Fellows Environmental attended a number of events last week as part of the company’s on-going effort to keep up to date with industry developments and forge ties with other companies in the local area.
On Wednesday, the On-Farm Energy Generation Conference 2012 was held at Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire which gave an opportunity to meet with renewable energy technology providers and get a close feel for the interest in non-traditional farmland resource use, which the agricultural industry is always developing. The event included talks on government incentives, how to plan for on-farm energy generation, financing such a project and a whole range of other topics across the two days.
Thursday evening saw FE take a short trip to the Chancellors Hotel and Conference Centre in Fallowfield where the Institute of Engineering and Technology had organised a talk focussing on the installation of a CHP power plant at Media City in Salford. The presentation was given by a member of The Peel Group, developers of the site which has become the new home for BBC, ITV and Salford University, and covered topics ranging from the electrical engineering of the site, the benefits and uses of the site’s tri-gen energy centre and potential future developments which may be incorporated into the energy system.
Fellows Environmental also attended the Greater Manchester Business Fair at Salford City stadium and an event put on by Peninsula for Small Businesses at Trafford Park.
