, BAE Systems, Houstons of Cupar, SOI Group, Briggs Marine and Environmental, York EMC and The Hydrogen Office will collectively showcase Fife as a centre of excellence for renewable technology.

Robin Presswood, Fife Council’s Business and Strategy Manager, is attending the event: “All-Energy is a perfect opportunity for us to highlight the scope within Fife’s renewable energy sector. We are developing renewable energy investments in four of our coastal towns, including Samsung’s plans for a Demonstrator turbine at Energy Park Fife. The Fife Renewables Innovation Centre is due for completion and will be powered by the installation of a Hydrogen boiler, which we believe to be a UK first. Fife’s Economic Strategy aims to develop Fife as a Centre of Excellence for Renewable Energy, with the potential of up to 28,000 people being employed in the Scottish Offshore Wind sector alone by 2020.”

All-Energy is the UK's largest renewables exhibition devoted to all forms of clean and renewable energy. It’s being held at Aberdeen’s Exhibition & Conference Centre on Wednesday, 23 and Thursday, 24 May. Last year’s event had 8,000 delegates from over 50 countries and led to over 300 notes of interest for Fife stand partners.

Barbara Whiting is Lead Officer for Renewables with Fife Council: “Attending All-Energy is of huge benefit to us. This year, together with East Coast Renewables, we will host a light lunch and networking opportunity. Taking place on Wednesday the event will bring together Scottish Enterprise, SDI, the Crown Estate, and Marine Scotland, and is open to relevant businesses in the sector. It will highlight progress over the past year and set out the challenges ahead.”
