Meet the Eco Technology experts

The third Eco Technology Show returns to the Brighton Centre on 26-27 June with over 140 exhibitors and a powerful speaker line up that offers practical information on how to install and use energy saving technology; ideal for those involved in architecture and other specifiers

An extensive seminar programme of over 60 keynotes and talks kicks off with a keynote speech from Greg Barker MP, Minister of State for Energy and Climate Change, who will reaffirm the government’s commitment to reaping the economic benefits of shifting to a lower carbon economy; a subject at the heart of the show’s agenda. On a practical level, members of his team at DECC will explain how the domestic RHI is going to roll out.

The completely free seminar programme sessions will cover legislation, funding and incentives and the major discussion points on energy management, build, water and waste, transport, technology and resource efficiency.

Other highlights of the conference programme for architects and other specifiers include:

  • A review of the government’s Green Deal scheme by the Energy Saving Trust will help contractors get the most out of this unique incentive.
  • Eco celebrity Oliver Heath will present the benefits of eco refurbishment and energy assessment.
  • An update on the government consultation to achieve zero carbon building standards by Martin Russell-Croucher, director of sustainability and special projects, Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).
  • Cut through government red tape for new build and refurbishment projects with the South East Centre for the Built Environment (SECBE).
  • A big debate on future technologies and material innovations in the building industry chaired by Julie Hill, Circular Economy Task Force, Green Alliance.
  • Understand how to reap the monetary benefits of energy efficiency for new builds and retrofits from Sean Twohig, Group Environmental, H&S, risk manager, Jury’s Inn.
  • A presentation on hybrid heating systems and how they can slash customers’ running costs by 20 per cent by Keith Rule, sales director at Fond Nova UK.
  • • Tom Lipinski, technical director at Ventive, sharing his firm’s vision of the future of ventilation.

The show’s exhibitors will demonstrate how optimum building and running cost savings result from a holistic view of a project, through investment in the right technology and low-carbon solutions for buildings, smart choices of building materials and even through to furniture design.

As well as showcasing energy technology, many exhibitors will also showcase cutting-edge design technology.

The Eco Technology Show will be open from 9.30am – 5pm on Thursday 26 June and 9.30am – 4.30pm on Friday 27 June.

Registration is free.
