Fancy a glass of wine at BWEA Connect?

Debby and I are looking forward to attending the next BWEA Connect evening on Wednesday 10th December at the Institute of Civil Engineers in London.

With over 400 people registered already, it’s going to be a fun (and very busy) evening, hopefully with a festive theme to it! With people from every angle of the Renewable Energy sector - legal, insurance, technical and consultancies - it’s such a great opportunity to find out about what’s new and what’s hot in the Wind Energy sector, and beyond.

Another great reason for going is the venue itself. Last time I was in the ICE’s headquarters, in Great George Street (also at a BWEA event as it happens), I found myself suddenly very self conscious about the fact I was staring at the ceiling, at a wonderful painting illustrating the involvement of Civil Engineers in the First World War. It’s a fantastic building, designed by James Miller and completed in 1913. James Miller was a Scottish Architect, also famously known for many of his buildings in Glasgow, and Scottish railway stations. I wonder if he realised that his building would host events such as a meeting of hundreds of dedicated professionals, committed to helping generate clean energy in the UK and across the world.

If you can find the time (and if there’s still space, register here or check with Alice from BWEA), it’ll be a great way to start the Christmas season! We look forward to seeing you there, don't forget to let us know you are coming via the EcoSearch Facebook page.
