Solar and Storage Live 2021: HIES’s Review

Solar and Storage Live 2021 recently came to Birmingham NEC. Solar and Storage Live is an event where those in the renewable industry get together for three days of learning and forming relationships with others in the industry. There were over 100 exhibitors there showcasing their products or services that all help transform the industry.

We exhibited at the event on stand D42 and were able to meet many passionate individuals from the sector. On our stand we spoke to many individuals about how HIES can help renewable energy businesses, not only as a Consumer Code but as an extension of their own business. At HIES we aim to bring value to our members at all the different stages of their installer journey and we explained exactly how we do this to those who visited us at the event.

We had a fantastic three days exhibiting at the event, but what did we think of the event and what were our key takeaways? Keep reading to find out…

Inspiring industry

The industry is an inspiring one to be in. We met so many installers, manufacturers, and distributors who are innovative, forward-thinking and are leading the industry in the right direction. The industry is going from strength to strength and we’re truly excited to be a part of it. We’re excited to watch the industry, and those in it, continue to grow over the next decade.

Consumer Codes have a huge role to play

We were pleased to meet so many installers who approached us with their positive feedback about Consumer Codes. Many believe that having Consumer Codes in the industry is of utmost importance and it was great to have a discussion about it. We were thrilled to hear feedback on HIES and how installers saw the value in HIES for not only being a Consumer Code but for offering so much more than that as well.

Net Zero

The industry is working hard to achieve Government’s Net Zero target and ensure that together as an industry we can match the current, and upcoming, consumer demand. The future for renewable energy is looking bright (and busy) and the enthusiasm for the future was very much felt at the event.

We loved exhibiting at the event and seeing the industry come together. We’re already looking forward to the next one!
