Aberdeen Continues to Attract High Profile Energy Events

David-Gray Conference Chair, Professor David Gray


Aberdeen is continuing to prove itself to be a strong choice for energy related events with 500 industry professionals and academic delegates from the clean and renewable energy industry visiting Aberdeen for the 15th Annual International Conference on Clean Energy (ICCE). The conference will take place at Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC) on 14th-17th August 2017.

Delegates should expect the conference to cover major themes within the industry such as the impact of clean energy on the environment and the fundamental knowledge about the clean energy processes. The conference will allow excellent opportunities for academics and professionals to share knowledge and network with colleagues.

The conference was secured by Associate Dean for Research at Aberdeen Business School and local Conference Chair, Professor David Gray, with additional support from TeamAberdeen, a collaboration of expertise from Aberdeen City and Shire Councils, The University of Aberdeen, AECC, Aberdeen International Airport, RGU and VisitAberdeenshire, to secure high profile conferences for the city. TeamAberdeen support the conference bid by helping with conference organisation, sourcing hotel accommodation and identifying superb venues for the conference to take place in. ICCE received additional support from Aberdeen City Council and  the VisitAberdeenshire Subvention Fund which was match funded by VisitScotland’s Conference Bid Fund with the aim to help attract more business tourism to Scotland.

Conference Chair, Professor Gray said, “To bring such a prestigious international event to Aberdeen is a real coup for the city and for RGU and I am extremely proud that the events team will be playing host to several hundred academics who are experts in the field of alternative energy.”

Aberdeen City Council Leader Councillor Jenny Laing said “The city is already capitalising on its world-renowned engineering expertise by moving into clean and sustainable energy, and the City Council has furthered that knowledge base by investing in hydrogen-powered buses and vehicles.

“We look forward to welcoming the companies and delegates from around the globe who will be attending the conference in our beautiful city.”

Sales Manager at AECC, Steven Daun commented: “Having the International Conference on Clean Energy in Aberdeen is a fantastic achievement for the local Ambassador, Professor Gray and TeamAberdeen as it allows us to showcase the fantastic research and work which is currently happening in Aberdeen within this sector.”
