The co-founder of a north Northumberland green energy firm has taken his expertise Stateside to address hundreds of delegates at the International Biomass Conference and Expo.

Neil Harrison, who established Alnwick-based re:heat with Ben Tansey in 2011, was on the panel for two sessions at the event which ran from Monday until yesterday in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

“It’s a great opportunity to discuss the worldwide growth of the biomass industry and of course to further establish re:heat on the sector’s global map,” said Neil before the trip.

“I will be discussing the opportunities that exist for biomass to play an even bigger role in the UK’s energy mix and I will share my thoughts on how well-developed policy and market-mechanisms can support this sustainable growth.

Neil also chairs the UK’s Wood Head Association and is heading up an Apprenticeship Trailblazers programme.
