Paul Holland, BMEA Chairman welcomed the delegates to what proved to be the biggest Conference yet with a high number of delegates. He thanked all those organisations who had kindly sponsored the day, particularly the Conferences main sponsor Victron Energy. He also thanked all the speakers for their expertise, their time and effort in providing the day with relevant topics both technical and of a more general interest. Paul had attended the recent NMEA convention and stated that he felt the BMEA relationship with NMEA was both important and going forward well.
The Regional Growth Fund is a discretionary £1.4bn Fund that will operate for three years between 2011 and 2014 to stimulate enterprise by providing support for projects and programmes with significant potential for creating long term private sector led economic growth and employment. In particular it will help those areas and communities that are currently dependent on the public sector make the transition to sustainable private sector-led growth and prosperity. This applies to England only and separate arrangements are being made under the devolved administrations.
