This was the second year of Energy Symposium which aims to act as an annual forum for industry professionals to share their insights and knowledge. Attendees at this year’s Energy Symposium comprised a broad cross-section of Ireland’s industrial energy ecosystem, ranging from academic institutions, government agencies, large energy users, small medium enterprises, technical consultants and product manufacturers.
This year’s event was held in conjunction with the Department of Communications, Climate action and Environment with Bob Hanna, Chief TekeynoteAdvisor to the Minister opening the event on Thursday evening by providing insights around current government policy, further keynote talks were given by Raoul Empey (Climate Change) and Louis Roy (Circular Economy) set the scene for Friday’s coffee shop discussions “ how can Ireland’s transition to a low carbon economy” and specifically what research and development is required to aid this transition.
The Energy Symposium provides a mechanism for dialogue between Industry and Government with the outputs from the event presented in a white paper detailing industry’s response to defining the research and innovation required to support Ireland’s Energy Transition.
