2016 will be an important year for energy and climate policy, both in Ireland and internationally. With the new energy White Paper, the Government has set out the future of energy policy with a view to 2030 and beyond. In the global context, the COP 21 climate talks have concluded now and agreement has been reached to limit the global temperature increase to 2.0°C with an ambition towards achieving 1.5°C. All of this will have major implications for the energy sector in Ireland and will raise questions for industry executives, policy-makers and regulators.

Climate policy will have a direct impact on the future energy mix, after a period of focus on more economic issues. This renewed focus comes at a time of uncertainty with electricity market redesign, a new renewable energy support mechanism and global economic uncertainty.

Energy Ireland has organised a high level summit, with the support of the Department of Communications, Energy and Natural Resources, to bring together the key players in the energy and climate arena in Ireland for a day of policy discussion and networking.

Themes examined will include:

  • Energy and climate change policy in 2016
  • Analysing Ireland's emissions inventory
  • Decarbonising Ireland’s energy industry
  • The European perspective – meeting 2030 targets
  • Economic impact of decarbonisation
  • Scotland’s climate and energy ambitions
  • An NGO viewpoint on climate
