Energy in Agriculture Returns To Gurteen College

We are delighted to announce the launch of Energy in Agriculture 2017 on 22nd August. Now in its second year, we will have a brand new line up of talks and demos from sustainable energy experts. Due to the high demand last year, there will be one large exhibition area within the college to accommodate more stands, plus plenty of outdoor spaces.

New for this year will be the introduction of an energy clinic. You can book a one to one consultation with an energy expert to discuss your energy project in detail. This advisory service is free and can be booked in advance through our website.

Come along and see what opportunities are available to you. If you are interested in attending this free event, please register your interest here. And don’t forget to follow us on Facebook & Twitter to keep up to date with the latest news. We look forward to seeing you there!
