The History of All-Energy

Since it’s launch in 2001, All-Energy has grown from nearly 50 exhibitors and 350 visitors to 250+ exhibitors and a total attendance of 7,871 in 2019.

2001 - 2003 - Creating an All-Energy Future

The launch of All-Energy was held at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre in February 2001 with nearly 50 exhibiting companies, 350 visitors and a 2-day paid for conference. The 2002 show saw total attendance of 800, and that was the upward trend that continued for many years.

2004 - 2007 - Record breaking growth

In 2004 the conference changed to a free of charge event which in turn saw All-Energy with visitor numbers soaring to 4,000 by 2007 in what proved to be the busiest and biggest event in its 7-year history.

2008 - 2011 - Parliamentary address

2008 - 2011 saw the UK and Scottish governments once again backing the event with Rt Hon Ed Miliband MP and Jim Mather MSP both featuring in the conference opening plenary session. Politicians continue to be actively involved up to and including present time.

2012 - 2015 - Move to new venue

The show continued to be held in Aberdeen but moved in 2015 to the SECC (now the SEC) in Glasgow, this resulted in attendee numbers increasing by 20% and exhibitor satisfaction going up by 28% since the previous show.

2016 - 2020

All-Energy continues to be held in Glasgow with strong support from key stakeholders. In 2017 Smart Urban Mobility Solutions (SUMS) was added to the show’s offerings, and in 2019 Dcarbonise, sponsored by the Scottish Government, Energy Saving Trust and Zero Waste Scotland, was co-located with All-Energy. The new event concentrates on energy efficiency, low carbon heat and low carbon transport (so now includes SUMS) the three vital pillars if net-zero carbon is to be achieved by 2050 (and 2045 for Scotland).
