This week, Clean Solar Solutions Ltd attended the Renewables Event 2013 at Birmingham NEC.The Renewables Event is the only event in the UK focused solely on onsite energy generation for business energy and end users such as major corporations, manufacturers, retailers and the public sector. The event covered all aspects of renewable energy, but of course, our focus was upon solar PV.
Whilst at the show, it was good for us to renew acquaintances with current clients such as British Gas Solar, who were exhibiting at the show and meet in person potential clients we have only spoken to over the phone, such as Lark Energy. Other exhibitors at the show who were able to speak with about our solar panel cleaning service were Solarcentury, Juwi and a number of other solar panel installers.
We were also able to create interest in our solar panel cleaning service from installers such as Dulas, who do not currently offer a solar panel cleaning service for their clients.
There were various seminars throughout the day. Those of most interest to us were "The UK Renewable Energy Roadmap update". This explained how well we are doing in meeting the Governments green energy targets for 2020. Solar PV is well on its way to hitting the 20GW installation target.
Another seminar that was of particular interest was "Reflecting On The Performance Of On-site Solar Strategies." This was a panel discussion and featured solar PV owners from three differing sectors, Truro School, Bradford NHS Teaching College and a representative from Wrexham Council. Each explained how the investment in their solar array had reduced greatly their annual spend on electricity.
When the discussion was opened up to questions, Steve Willliams, M.D. Of Clean Solar Solutions Ltd was able to ask each PV owner about their current arrangements for solar panel cleaning. It was surprising to to hear that no one had in place a system for solar panel cleaning and it had not even crossed their minds that their panels would need cleaning. They had all recognised that their systems were not performing as well as they did when first installed, but no one had had their panels cleaned. We have since been in discussions with Wrexham Council to see if we can provide their solar panel cleaning in the long term.
Clean Solar Solutions Ltd have found the Renewables Event at the NEC to be very interesting and most productive. We will be back at the NEC again in October for the Solar Power UK event. We hope to meet some of you there!
