NEW for 2019

  • Show Floor Seminar Theatres

    Eight All-Energy and Dcarbonise topics have their own Show Floor Seminar Theatres this year, some for just one day, some for two. Each will engender a sense of topicality and vitality to an already busy exhibition. Some old favourites return, and new ones have been created.

    • Offshore Wind is the features on Day 1; to be replaced on Day 2 by Wave and Tidal with its ever popular EMEC quick fire update lunch-time session
    • The always packed Community and Local Energy theatre returns on Day 1; on Day 2 its the ‘Innovation Theatre’ hosting three highly topical sessions from UK Research and Innovation
    • The Energy Storage and Hydrogen Hub theatre operates on both days
    • So too do two Dcarbonise theatres – Energy Efficiency in the Built Environment; and Low Carbon Heat
    • The Research Hub focuses on eight university programmes featuring PhD researchers working with SMEs on creating new products and services


  • Corporate PPAs

    Corporate PPAs – what are they? How about the economic ones? How do they benefit smaller companies as well as corporates? What are the environmental benefits? And what is their overall effect on the renewables industry?

    In a scene setting presentation Daniela Fitzpatrick, Origination & Offtake Manager, ScottishPower Renewables, will aim to answer some of these questions and then three other experts will provide their slant looking in more depth at a particular area.

    • James Hunt, UK Originator at Vattenfall Energy Trading Netherlands NV
    • Ian Hunter, Commercial Director UK and Ireland, RES
    • Andrew Peyman, Origination Manager, EDF Energy
    Then, under the chairmanship of Liz McRobb, Partner, Shepherd and Wedderburn, let the discussion begin!


  • LCITP, the transition to a low carbon economy

    - projects, progress and next steps

    The Low Carbon Infrastructure Transition Programme (LCITP) conference session showcases the low carbon infrastructure projects delivered through the programme. Hear directly from the projects themselves about the successes, challenges and lessons learned from the delivery of these transformational projects.

    Designed to create the conditions to attract commercial investment in innovative low-carbon infrastructure projects, which could be replicated elsewhere in Scotland LCITP was launched in March 2015, in partnership with Scottish Enterprise, Highlands and Islands Enterprise, Scottish Futures Trust and sector specialists.

    It is a Strategic Intervention supported by the European Structural and Investment Funds, and European match funding for the LCITP is guaranteed up until Autumn 2021. It is overseen by the Low Carbon Infrastructure Transition Programme Board. The LCITP aims to support Scotland's transition to a low-carbon economy.


  • Two utilities holding sessions under the "Grid" conference stream

    An All-Energy without grid sessions would be like fish without chips! This year two utilities have taken on organisation of two of the three dedicated grid sessions.

    Scottish & Southern Electricity Networks’ Distribution System Operator: Opportunities for DER at all scales featuring Ofgem; a look at Open Networks workstreams, and specific implications for DER; an insight into the first community energy scheme to trade electricity in National Grid’s ‘The Balancing Mechanism’ and a facilitated discussion involving representatives of some of the major DSO trials in the UK and Ireland.

    ‘Do we need a transmission network anyway?’ is the title of the SP Energy Networks session. Looking at potential future trends and network requirements, outlining how these relate to current network investment allocations and prioritisation within the context of the RIIO 2 Business Plan Framework.

    Sandwiched between the two is 90-minutes looking at ‘The changing face of electricity network service mechanisms’. Check out too the fascinating transition-related sessions on ‘Energy systems and ‘The Net-Zero Challenge’!


  • Dcarbonise

    Yes, Dcarbonise is new and shiny bright. Sponsored by the Scottish Government, Energy Saving Trust and Zero Waste Scotland , it gathers together energy; low carbon heat; and low carbon transport, providing them with their own showcase and conference streams.

    What can you expect to see, hear and benefit from?

    • Conference sessions on energy efficiency in the built environment, low carbon heat, low carbon transport (under the Smart Urban Mobility Solutions banner); decarbonising industry – including carbon capture and storage; smart and sustainable cities; and The net-zero challenge
    • Show floor seminar theatres devoted to low carbon heat; and energy efficiency with many presentations aimed at landlords needing to ensure their properties reach EPC rating E by 1 April 2020
    • 1-2-1 advice from experts
    • Free to attend workshops
    • And relevant exhibitors


  • Smart Urban Mobility Solutions

    - a new slant

    This year’s Smart Urban Mobility Solutions (SUMS), firmly under the Dcarbonise banner thanks to its ULEV content, opens with a keynote address by Scotland’s Cabinet Secretary for Transport, Infrastructure and Connectivity, Michael Matheson MSP.

    Throughout it considers environmental impact thanks to the guiding hand of Professor Margaret Bell CBE, Science City Professor of Transport and the Environment at Newcastle University and a member of the Smart Environment Forum of the ITS (United Kingdom). Her influence can be seen throughout the technical programme with four topical and highly relevant sessions:
    • Future sustainable mobility systems to address environmental issues
    • Environmental challenges in Port Cities
    • V 2G and LCV charging infrastructure
    • ULEV uptake – buses, cars and fleets + MaaS
    Never tried an EV? You can in the SUMS ‘Arrive and Drive’ area!


  • New Marine Renewables session

    Marine renewable energy has always played an important role at All-Energy – this year is no exception with a packed full-day conference on Day 1:
    • Collaboration: The Way Forward when the Marine Energy Council’s recent report comes under the conference spotlight
    • Managed global collaboration
    • Moving tidal and wave forward
    Followed on Day Two by an equally busy day in the Wave and Tidal Seminar Theatre on the exhibition show floor, once again featuring the DYNAMIC European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) quick fire update from 12:30 until 14:00 – never one to miss.

    What’s new then?
    On the afternoon of 14 May there will be the Application of the IEC Standards: Real world experience from the OPERA & MET-CERTIFIED Projects workshop.


  • UKRI/ Innovate UK and All-Energy

    -a valuable relationship

    All-Energy has long had a close relationship with Innovate UK. This year they, and UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), are bringing even more to the show.
    • Day 1 sees the now traditional Investor Showcase event hosted by Innovate UK including a networking lunch for attendees; and followed by KTN talking about their Innovation Exchange programme; and the intriguing ‘Telling Your Story’ session aimed at securing investment and media interest for your innovation
    • UKRI Day 1 conference sessions include ‘Preparing for the Electric revolution: technology, economics and energy; and ‘Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund: Transforming Construction
    • The UKRI Day 2 begins with an Investor Breakfast; and then three 90-minute sessions on How robotics will be used in changing energy landscape, Smart Local Energy Systems, and How to create net-zero industrial clusters in the UK by 2040
    And, of course, you can meet them on their stand in the exhibition.


  • ERA-Net Smart Energy Systems

    ERA-Net SES is a joint programming platform of managers from 30 national and regional public funding programmes in the field of Research, Development and Innovation (RDI) from 23 countries. It initiates and awards Research, Development and Demonstration (RDD) projects in thematic areas like smart power grids, regional and local energy systems, heating and cooling networks, digital services etc.

    All-Energy will see representatives from the 30 funding agencies visiting Glasgow for their biannual meetings. They invite visitors to join for a session to meet their projects and funding partners. Participants can learn how ERA-Net SES is contributing with its global network to activities eventually supporting the development of “an optimised European power grid” and “Integrated Local and Regional Energy Systems”. ERA-Net SES’s path towards multilateral innovation and collaboration with its recent global activities with Mission Innovation will be presented. Moreover, the successfully selected projects from their recent Integrated Renewable Power Systems call will be presented – and future funding opportunities and topics will be announced.
