Part of the futurebuild districts...
The largest gathering of manufacturers of district energy equipment ever seen in the UK will feature in this dedicated area.
Hosted by the ukDEA and in association with Danish and Swedish Embassies, this district will include a packed programme of key speakers and debates, a networking lounge, a new product launch pad showcase demonstrating the latest technology available and the launch of a local authority knowledge workshop to help with district energy projects.
The next energy revolution...
ecobuild has long led the way in championing District Energy in the UK. In 2016, ecobuild launched the District Energy pavilion in partnership with the ukDEA, and was joined by the Swedish and Danish embassies at a much expanded 1,500m2 feature area in 2017. More than 3,000 of the total 25,000 visitors to ecobuild 2017 came specifically to learn about the latest District Energy solutions in 2017, with 400 people attending the District Energy theatre.
2018 will see ecobuild once again take District Energy to the next level, alongside its long-standing partner the ukDEA. At over 2,500m2 and featuring 50+ exhibitors, the District Energy area of ecobuild 2018 will represent the largest gathering of manufacturers of district energy equipment ever seen in the UK.
The dedicated area will have its own theatre, content series and networking programme. It will feature industry-leading speakers at the forefront of this exciting field, sharing ideas and insights on how to implement district energy solutions and improve energy efficiency, reliability and sustainability in local communities.
Some of the key highlights include:
- a three-day seminar programme covering everything from business models and funding to key technical delivery and design considerations.
- a new, exclusive Local Authority workshop hosted by BEIS – two Local Authorities per day will host informal sessions to discuss existing projects and advise on the funding opportunities available for new projects
- a Product Showcase area for innovative exhibitors to showcase their latest District Energy products and technology to buyers attending the event
Confirmed exhibitors include:
“As first time exhibitors at Ecobuild 2017, we were unsure of what to expect. However, we had a fantastic show – I lost my voice after the first day as we were so busy! Having such a positive experience, we have already rebooked for 2018, doubling the size of our stand.”
