Tuesday in Kells, Co. Meath, Lisandra and Liam attended a presentation about Solar Electricity in Ireland.

This was a joint event between Engineers Ireland (North East region) and their Energy – Environment division.

The speaker was Robert Goss Director of Solar Electric in Wexford, who has worked in the solar PV industry for six years, firstly in the UK and currently in Ireland.

Solar Electric is an organisation working across the solar PV market from domestic installations to commercial rooftops. They were the installers of the largest PV project in Ireland, localized in County Tipperary.

The presentation focused on:

-Why to choose solar electric in Ireland (presenting the challenges, benefits and opportunities for auto generation, commercial and agricultural uses)

-Some of the UK large-scale solar installations

-The largest photovoltaic (PV) installation projects in the Republic of Ireland and

-Q&A session.

The presentation was a good opportunity for Lisandra and Liam to network, exchange experiences and gather information for the Position Paper about Solar Energy in Ireland which will be available soon.
