ALL-ENERGY kicks off on May 21. While the renewables community has certainly taken note and the show has, as a result, expanded into two halls, it is not so sure that the oil & gas community is paying as much attention as it should.
Bearing in mind that, like Offshore Europe, registration is free, there really is no excuse not to attend, even if one is only idly curious about what has become a compelling, diverse multibillion-pound/dollar industry that isn’t going away any time soon. And, by the way, the sector is now competing in the jobs market, so maybe it is useful to benchmark salaries on offer in the All-Energy Jobs Zone.
The two-day show has pavilions from Austria, Canada, Denmark, Flanders, New Zealand and Norway; and Aberdeen, Caithness, the east of England, Fife, Highlands and Islands and Orkney all have large group areas. Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group is physically and spiritually at the heart of the show.
Another large area has been taken by the Scottish Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association (SHFCA) under the “H208” banner, which will launch “HyFuture – Scotland’s Hydrogen Futures Study” at the All-Energy conference.
A host of overseas delegates from some 26 countries are also flying in, including inward missions from China and Japan.
