Energy Ireland 2023

Towards an integrated, clean and secure energy system

11 and 12 May ∙ Croke Park, Dublin




Technology partner

Towards an integrated, clean and secure energy system

The energy sector is leading the way in Ireland’s decarbonisation to net zero by 2050. The energy transition will see an acceleration in the development of renewable energy and the increased electrification of the heat and transport sectors. In electricity, wind energy – both onshore and offshore – will have the main role, with solar also playing an important role. This year has also seen a dramatic rise in natural gas prices globally and the security of supply of Ireland’s electricity grid has come under the spotlight. This comes against a backdrop of a fast-growing economy that is rebounding from the pandemic. However, not every sector will be suitable for clean electricity, particularly many transport and heating applications. The decarbonisation of the gas network is gathering pace. Biomethane is now beginning to play a role and the prospect of green hydrogen offers Ireland an opportunity to optimise its renewable energy resources. This year’s conference will bring all these threads together to look at Ireland’s energy future.

Energy Ireland 2023 will bring together all the key stakeholders in the Irish energy sector to discuss and debate the key drivers of the energy transition and the current energy price crunch. It will look forward the developments that will decarbonise Ireland’s increasingly integrated energy system.

Feedback from past #EnergyIreland delegates

Delighted to present this morning @energyireland. We had a great discussion on i) how we accelerate the additional technologies, ii) how much it will cost, iii) who pays, iv) how do we move the discussion beyond one of electrification and v) how do we get the necessary governance in place. Thanks to @energyireland audience!

Great to be part of today's @energyireland Annual Conference. We’re leading Ireland’s ambition to deliver 1GW of new #offshorewind by 2025 and 5GW by 2030, helping to create a cleaner and more resilient economy that will support new local jobs and drive our green recovery.
