Next month's The Energy Event (NEC, September 16-17) will see the launch of its 'Professional Services', a new venture dedicated to helping businesses better understand and manage utilities. This feature will offer three specific areas — the Legal Hub operated by Zyda Law, the Expert Hub coordinated by Opus Energy and the Business Stream Drop-In Zone.
Sarah Porter, division director for environment events at i2i, including The Energy Event, said: “Professional Services is an exciting addition to the show and offers visitors a premium service of invaluable and free expertise. Whether it’s legal advice on new infrastructure projects, advice on energy procurement or securing PPA agreements for renewable energy generation or tips to conserve energy in large organisations, these bookable drop-in sessions will be of huge value to our visitors.”
The Legal Hub — Zyda Law specialists will be available to offer business owners practical advice in planning and environmental law for major infrastructure projects. A specialist in planning and environmental law, Zyda Law has a 100 per cent success track record in gaining consent for UK infrastructure projects, enabling £4 billion of development.
The Expert Hub — Opus Energy is a supplier of gas and electricity to commercial businesses and will be on site offering free advice on energy procurement and renewable generation in the expert hub. The company has received numerous awards, including the ‘Independent Energy Supplier of the Year’ award in 2010. In 2011, 2012 and 2013, Opus Energy earned a place in The Sunday Times HSBC Top Track 250 league.
Business Stream Drop-In Zone — Scottish water company Business Stream will be offering free advice on making the most of water. Many have already seen huge benefits – not least in bottom-line savings. To book an appointment at any of these three areas, visit www.theenergyevent.com/professionalservices.
Three additional i2i environmental shows — The Renewables Event, The Water Event and RWM — are also co-located with The Energy Event in association with CIWM. This co-location offers visitors the opportunity to build their knowledge, source products and services, and network across the sectors of resource and waste management, energy and water management, procurement and efficiency and onsite renewable energy generation.
