Envirolink North West Energy Forum Annual Conference 2010 - Energy Solutions for Challenging Times
The North West Energy Forum has been established for over 60 years,delivering regional energy briefings and networking opportunities for North West energy professionals. Following on from the success of the last year’s annual conference, the NWEF, in partnership with Envirolink Northwest, is once again hosting a regional exhibition and conference to showcase North West energy solutions.
This year’s conference will consider the UK energy landscape in light of the Comprehensive Spending Review and will feature speakers from leading energy projects being delivered here in the North West.
An exhibition of regional suppliers of both energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies will run alongside the seminar programme, providing an ideal opportunity for professionals interested in improving their energy performance to meet with regional suppliers of innovative energy saving and low carbon technologies.
Admission to the event is free for all.
