With an expected doubling of electricity demand by 2030, renewable energy is the key to ensuring the decarbonisation of the energy and electricity sector in Ireland.
Key Sectors to Achieve Net Zero
- Onshore Wind
- Offshore Wind
- Solar Power
- Tidal / Wave Power
- Bio Fuels
Meet with the key decision makers and influencers responsible for policy implementation, construction and operational responsibilities during this informative and thought provoking day. Decarbonisation of the Irish electricity system has been one of Ireland’s real success stories. Emissions from electricity generation in Ireland have decreased by 51.4% between 2001 and 2020. This decrease reflects the improvement in energy efficiency of modern gas fired power plants and an increased share of renewables on the Irish electricity system. While the Government has set ambitious targets for the ongoing roll-out of renewable energy generating capacity, including 5GW of offshore wind by 2030, with the expected increase of 19 – 50% in total electricity demand over the next 10 years, decoupling economic growth from energy emissions will be crucial.
