Among the renewable energy technologies present, solar photovoltaic and biomass were well represented, but the wind industry was nowhere to be seen.

The expo ran just three weeks after the British Wind Energy Association's well attended annual conference and exhibition, also held in southern in England. Exhibitors at Olympia were generally enthusiastic about the quality of visitor, reporting that they included corporate and business representatives, some local authorities and some individuals off the street.
