About the show

The future of energy generation is flexible, decentralised and renewable.

Energy users, network operators and the entire energy supply-chain come to The Distributed Energy Show to see technology in action.

The show features the UK’s widest array of technologies for onsite and localised heat & power generation along with the infrastructure, software and components necessary to connect to the energy network and implement a low-cost, low-carbon energy strategy.

“I’ve had such great discussions the past two days. I think the real joy of this show is the breadth in which it brings us together, in terms of across the energy system and creates these new discussions, so we are not just thinking in silos in terms of electricity generation or energy efficiency or heat. Its everyone coming together to try to get something that’s really going to work that can move us forward to decarbonisation.”
