Confidence in Energy Market Sees Big Players Invest in Ecobuild 2015

LONDON, August 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Baxi Commercial, CORGI Services, EnviroVent, Fernox, Honeywell Control Systems, Innasol, Viessmann, WILO (UK) and Xylem Lowara UK are the latest big players to join over 125 energy brands already signed up to Ecobuild 2015 (http://www.ecobuild.co.uk) - the premier energy event in the UK.

Taking place from 3rd to 5th March at London's ExCeL and supported by leading trade bodies NICEIC, HETAS, BPVA and MCS, Ecobuild now serves the UK's largest community of energy professionals who attend to learn about and purchase all aspects of renewable energy, energy efficiency and management.

Attracting over 18,000* heating, plumbing and renewables buyers, Ecobuild almost doubled its installer audience at the 2014 event. Senior energy professionals attended to procure the latest innovations in biogas/anaerobic digestion, biomass, CHP, geothermal, energy from waste, heat pumps, solar thermal, solar PV and wind.

Returning to Ecobuild for the eighth consecutive year is Baxi Commercial. Sean Green, Senior Product Manager at Baxi Commercial said: "With the Energy Related Product (ErP) Directive due in September 2015, there is a lot of change ahead for the commercial and residential heating and hot water industry. Baxi Commercial is championing the industry to come together to provide support and information to make the transition as easy as possible for installers, contractors, specifiers and merchants. Ecobuild provides the perfect platform for us to reach out to key stakeholders and help educate them about the changes.  It is also a great place to get valuable feedback and industry insight. We are very much looking forward to Ecobuild 2015."

Spring 2015 is a critical time for installers who will be getting up to speed on the latest training and technologies to make commercial and domestic premises more energy efficient ahead of the winter.

Whilst a surge in early applications demonstrates an unprecedented hunger for renewables in the domestic market, early closure of the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund (GDHIF) has come as a blow to the industry. Combine this with soaring energy prices and falling Feed-In Tariffs, installers and the energy community will flock to Ecobuild to seek guidance and practical advice on policy and legislation and how to leverage live government incentives such as the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).

Alison Jackson, Group Director of Sustainability & Construction, Ecobuild said: "Ecobuild is the marketplace for energy where companies large and small forge new commercial partnerships, business ventures and nurture existing client relationships. With double the number of installers and energy professionals attending in 2014 on the previous year, Ecobuild 2015 is the platform to grow your business!"

"Over the past ten years Ecobuild has cemented its position as the sustainable design and construction marketplace for new build, refurb, commercial and domestic buildings. Evolving to meet industry demand from the energy market will now see Ecobuild 2015 split into two main show zones; Sustainable Design & Construction and Energy," said Jackson. "This will make the show easier to navigate for visitors and enable exhibitors to focus on senior buyers coming specifically to this area of the event", she added.

Ecobuild 2015 takes place at London's ExCeL from 3rd to 5th March 2015. If you're interested in exhibiting at Ecobuild's Energy Zone, please contact Martin Hurn, Sales Director on t: +44(0)20-7560-4072 or email [email protected].

Notes to Editor: 

*In 2014, 18,189 visitors attended Ecobuild to source renewable energy and energy management products and solutions.

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists discussed...

With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nevi Kaja, a Research Engineer at Ford Motor Company, discussed some of the security challenges of the IoT infrastructure and related how these aspects impact Smart Living. The material was delivered interac...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Doug Vanderweide, an instructor at Linux Academy, discussed why major players like AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix, and Google Cloud Platform are all trying to sidestep VMs and containers wit...
While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming. Startups are a threat to incumbents like never before, and a major enabler for startups is that they are instantly “cloud ready.” If innovation moves at the pace of IT, then your company is in trouble. Why? Because your data center will not keep up with frenetic pace AWS, Microsoft and Google are rolling out new capabilities. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Don Browning, VP of Cloud Architecture at Turner, posited that disruption is inevitable for comp...
