Salmond to speak at energy show

SCOTLAND’S first minister Alex Salmond has been added to the line-up for All-Energy 2012, the renewable energy exhibition and conference in Aberdeen.
He will join UK energy minister Charles Hendry and executives from ScottishPower and the Health & Safety Executive in the opening session of the show that is being held May 23-24.
“This opening session of the conference certainly gets All-Energy 2012 off to a flying start,” said Jamie Thompson, event manager at organiser Reed Exhibitions.
For the first time, All-Energy has been selected as the venue for one of The Crown Estate’s UK offshore wind supply chain seminars.
Features include three new zones focusing on offshore maintenance, energy efficiency and low carbon vehicles.
