Ireland Power Conference, 24th April


The Irish energy sector is on the cusp of a dramatic and substantial overhaul, driven by the need to shift to a greener economy. The next year will significantly alter the shape of the market and how the energy system on the island of Ireland functions.

Transformation in the electricity market; expanding and greening the gas grid; improving national and international interconnection; and ensuring the infrastructure is ready and able to cope with the growing electrification of heat and transportation, are just some of the challenges on the horizon. What’s more, innovative technologies are opening up opportunities for networks to become smarter, enabling energy players to optimise existing assets.

All of this essential change is coming under the significant uncertainty cloud of Brexit. How the UK goes about its departure from the European Union will have a profound impact on the integrated single energy market in Ireland which crosses the border between the North and the Republic. Its operation, and the energy security and climate change ambitions of the island, rely on finding a pragmatic and workable solution.

Key topics to be addressed include:

  • The sustainable provision of energy services in Ireland
  • Regulatory challenges facing the Irish energy sector
  • Developing and operating an integrated electricity market
  • Meeting the climate change commitments
  • Driving innovation in the Irish energy sector
  • Encouraging investment in green and renewable technologies
  • Creating a flexible energy system

This conference will take place on April 24th in the Red Cow Moran Hotel.  More information on this event can be found here
