PWE takes a look at this year’s Sustainabilitylive exhibition – the UK event for the environment, water, land, energy and sustainable business sectors. 

Sustainabilitylive is returning to the NEC in Birmingham from 24th to 26th May 2011. In the past it has been a must-attend event for individuals and companies seeking to gain the tools and knowledge needed to compete in an economy increasingly driven by sustainability.

Attracting more than 400 exhibitors, Sustainabilitylive is made up of five shows (including: International Water and Effluent Exhibition (IWEX); Environmental Technology Exhibition (ET); National Energy Management Exhibition (NEMEX) )

The busy seminar programme at this year’s IWEX event will discuss key issues including the latest legislation, SUDS and flood management, FOG (fat oil and grease) solutions, wastewater management and smart metering.

While at ET, a packed programme of seminars will include speaker topics on commercial and industrial waste management, waste procurement, recycling and licensing standards, waste to energy, CAD, environmental legislation, air pollution, managing firewater spillage as well as green transport.

The seminar programme at NEMEX will address a wide range of issues including government policy, skills and training, carbon reduction strategies, and energy standards. Delegates can also attend sessions on grants and financing, procurement and energy supply, energy efficiency services and behavioural changes required for implementing energy efficiency measures.

Visitors can also take advantage of the co-located exhibition HEVAR, the UK event for buyers and specifiers in the heating, ventilating, air conditioning and refrigeration industry, which includes seminars on energy management in a range of environments, as well as renewable technologies. In addition, there will be sessions run by the Heat Pump Association and BRE on Wednesday 25th May 2011.
