London energy firms are being urged to find out how they can benefit from international opportunities at the renewable energy roadshow on 28 May at The EIC, 89 Albert Embankment.

UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) have arranged for market specialists from 15 countries, including Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, France, Germany, India and Japan to be available for one-to-one discussions to provide expert advice on growing overseas sales in renewable energy.

"Whether a company is already established in these markets, or merely considering them for the first time, market experts will be able to offer up to date information and advice that will add real benefit to a firm's export sales. Like all sectors across the UK, companies need to be looking further afield to increase sales," UKTI's renewable energy specialist for London, International Trade Adviser Carl Woolf, said.

"We have an increasing need for, and a growing recognition of the importance of renewables. The UK has pledged to ensure at least 15% of its energy comes from renewable sources by 2020.The previous £15bn investment may be dwarfed over the next ten years. At least £100bn — and some estimates go higher - could be invested in the UK by 2020.

"There are already well over 1,000 businesses working in the sector and the number is rising as the sector expands to meet government targets and address climate change issues."
