Future Resource Expo Returns

The long-awaited return of Future Resource expo is finally drawing closer, and Energy Manager Magazine are proud to be partnered with the biggest UK sustainability event of its kind.

Taking place on September 11 and 12 at the NEC Birmingham, Future Resource is the UK’s UK’s leading event for energy and water efficiency; and is now home to the inaugural Future IoT expo. Ticket registrations are open – to secure yours please visit futureresourceexpo.com.

Future Resource was created last year after the organisers realised the untapped potential of such an essential sector for our collective futures.

The event boasts a 3,000 strong crowd, comprised of leading local authorities and Government departments, large retailers, commercial and industrial end users, as well as energy and water suppliers, and trade associations. This substantial audience of industry leaders and influential buyers come to Future Resource with the primary purpose of discovering new solutions and meeting suppliers to make their visions a reality.

Here is our first look at what is in store for this year…

An electrifying lineup

This year visitors will be treated to notable seminars from Toyota GB, Department for Transport, Siemens PLC, and Nestle’s Head of Sustainability – Anna Turrell.

There will be two keynote seminars from National Grid; Mark Herring is the Strategic Team Lead, and his seminar will look at the further need a smart and flexible energy system, if Great Britain are to achieve the 2050 decarbonisation target. Graeme Cooper is a Project Director, and will focus his seminar on energy networks, and the need for a new infrastructure which is ready to support the UK’s transition, whilst minimising the impact on the bill payer.

Both of National Grid’s keynote speakers hold respected positions within and their collective expertise will provide an unrivalled insight into a huge transformation that will affect everyone in the UK. These are must-attend seminars, and visitors are advised to arrive early to secure their seats. Any questions will be answered after their seminars for a limited amount of time.

Further seminars are lined up from industry pioneers, including a host of eye-opening seminars on the circular economy, energy & water efficiency, renewables & emissions, and IoT.

200 Pioneering Exhibitors

With an extensive 200 exhibitors showcasing their finest solution led products and services, there truly is something for everyone.

With the continued progression towards a reliance on electric vehicles, Future Resource is proud to be one of the only environmental exhibitions to boast a Test Track for the zero-emissions vehicles on display at the show. This track will be an incredible opportunity to not only witness and understand how good these vehicles are on the road, but to experience them first hand. This will be a unique feature that is not only a great bit of fun at the show but also a fantastic insight into how far electric vehicles have come. The test track will be ready to put to sleep any issues or qualms with this new age of vehicle technology.

The Future Resource Green Apple Award is returning this year, to once again recognise a cutting-edge supplier from the renewables and sustainability sector. The Green Organisation sponsor the award and select a judging panel made up of some of the most respected voices in the sector. The award is open to all exhibitors, and all applicants will be put forward for the International Green Apple Awards for Environmental Best Practice Award, which is held in the Houses of Parliament in in November.
