Green Stallholders

Our Green Stallholders are organisations who provide important services for arts and culture organisations that are trying to reduce their environmental impact. They will be present throughout the day at their stalls in the Auditorium.

Good Energy, Move on Wood Recycling, and the Energy Saving Trust will also be hosting sessions about their work between 4pm and 4.30pm. See below and on the programme page for more information.


Good Energy

Good Energy is a pioneering clean energy company, established in 1999 by Juliet Davenport to tackle climate change and make it easier for people and business to make renewable energy part of their everyday lives.

We are built on a deep sense of purpose – to power the choice of a cleaner, greener future

We have been leading the way in renewable energy development since 1999 in areas including small and larger scale wind turbines, solar panels, biogen and hydro, and now in technologies like battery storage and electric vehicles.

Good Energy powers homes and businesses with 100% renewable electricity from a community of over 1,400 UK generators and owns and operate two wind farms, including the UK’s first commercial wind farm, and six solar farms.

We have a diverse fuel mix to protect us from significant weather impacts and help meet our customers demand more effectively.

We work in partnership with a range of partners including Eden Project, BAFTA, and Julies Bicycle as a result, many businesses and organisations within the creative sector recognise Good Energy as a way to personally decarbonise and support renewables in general.

Good energy will be running the session ‘Powering the Green Arts’ from 4pm-4.30pm in the Hall.

Move On Wood Recycling

Move On Wood Recycling is a social enterprise run by the charity Move On.

We provide a waste wood collection service in a similar way to skip companies but are better value for money.

We drive much smaller vehicles but can still remove up to 12 cubic yards of waste compared to 8 for your typical skip.  Most customers are saving around 40% compared to skip companies and we’ve already completed large collections for Underbelly, Assembly and The Pleasance.

We take all timber back to our workshop where we de-nail it and sell on the wood.  Our timber is about 40% cheaper than new prices.

We also make furniture, provide volunteering opportunities and deliver formal training for young unemployed people.

We are registered with SEPA as a waste carrier and always provide waste transfer notes.

Move On Wood Recycling will be running the session ‘Better Waste Solutions for Green Arts’ from 4pm-4.30pm in the Islay breakout room
