The hot topics at Energy and Rural Business Show 2020

Last week we exhibited at the Energy and Rural Business Show, held at the East of England Show Ground in Peterborough. We had two great days meeting new and existing customers And, as usual, we had a lot of queries about solar panels and electricity contracts. However, this year there was more focus around heat pumps and biomethane as well.

With our team growing quickly, we had quite a few members of staff experience being on the stand for the first time during the event. Here are their thoughts from the two-day event:

“I found it really beneficial to meet our customers face to face and be able to talk through their queries and offer resolutions in person, especially to hear their questions. I learnt a lot and feel that working alongside our engineering and marketing team meant that I picked up a lot of knowledge in topics such as solar, heat pumps, battery storage and biomass as well as understand the farming industry better. Furthermore, spending time on the stand reminded me of the bigger picture and I came away with a few innovative ideas could help us provide an even better service for our customers.” Josh Robinson (Energy Consultant)

“I joined the team on the second day of the show and gave a presentation to around 50 people, on effective on farm energy efficiency measures. It was a great opportunity to meet customers from across the agriculture and horticultural sectors, as well as to get a better understanding of the latest developments in technology and innovation. It was very encouraging to see the show was well attended, proving that ‘energy’ remains a key talking point for many, as we strive to reduce our consumption and associated carbon footprint.” James Wayman (Project Engineer)

“The show provided a great opportunity to meet up with new and existing customers and contacts in the industry to discuss their future and ongoing energy projects. Quite a few exiting new opportunities were discussed on our stand, with hot topics including bio-methane injection, Road Transport Fuel Obligation and, of course, Ground Source Heat Pumps. Other main talking points included energy storage and whether batteries are finally here and viable, as well as carbon foot-printing and greenhouse gas emission calculations, following on from discussions at NFU Conference and increasing public interest in climate change.”  Ed Shuldham (Project Engineer)
