The All-Energy Exhibition & Conference is the UK's largest event devoted to all forms of clean and renewable energy. Colin returns to the conference this year to present at two separate sessions.

In this presenation, he joins a high profile panel to discuss the way forward for microgeneration and on-site renewables. He draws on his considerable knowledge of the UK microgeneration sector as the author of AEA’s Microgeneration Index, which tracked the uptake of microgeneration during the first year of the Feed-in Tariff.
