With over 20 exhibitors from all parts of the renewable energy sector, information stands, exhibits, talks and presentations throughout the day, this is an event that should be able to answer any question and fuel any interest.
Here in Argyll, we have abundant renewable resources, representing a secure and sustainable energy supply for the future.
Anyone thinking of the possibility of installing a renewable energy technology in thier home, community, or business, shold find this event the opportunity to see the technology, chat to a variety of installers. find solutions and get advice.
Whether you are interested in generating electricity (for example, by solar photovoltaics, wind energy, or hydro) or in heating (for example by woodfuel, heat pumps, or solar hot water), this is the place to be.
