Solar Media, which publishes trade titles including Clean Energy News and Solar Power Portal, is working with The Whitehouse Consultancy to raise its profile with industry leaders in the clean energy sector and help it “engage positively” within the policy environment.
The brief asks the agency to use the development of high-profile discussion events at industry conferences to raise the profile of Solar Media. Whitehouse will also contribute news content to Solar Media’s online news portals and print publications regularly.
It will deliver policy insight for Solar Media’s Clean Energy Summit in April (formerly Large Scale Solar UK) which takes places in Twickenham, the Rooftops UK series in July and September, and the Clean Energy Live event in October in Birmingham’s NEC.
Helen Munro, Whitehouse MD, said: “The solar industry has grown exponentially in recent years and promises an exciting future as we transition towards a low-subsidy environment. Under this new partnership, we will provide real insight into current and future policy opportunities and challenges in the UK and the EU and how they affect business ambitions and investments.”
Tim Mann, MD at Solar Media, added: “We’re delighted to be working with the Whitehouse team. They bring an enormous amount of policy knowledge at a time when we’re likely to see numerous major announcements for the clean energy sector.
“We enjoyed working with Whitehouse during Solar Energy UK last year and look forward to continuing to share their insights with our readers and delegates.“
