IBE, organizers of the Sustainable Energy and Energy Efficiency Expo’s has confirmed that the Renewable Power Association (RPA) has endorsed the Sustainable Energy Expo by agreeing to a joint venture.LONDON, England – April 11, 2002 [SolarAccess.com] The RPA will organize and host a major two-day conference entitled “Renewable Power Delivery at the Sustainable Energy Expo” which should attract speakers and visitors from all segments of the industry. This conference follows on from the earlier RPA events that have established the trade association as a leading voice advocating Renewable Energy and attracting all sectors of the community in vigorous and productive debate. “We are delighted to be collaborating with IBE in this joint venture, which brings together aspects of Renewable Power Generation, Energy Efficiency and sustainable technology,” said David Byers, Chief Executive of the RPA. “These components form the spine of policy, which addresses the challenge of climate change and the reform of industrial energy practices for the 21st Century. The conference is planned to avoid the habitual fare of tedious presentations of the obvious, concentrating upon the actual challenges of delivering Renewable Power targets by 2010 and beyond.” Other co-sponsors and supporters of both the Sustainable Energy and Energy Efficiency Expo’s include the Institute of Energy, the Carbon Trust, the Energy Savings Trust, Combined Heat and Power Association, the Major Energy Users Council, the Association for Environment-Conscious Building, the Council for Energy Efficiency Development, the Solar Trade Association, the Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers, the Association of Electricity Producers and the Association for the Conservation of Energy. The events take place October 22 to 24 at Olympia 2 in London. By combining both exhibitions together they are intended to function as a “one-stop shop” for those in the private and public sectors that are looking for methods to minimise energy costs and reduce carbon emissions.
