Existing REI digital subscribers have been offered the opportunity to request their complimentary copy and the publisher has reported a rapid uptake.

Copies are also being made available through leading industry organisations as well as to visitors to Solar & Storage Live, and the first new issue will have a special focus on the exciting growth in solar & storage alongside a roundup of sector developments, insights from leading voices, interviews, latest news, and features.

Topics covered will include:

Opportunity to get involved

Looking to facilitate industry communications, there are many ways in which those in the sector can get involved with REI including the opportunity to submit press releases or other articles for consideration as well as advertising opportunities for those who offer valuable sector services.
