Thursday 16th and Friday 17th June in Croke Park, Dublin, Lisandra and Aedín attended the 20th annual Energy Ireland conference – Ireland’s energy transition.
This was Ireland’s major annual energy conference with plenary and workshop sessions and 40 speakers, in two full days, from the European Commission, Department of Communications, Energy and Natural Resources, Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland, International Energy Agency, Danish Energy Agency, Imperial College London, University of Cambridge, Oxford Institute for Energy Studies, International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), Irish industry leaders and others.
The conference focused on:
- Ireland’s energy transition
- Networks and infrastructure
- Gas markets developments
- Solar energy in Ireland
- Energy and climate change
- Energy citizens
- Energy storage
- Electricity market re-design
The conference was a good opportunity for Lisandra and Aedín to exchange experiences and learn with European and Irish energy leaders, network with key players in Ireland, analyse business development opportunities, interact with speakers, get inspiration for current projects and ideas for new ones.
Our volunteer Lisandra was very amazed with the event:
This two days were very energising and a good opportunity to gather information for my Position Paper about Solar Energy in Ireland, which will be available next month. The quality of the speakers, the materials provided and the effort putted on this conference were very inspiring and shows that Ireland can play a good role in the transition to a low carbon future.
