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 two days of discussion and networking.
