Alice Doyle06.2015 Business, Community, Education, Events, The C-side Challenge

So today we are off to the Eco Technology Show at the Amex. Have you registered yet?

Some of the things we want to see are the ‘FUTURE OF ENERGY EFFICIENCY’ PANEL, which will be led by Caroline Lucas where experts will look at the direction that energy efficiency is heading in and its importance throughout the duration of the next government.

A top person we want to catch up with, is Robert Llewellyn, aka Kryten (not least to say we cant WAIT to see Red Dwarf series XI), but also to hear his talk on electric vehicles and opportunities for linking EVs, community car clubs & on-site renewable. Sounds good to us.

There is stacks on to see, three dedicated seminar areas, which will be hosting over 70 talks so we are clearing our diaries till the weekend. And who arranged this eco extravaganza? We grabbed a minute with Damian Tow, the ETS Partnership Director to ask him what he does and why?

What first inspired you to work in the environment sector?

Growing up in the countryside, a love of nature & the outdoors and finally reading a book called the ‘Weathermakers’ in 2007 that helped me decide to leave my corporate career and do a masters in sustainable development at Forum for the Future

Why the Eco Tech Show?

Well we are in our 4th year and have grown from an idea by 4 friends to educate and inspire business & communities to adopt sustainable solutions, to an event which attracts 3000 visitors and has over 70 leading speakers & 120 exhibitors on a range of sustainability topics.

If you had to be a green technology what one would you?

It would have to be a solar panel as we have installed over 2200 of community owned solar panels through my other project, www.brightonenergy.org.uk.

Thanks Damian and see you at the show.
