Ireland's decade of decarbonisation

2020 is a pivotal moment in the transition of the global energy sector to a low carbon future. With climate change taking on a renewed urgency in the public consciousness, the decarbonisation of the energy sector will only accelerate in the coming years. Now in its 24th year, Energy Ireland is the major annual conference event for the Irish energy sector and will bring together over 300 delegates from the Irish energy sector and beyond for three days of discussion.

Conference format

Energy Ireland will be using an online platform that will allow speakers and delegates to follow the normal structure of a conference. This will include:

  • Chair and speakers on screen during the session
  • Speakers will be able to use powerpoint slides
  • A Q&A session with delegates being able to post questions, moderated by the chair
  • A chat facility for delegates to make comments, moderated by Energy Ireland
  • A twitter feed to be visible to all participants
  • A ‘handout’ facility will allow delegates to receive relevant documentation

Delegates will get a ‘conference experience’ that goes beyond the normal video conferencing meeting formats.
