Ireland's energy transition

2019 is a seminal 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. This year’s Energy Ireland will look at the political and policy context to Ireland’s energy transition. It will investigate the key dimensions and challenges of the transition to a low carbon energy system and look at the quickly evolving energy technology choices.

The conference will look at the next phase of development for renewable energy and how high levels of intermittent renewables can be facilitated by more flexible energy markets. The programme will look at the next phase of renewable electricity sources. Although much of the focus to date has been on the electricity network, this year’s conference will look at the Future Role of Gas (FRoG). There is now the opportunity to decarbonise the existing extensive natural gas network that now extends across much of the island. The conference programme will look at using biomethane and hydrogen in existing infrastructure and also at Carbon Capture and Storage technology for power generation from renewable gas.
