Toyota and Nissan at Low Carbon Expo

Toyota and Nissan at Low Carbon Expo

Low Carbon Expo 2011, the first low carbon exhibition to be held in Wales, will be held at Cardiff Motorpoint Arena on 16-17 September – bringing businesses and consumers together under one roof, over 3,000 visitors are expected.

Exhibitors will be showcasing energy-saving products and services as well as offering education and advice, interactive workshops and live demonstrations. Over 100 companies are expected to be exhibiting at the show.

The Low Carbon Expo will feature an eco-transport pavilion with Toyota and Nissan showcasing their latest high-performance hybrid electric vehicles.

Toyota has introduced the new Auris hybrid model following the success of the Prius, while Nissan has developed a new electric vehicle called the Leaf. Besides these eco vehicles on show, a driving simulator provided by the Energy Saving Trust will offer visitors the chance to discover new ways of saving fuel when driving.

The organisers of the show have also revealed some new transport related media partners including Green Car Design, an online magazine looking at environmental car design; Green Fleet, a trade magazine promoting the use of cleaner vehicle fleet management; and Next Green Car, an online car guide covering electric, hybrid and other low emission vehicles.

Peter Middleton, the founder Low Carbon Expo, commented, "The transport pavilion at Low Carbon Expo will clearly be an important aspect to the show. Toyota and Honda will join other hi-tech eco transport exhibitors and help raise the profile of green motoring in the UK."

Visitors to the event will also have the opportunity to seek advice on home insulation and learn more about a wide range of renewable energy technologies, including solar PV (photovoltaic) panels, ground source heat pumps and wind turbines.

A free seminar programme is planned at the event, tackling key issues affecting the UK's low carbon economy. The discussion groups will provide a useful opportunity for delegates to network with industry peers. John Griffiths, Minister for Environment and Sustainable Development in the Welsh Government, is a guest speaker.

"With a full and wide-ranging speaker programme and more than 50 companies already participating at the event, we're expecting plenty of interest in the remaining exhibition spaces available at the event," added Jay Doyle, Marketing Manager for Low Carbon Expo.
