NFU members welcome at Energy and Rural Business Show

Established in 2010, the Energy and Rural Business Show taking place 6-7 February at the Telford International Centre in Shropshire is the latest evolution of this renewable energy event aimed specifically at the agricultural and rural sectors.

Showcasing the latest opportunities for farm businesses and estate owners looking to maximise profitable and sustainable land use, the Energy Now Expo has been joined this year by the Rural Business Expo and the Low-Emission Vehicles Expo.

NFU Deputy President Guy Smith will open the conference on day one and chair the keynote session, while Dr Jonathan Scurlock, NFU chief adviser on renewable energy and climate change, will be presenting on both days. 

Dr Scurlock said:

“As the voice of British farming, the NFU is pleased to welcome the union of Energy Now Expo with the Low Emission Vehicles Expo and Rural Business Expo. It is critically important that NFU members can remain profitable and resilient through the transition to a post-Brexit economy by embracing these new business opportunities.”

Energy and Rural Business Show director, David Jacobmeyer, said:

"The show will provide farmers and estate owners with expert advice about how to set up initiatives which make long-term business sense.”

Energy Now Expo will feature an exhibition, a dedicated energy storage theatre, a one-to-one advice clinic, and conference streams devoted to each type of renewable energy. Matthew Swain, Senior Engineer at the NFU Energy Service, will be taking part in the Biomass Seminar on Thursday 07 February, where he will be presenting on how to understand your ongoing RHI obligations.

Our team are representing the NFU Energy Service on exhibition stand number 73 and will be on hand to discuss your needs throughout the two days.

NFU members can attend the event for free and have access to the exclusive VIP area by registering here.
