Power engineering experts, R&B Switchgear Group are set to host some of the most influential stakeholders from across the renewable energy sector at this year’s esteemed Solar & Storage Live event at the NEC Birmingham.
The 3-day event, taking place from 17th-19th October, will see R&B Switchgear Group showcase its cutting-edge power distribution capabilities and solutions which have already been installed across large-scale solar farms, infrastructure & Government sites throughout the UK.
The specialist engineering company has experienced a 540% uplift in enquiries from clients supporting the renewables sector since 2020 and is already supporting the generation of clean, carbon-free electricity for thousands of UK homes and Her Majesty’s prison network.
To date, the R&B Switchgear Group team has developed fully bespoke projects for solar, fusion energy and electric vehicle companies, all dedicated to developing safe, sustainable energy for a brighter future.
As a leading authority on power infrastructure projects, R&B Switchgear Group has successfully designed, manufactured, and installed low and high-voltage equipment. This includes packaged substation solutions, feeder pillars compliant with G99 & G100 standards, surge protection, cabling, and the creation of infrastructure to support battery storage facilities, enabling the storage of excess energy generated on-site.
Speaking of the event, Managing Director Mark Beswick said: “The renewable energy sector is rapidly expanding and is on track to become the leading global provider of power generation by 2050, with as much as 90 percent coming from renewable sources1. There is mounting pressure from Governments, businesses, authorities, and the public to embrace radical change and create solutions which will propel us towards carbon-neutral targets.
“As the sector grows, the impact becomes clear. One of our recent projects will help to reduce more than 1,300 tonnes of carbon from the earth’s atmosphere and save our client around £800,000 in energy costs every year.Mark Beswick, Managing Director at R&B Switchgear Group
