Gattaca Communications, in association with Bowhead Media Ltd and supported by the Saudi Solar Industries Association and Emirates Solar Industry Association, is delighted to announce the 1st dedicated, totally-solar technologies exhibition to take place in the UAE, with GulfSol 2013 in Dubai. Huge levels of investment across the entire Middle East, MENA and Gulf regions into renewable energy have created a fantastic opportunity for all those connected with solar and PV technology. Make sure you are a part of this most exciting and vibrant of solar centre on the first focused exhibition platform in the region, in what is becoming the solar industry’s natural home, Dubai. Targets across the Gulf and wider Middle East region are now being set in place to provide alternatives to the overburdened electricity grid system and given that in most countries, wind generation is relatively minimal, solar is the most readily available technology. Dubai presents an international platform with genuine global and regional reach, providing the perfect location to site this first edition of GulfSol. Intended to focus attention solely on the solar industry, the exhibition will ensure that technology suppliers are provided with a dedicated opportunity to showcase their clean-energy abilities and establish themselves in what is viewed as one of the solar sector’s genuine hotspots.

A course for anyone looking to develop community engagement for energy-saving and climate change. “Engaging on engagement!” Paul Radcliffe (Environment Agency) “I really enjoyed the event - Excellent!” Liz Horsfield (Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea) “Interesting and very well organised!” Monica Nadolny (Groundwork) “Informative with new ideas and techniques to take forward” Evangeline Wood (West Berkshire & Wokingham Council) Communities and the people in them have important roles to play in tackling energy and climate change issues. The Green Deal, community energy projects, fuel poverty action and simple energy efficiency work all need active local engagement. This course will teach you the skills and information needed to develop long-term engagement of civil society organisations, groups and individuals in work on energy efficient climate change and low-carbon living. The Localism Act stresses the need for better community engagement: the question is how to make that engagement happen on these complex issues. While some groups are active on limiting and adapting to climate change, this poses unique challenges to the majority who may have other interests and priorities. People attending this course will: • Learn the ways in which community engagement can deliver lasting change on climate and energy issues • Understand the issues around community engagement • Be clear on the best ways to start a dialogue • Learn to lead a discussion on the positive aspects of low carbon living. • Learn to support and work with communities. • Be able to offer guidance to any community group on reducing their own foot print • Receive guidance on how to develop an action plan. Who should attend the training? The course will benefit anyone working with or seeking to work with community organisations on community energy, behaviour change, projects or local action planning. It will include a review of work around the Green Deal and lessons learnt from recent energy programmes. It is designed for climate and energy staff, community workers, organisers and activists. It covers approaches to work with both enthusiastic and less engaged communities. All participants will have time to work on developing their own actions plans for work after the course. Electronic resources will be available to all participants.
