The UK’s Largest Exhibition and Conference Tackling Decentralised and Distributed Energy Solutions is Back

The Distributed Energy Show, taking place on 13th and 14th of March 2024 at the Telford International Centre, is the UK’s only free-to-attend exhibition and conference bringing together the entire supply chain on diversified and distributed energy resources. 

Innovative technological advances within the energy industry are allowing for a mass migration towards decentralised energy, enabling companies to move towards more flexible, sustainable, reliable, and efficient practices. With onsite and co-generation techniques, renewables, and energy storage on the rise, new approaches are paving the way to a brighter and more sustainable future for consumers and network operators alike.

The Distributed Energy Show features the UK’s widest array of technologies for onsite and localised heat and power generation alongside the infrastructure, software, and components necessary to connect to the network and implement a low-cost, low-carbon strategy.

In a post Covid economy, technologies consistent with long term climate and energy sustainability, including flexible power grids, energy storage, and renewable generation, have seen a noticeably larger uptake across the board, with the International Energy Agency (IEA) claiming that the use of renewables in the energy sector has seen an increase to 83%1 of all new energy generating capacity. As part of this green recovery, many have begun to phase out the use of coal and carbon-based technologies to generate and store energy, with the IEA predicting that ‘renewables are set to dominate [in a] global capacity’2, with a predicted 75-80% of new energy to be led by solar PV and wind by 2050.3

Those attending The Distributed Energy Show for free can expect to see a comprehensive array of the latest emerging technologies and systems that will enable the generation, storage, management, and distribution of power and heat. With a key focus on renewable and sustainable sources, technologies on display are set to include solar systems, gas and wind turbines, smart energy systems and platforms, flexible energy solutions, power plant systems, fuel cells, and many more instrumental innovations within the sector. In addition to the attendance of energy end-users, visitors include energy suppliers, network operators, and transmission and distribution companies sourcing technologies and expertise to increase their own efficiencies and sustainability.

Caroline Bragg, Head of Policy at The Association for Decentralised Energy: ‘This pivotal event for the distributed energy sector, including a large-scale exhibition and industry-leading conference, will bring the whole supply chain together to showcase the technologies and systems to enable organisations to generate, store, manage, and distribute their own power and heat.’

Our free to attend, two track, panel-based conference programme aims to further your knowledge of decentralised energy, as well as highlighting the innovations emerging from this growing industry.

Keynote conference sessions will delve into crucial and ever-present matters that will define the targets and steps needed to push towards a more sustainable and reliable energy economy. From smart grids to hydrogen, heat pumps to Net Zero targets, EV charging to local energy systems, the free conference sessions will explore a huge array of technologies, techniques, and systems to improve your energy management, efficiency, and storage.

We are delighted to welcome a wealth of leading expert speakers from across the industry to sit alongside thought-leaders, energy users, research institutions, and government organisations, who will be sharing their insights into their pioneering innovations and ideas. Our conference panel will discuss topics including Regulation, Industrial Decarbonisation, Energy Flexibility, Heat Pumps, Hydrogen & Fuel Cells, Energy Innovations, Net Zero Targets, CHP, Heat Networks, Energy Price Volatility, EV Charging/V2G Infrastructure, and Local Energy Systems.

As well as receiving a record number of visitors through the door, the show welcomes industry-leading companies to exhibit, showcasing their last products and developments. We are delighted to be joined by organisations including Bosch, Clarke Energy, Conrad Energy, National Gas Metering, Piclo, Powell UK Ltd, Vattenfall UK, and Wilson Power Solutions Limited.

Following their successful event in 2023, Powerstar, who will be exhibiting at the 2024 show says:

“The importance being placed on decarbonisation by businesses, governments and the general public alike is driving huge amounts of innovation within the sector, and an event like this is a valuable opportunity to better keep pace with new potential partners and new technologies that synergise well with our own.”

Thousands will attend the show for two days of networking, lead generation and education at the Telford International Centre. Matt Pennington, Event Director at Event Partners, the host of the event, says:

“We are absolutely delighted with the industry-wide support we have for The Distributed Energy Show, which is coming back in 2024 bigger than ever. Major global organisations, SME’s and thought-leaders are helping to shape the event, resulting in the exhibition doubling in size and an increased number of visitors attending the event.”

The Distributed Energy show looks forward to welcoming all attendees, exhibitors, speakers, and VIP guests through the doors on 13th and 14th March 2024 for what is set to be a record-breaking show.
