Annual Energy Efficiency Exhibition 31 January 2007

Interest is building around the Energy Efficiency Exhibition being held at the Villa Marina from the 19th to the 21st of February. The exhibition, the third so far, is being sponsored by the DTI to encourage businesses and consumers to investigate ways to save or generate energy.

The objective of the exhibition is to make people aware of energy saving solutions available to businesses and individuals on the Isle of Man.

The Minister for Trade & Industry, Hon David Cretney MHK expresses his support for the exhibition, stating “This event can make an enormous difference by showing businesses how to reduce operating costs by becoming more energy efficient. This exhibition provides a great opportunity to seek advice.”

The exhibition is open from 12noon until 6pm for businesses on Monday 19th and 9am until 6pm on Tuesday and Wednesday, 20th and 21st for everyone.

The website for the Exhibition is now live. Anyone interested in finding out more about the Exhibitors and their products and services is encouraged to visit the website on www.gov.im/dti/energy

* C.J Campbell, who was born in 1931, took a D. Phil in geology at Oxford University before joining the oil industry in 1958. His career opened as a field geologist in Borneo, Trinidad, Colombia and New Guinea, before he moved into regional evaluation and management, ending as an Executive Vice-President in Norway. During his career he observed the dwindling number of genuine new prospects and the decline in the size of discovery. Research with the Norwegian authorities formed the basis for his first book on the subject (The Golden Century of Oil) followed by four others, many publications and presentations to industry and government. He is founder of the Association for the Study of Peak Oil ("ASPO") which is now represented in over 25 countries.
