Energy Ireland 2022
Ireland’s decade of delivery

29 and 30 June ∙ Croke Park, Dublin

Main sponsors



The current decade is crucial in Ireland’s transition to a low carbon energy future. Climate action has gained an urgency in the public consciousness and is now a political priority. With the publication of the Government’s Climate Action Plan in late 2021, the energy sector will do the heavy lifting in Ireland’s decarbonisation to net zero in 2050. This will see an acceleration in the development of renewable energy and the electrification of the heat and transport sectors. 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.

Energy Ireland 2022 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 to the developments for this crucial decade and examine the deployment of developing technologies such as energy storage and green hydrogen.

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.
