Conference Introduction

All-Energy 2016 Conference

  • The All-Energy conference is designed to inspire and stimulate, taking a positive and forward thinking approach to where and how the renewable and sustainable energy sectors will develop and grow.

    Innovation, cost reduction, more efficient operations and aids to ever safer and sustainable energy, as well as developments in smart sustainable cities and energy efficiency, featured high on the 2016 agenda.  Attendees heard successful case histories, and lessons learned, behavioural change, adding value not cost, diversification, export opportunities and realism. Outcomes from the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference, COP21, in Paris; and plans for the Fifth Carbon Budget, also inspired our presenters.

    Year-on-year All-Energy provides an unparalleled opportunity to gain insight across all areas of the renewable and sustainable energy industry, and equally important areas like energy efficiency. Our multi-stream conference programmes cover all renewable energy sectors;  the opportunities and challenges facing the industry, the associated issues such as grid, funding and increasingly important areas such as business energy efficiency; and topics such as smart sustainable cities and local energy economies.

  • Visitor Communities at All-Energy

    Renewable and sustainable energy generation lies at the heart of All-Energy as ever. So too do energy efficiency, and the needs of future and sustainable cities. Our diagram helps you to see the topics that we are eager to embrace and the visitors we plan to attract to All-Energy 2016.

  • Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

    Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is important for development of the individual and their organisation; and our research shows that it is worth checking with your professional body if attending All-Energy counts as CPD.

  • We enjoyed the range and mix of exhibitors and the opportunities it gave us to network. The attendees came from a wide range of sectors and the stand was always busy. This was a good event and had a very upbeat atmosphere.

    • Cameron TCMS Ltd
  • An excellent mix of exhibitors and attendees meant that we were able to promote our brand to a good cross section of the industry participants and network effectively.

    • DWF LLP
  • Good quality venue, easy to get to and attendees weren't so worried about getting travel connections. All round a better venue and this reflected in the mood of exhibitors and attendees alike.

    • Highlands and Islands Enterprise

  • As well as being a thoroughly enjoyable event to attend, my colleagues and I were able to make some very good connections through the various networking events held both by fellow exhibitors and the organisers.

    • Mona Lifting Ltd
  • Good quality event, well organised and attended by almost everyone active in the sector.

    • Shepherd and Wedderburn LLP
  • High quality accessible event, with a good mix of renewable activity covered, and it is free. Good networking event.

    • Bilfinger
  • I got two commercial contracts from my first visit.
    I also got very good feedback from other potential clients which I think was due to the focused client/consultant collaboration environment that the All-Energy Exhibition creates. People were receptive to my approaches because that was what the event was about.

  • I am relatively new to the industry and the All-Energy event provides an opportunity to interact with those that have more experience in the industry and learn from discussion/ presentation groups.

    • Muirhall Energy
  • Good quality event, well organised and attended by almost everyone active in the sector.

    • Shepherd and Wedderburn LLP

    • South Ayrshire Council
  • As focus on sustainable renewable energy gains momentum, there could be opportunities for my organisation.

    • Parker Hannifin Ltd.
  • The All-Energy show enabled businesses of all types and sizes to engage and display their products. I was able to contact many new clients, central-based and south of Glasgow, opening up my product range to a new audience.
