A standard Green Power Conference includes refreshments on arrival, morning and afternoon breaks, a hot buffet lunch, a networking drinks reception and access to the two-day conference. This may differ for some events. Note: Accommodation, travel and transfers are NOT covered in the registration fee.

What is the difference between the Profit and Non-Profit rate?

The Non-Profit rate is available to an incorporated organization which exists for educational or charitable reasons, and from which its shareholders or trustees do not benefit financially. Non-Profit rates are to enable governmental organisations, charities and or educational facilities to attend our conferences. This is typically a 20% or more discount off the standard fee.

To qualify for this rate you may need to provide documentation to confirm your Non-Profit status.

Am I eligible for special discounts or free passes?

At certain events we offer passes at greatly reduced rates to enable certain organisations to attend who wouldn't otherwise be able to - we do this with financial support from our sponsors and stakeholders. For example, some of our carbon finance events benefit from Project host passes which are awarded to companies from Non-Annex 1 countries that are reducing emissions from large or small scale CDM project activities within their business.

Project hosts passes and other subsidised rates will be awarded at the sole discretion of Green Power Conferences. These are only available on selected conferences - please check the event website for further details.

Are there any group discounts? What does the ‘3 for 2 offer’ consist of?

We offer a ‘3 for 2’ discount on some events - when two people book, a third person can attend for free. This applies to three people booking at the same time and covers delegates booking from different companies. This offer cannot be applied once a booking has already been processed. This offer is only available on selected conferences - please check the event website for further details.

Do you have student rates for your events?

Student rates are available on a discretionary basis. Please contact the Event Coordinator to discuss this - contact details for the event Coordinator can be found on the contact page on the event website.

Speaking Opportunities

How can I become a speaker at a Green Power Conference?

To become a speaker at a Green Conference event you can either contact the Research Analyst whose name is detailed on an event website or brochure or alternatively please email research@greenpowerconferences.com referencing the event(s) you are interested in.

Please supply:

  1. A brief biography (3-4 lines) for your company and proposed speaker(s)
  2. A topic outline (title, 4-5 bullets and brief synopsis) and attach other supporting material.

Depending on the stage of the conference you will then either be contacted to follow up or placed on the reserve list of speakers if the agenda is already complete.

I am a speaker at a Green Power event, what is required of me?

Depending on the style of conference a speaking position could be chairing or moderating part of the conference, a 20-25 minute presentation or participating in a panel discussion as well as other formats on occasion. The conference researcher will discuss this with you as the programme is brought together. We try and make our events as interactive as possible and allow as much time for discussion on the day.

Once your role is defined the logistics executive (event coordinator) will follow up with a speaker pack containing further details and requirements. If you are providing a PowerPoint presentation this will be required approximately 3 weeks in advance of the event so it can be included on the conference memory stick documentation. Session and panel briefings when required will be sent out by the Research Analyst about a week before the conference to start discussions and ensure productive discussion at the event.

About Green Power Conferences

I have never attended a Green Power Conference before. What can I expect?

Green Power Conferences are research led independent events that provide information, interactivity and networking for our delegates. The quality of the conference agenda is the cornerstone of the event. Many of the series and events in our portfolio have been established for several years and have a proven track record and when we launch new events we invest in our database of contacts to ensure these events are a success as well.

With so many other events in the sustainability sector, why should I choose to attend a Green Power Conference?

Green Power Conferences focuses entirely in this sector and has built an excellent reputation within the industry which enables us to work with key industry associations and publications to maximise these events. As we are not producing non sustainability events it also enables our research team to develop their expertise and further improve the quality of the agendas.

Why do you organise conferences which focus on the biofuels industry? Does this not conflict with your green policies?

Biofuels is a fantastic alternative fuel if created in a sustainable manner. Our events are focusing on the sustainable development of Biofuels in all regions of the world as well as looking at next generation technologies that are even more effective. Our events will assist the industry to reach these new greener technologies faster.

Why do you print and mail hardcopy versions of your programmes?

Green Power try to market responsibly both for the environment and in the way that we use people's contact data. We use paper from renewable sources and environmentally responsible suppliers, we use telephone, email and fax marketing as much as we can to reduce environmental impact and we carbon offset where possible, and even our web hosting is Carbon Neutral.

As much as we try not to; we still have to use a small amount of postal mail because it is an effective marketing channel, which ensures a profitable level of attendance at our events – without postal mail some of our conferences would not be viable.

We would like to give you the opportunity to choose how we contact you about our products.

Are any side events organised alongside Green Power events?

Yes, many of our conferences have seminars and workshops alongside them to enable delegates to discuss related issues in more depth. These can be booked alongside the main conference days.

What does Green Power do to make its events sustainable?

We recognise that our work may have a direct or indirect effect on the local and/or regional environments in which we operate. We therefore strive to reduce any harm that this may cause on the environment. As the first company to offer professionally organised events focusing on the sustainability sector, we are as committed to applying best green practices within our own company as we are to promoting green issues and the sustainability sector around the world.
