Green Expo 2023 is being held on the banks of the River Dee at Castle Drive in Chester next week on June 15-17 to showcase the North West & North Wales’ green credentials and as part of the UK’s Great Big Green Week.

The free Exposition will have over 30 displays with the opportunity to see and test drive the WhatCar? and Which Electric Vehicle ‘Car of the Year’ 2023, the new MG4 EV, alongside the Subaru Solterra both courtesy of Gallaghers Motors.

Technology for home energy to reduce bills and save climate change will be on show and power will be provided by solar and wind means. Hydro power will be demonstrated too, a few yards from what used to be Chester’s Hydro electric plant in the 1950s, meeting much of the City’s power needs then.

Visitors to Green Expo at Riverside, Castle Drive won’t go hungry with street food, craft beer and artisan crafts on offer including arguably the best coffee and bread in the city. There are also activities for children and opportunities to talk to specialists about key topics like climate change, the circular economy and saving energy, water and waste – reducing bills.

Helen Tandy, Director, Eco Communities who is helping organise Green Expo said; We were more than happy to help in 2022 and this is now part of our events programme. Organisations are coming together to illustrate progress on Net Zero and Sustainability in all walks of life. Organisations like Chester Zoo, Cheshire West and Chester Council, Ginger, the Greener Group, Genfit and EcoVert Solutions will all be on hand to talk about what they are doing in this space. They have electric cars to electric scooters and bikes. Fancy installing solar at home ? Look no further than this event to find out more. Looking to make some eco changes to your home, again you will find what you need to know at the Green Exposition.”

Dwr Cymru Welsh Water, the RSPB, WWF and others will be there too.

It all adds up to making Chester ‘the Green Heart of the North’.

The programme of Green Hut talks over the three days of Green Expo is available from the web site together with more information at
