RUSHLIGHT SHOW – virtual
Mar 10 – Mar 11 all-day

The 12th Rushlight Show, kindly headline sponsored by Innovate UK, is taking place on Wednesday and Thursday 10-11 March 2021 as a virtual event with all the interactions of a physical event.  Other sponsors confirmed so far are Granted Consultancy, Planet First and London South Bank University.  It is the leading event for cleantech companies and sustainable solutions to meet investors and financiers, corporate customers, government departments, advisers and intermediaries.

We have delayed running this event from its normal timing as we have sought a platform which can provide all the functionality that the physical event has provided so effectively in the past.  This has now been found and you will be able to have arranged meetings, live chat and on demand video chat with all the delegates throughout the event.  This includes impromptu one-to-one video chats similar to private meetings at an event.  This really does mirror a physical event and is a true step-change from most of the virtual event styles that prevailed for much of last year.

The event highlights are:

  1. The Innovation Showcase of the Cleantech Conference, with 40 companies presenting their latest cleantech and sustainability innovations, all available on demand throughout the event.
  2.  The Sustainable Solutions Market Panel, where organisations present their market-ready products and services directly to a panel and audience of leading sustainability and procurement representatives from UK organisations who are seeking to further their supply chain sustainability and resilience.
  3. The Exhibition, incorporating the Innovate UK and other Showcases, together with the poster exhibition, amounting to over 100 of the latest innovations in cleantech and sustainability.
  4. UK Energy session, which will set out the pathway to Net Zero 2050, with a particular focus on hydrogen, CCUS and bioenergy.  This is a must attend event for anyone with an interest in UK power generation, the energy market, transport systems and fuels.
  5. The Natural Capital & Resourceful session, in association with the Circular Economy Club, with a keynote covering the state of our natural capital, with particular reference to biodiversity, air, sea and freshwater environments, woodland and soil.  The session will also provide a state of the nation address and discussion on the circular economy, its role in the Net Zero future, some of the successes so far and the key issues to be resolved.
  6. Private Investor Lounge for live investor pitches.
  7. Networking as you would do in a physical event with open and private bubbles, one-to-one, exhibitor interaction and business card introduction, all on video chat, as well as live chat and scheduled meetings.

The total audience for the whole event is expected to exceed 500 and will include cleantech senior management, investors, advisers, corporate customers, sustainability professionals, key officials from government departments and local authorities, media, consultants specialising in the various sectors and other sector participants.

Full event details are available at www.rushlightevents.com/rushlight-show.  With delegate places for the whole Show starting at £50/ £100 plus VAT, this event is designed to be both informative and exceptional value for money.  Registration for all aspects of the event is HERE.

Companies interested in presenting in the Innovation Showcase of the Cleantech Conference, to the Sustainable Solutions Market Panel or in the private Investor Lounge pitching session merely have to register as a delegate(s) and then apply for one of the remaining slots.

Smart H2, Hydrogen Optimisation – WEBINAR @ Virtual Event
Mar 10 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

The first in the series of Hydrogen GenComm webinars on March 10 is titled: ‘Smart H2, Hydrogen Optimisation’.

The webinar will focus using Green H2 and optimising its use economically, environmentally, commercially and socially as SMART H2, and accelerating our energy transition journey to a zero CO2 destination.

Dr Bodo Groß, from GenComm partner IZES gGmbH will open the webinar setting the scene for Hydrogen optimisation.

GenComm Programme Manager Paul McCormack will moderate the webinar.

Michael Reinstaedtler of Robert BOSCH gGmbH will speak on ‘Optimising Green H2 for Greening Industrial Energy’

Hermann Guss, Network Manager, Automotive Saarland, will speak on SMART H2.

Jan Hildebrand, Head of Department of Environmental Psychology at IZES gGmbH will speak on ‘Public Acceptance and Participation concerning Hydrogen applications’.

The theme of the webinar is to show how we can produce and use green hydrogen in an industrial environment in an economic way. Michael Reinstaedtler will present on the work of BOSCH in Homburg about sector coupling of different applications based on Hydrogen. Hermann Guss will explain a broader context for the city of Homburg through coupling of different industrial sites in Homburg. Jan Hildebrand will show how we can achieve successful projects through various participation processes.

Paul Mc Cormack stated: “Hydrogen is the catalyst driving Europe’s energy transition. Optimising this journey delivery, SMART H2 through valorisation of the Hydrogen supply chain, production, storage and use is key to creating a successful Hydrogen Europe. The GenComm Spring series of H2 webinars is focused on SMART H2 looking at how we can optimise Green H2 to deliver increased benefits across the Hydrogen chain, accelerating cost reductions for hydrogen production, transmission, distribution, retail and end applications.”

Dr Bodo Groß, said: “Within the last three years we have successfully established three pilot plants in the NWE (North West Europe) area. This has resulted in many other Hydrogen activities and projects to put the regions involved in an excellent position with regard to the application and use of Hydrogen-based technologies.”

Michael Reinstaedtler, said: “Climate change is one of the biggest challenges for mankind. But we can make a difference by heading towards the Hydrogen Society. Bosch Homburg is building up a Connected Hydrogen Cycle as a blueprint for sector coupling. This is truly ‘Invented for life’. “

Hermann Guss, said: “Hydrogen is an important and valuable element for a future green economy, so we have to use it smart.”

Jan Hildebrand said: “The transformation towards a hydrogen economy system is only possible with society-therefore we need participatory planning approaches.”

Since 2017 Michael Reinstaedtler has been the Head Of Manufacturing Engineering FCEV Components and Connected eH2-Cycle, at the BOSCH plant in Homburg.

Previously he was the Head of Development Common Rail Rail Bosch Plant Jihlava (Czech Republique), Head of Lead Plant Development Common Rail Injector and Rail, Bosch Plant Homburg, Senior Expert & Technical Coordinator for High Horse-Power Fuel-Injection Equipment, Bosch Plant Hallein (Austria) , Team Leader for Mission Profiles & Validation, Bosch Stuttgart, and a Reliability Engineer, Bosch Stuttgart.

Herman Guss, Network Manager, Automotive Saarland has a Master of Science in Industrial Engineering at htw Saar, (University of Applied Sciences) in Saarbrücken. Hermann started his career in the field of 3D coordinate measuring in R&D and applications engineering at several companies. He then moved to IZES as a researcher in the energy economics department where he was responsible for supporting and consulting regional agents interested in e mobility including hydrogen applications. Now he is Network (Cluster)Manager of the Automotive Saarland cluster of the government of the Saarland funded business development organisation Saaris.

Jan Hildebrand has been the head of the Department of Environmental Psychology at IZES gGmbH since 2016. Before that he was team leader of the Environmental Psychology research group at the University of Saarland. Jan’s research interests include the acceptance of renewable energies and related energy infrastructures, conflicts and stakeholder perspectives in the energy sector as well as public participation processes and their psychological dimensions. He is currently co-ordinating the research on public acceptance of P2X technologies within the flagship project Kopernikus P2X.

Dr Bodo Groß since 2007 has been the Head of Department, Technical Innovations at IZES gGmbH. His main work areas include the Implementation of innovative concepts in the field of regeneratively supplied infrastructure for alternative mobility concepts – especially for battery and fuel cell electric vehicles – as well as in the fields of low-exergetic heat utilisation, development and optimisation of low-emission biomass boilers, design and development of electronic hardware and software components.

Paul McCormack is currently managing several international projects including the GenComm project which seeks to address the barriers preventing the greater integration of renewables into our energy matrix and to navigate a new energy pathway to energy security. GenComm (GENerating energy secure COMMunities); is a Smart Hydrogen (SMARTH2) Integrated renewable energy, generation and storage project designed to develop a new model for exploiting generated electricity from renewable sources to provide energy security for remote communities. The GenComm project will demonstrate how Hydrogen as an energy carrier can be the new energy pathway and overcome the current obstacles blocking greater utilisation of renewable energy in our energy consumption matrix.

SolarPower Summit ONLINE @ Virtual Event

Join us for the second digital edition of the SolarPower Summit!

The year 2021 is not just “any year”. Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, European economies and industrial sectors have been under extreme pressure, and European’s lives have changed profoundly. The European Recovery Plan adopted by EU Member States in July 2020 aimed not only to mitigate the devastative impacts of the pandemic, but to seize a historic opportunity to revive our economies and industries, placing the fight against climate change at the heart of Europe’s future job creation and growth strategy. 

The European Green Deal and EU commitment to achieving climate neutrality by 2050 have therefore taken a whole new dimension. Could it be the gateway to sustainable growth? Creating jobs and new businesses, while ensuring a heathier and more secure environment for all Europeans?

The European solar sector has demonstrated its immense growth potential, and its resilience to drive sustainable growth in the long-term. But there is much more to harvest. Solar energy is the most job intensive energy source, creating more than 4 million jobs globally. Is it also the most versatile and affordable energy source in history, supporting the competitiveness of EU businesses, the sustainability of European homes, and spreading well beyond the energy sector.

The 2021 edition of the SolarPower Summit is 100% dedicated to driving sustainable change, and making the recovery a true European success story.
