Irish Renewable Energy Summit 2020:
The major annual conference for the Irish renewable sector
To date renewable energy has been focused on the electricity sector with 40 per cent of electricity generated from renewable sources. The Climate Action Plan has an ambitious target of 70 per cent of electricity from renewable sources by 2030. Although there has been less progress made on renewable sources in the heat and transport sectors, both these sectors are central to the Climate Action Plan: there is an ambitious target to electrify mobility with 950,000 electric vehicles by 2030; and an equally ambitious target to deliver 600,000 renewable energy heating sources in homes and 25,000 in commercial premises. The out-workings of the Plan will see a surge in renewable energy development over the next decade. The 2020 Irish Renewable Energy Summit will look at the practical implications of the Climate Action Plan to 2030 and how renewables will develop across electricity, heat and transport.
Transition to a renewables-led energy system
The 2020 Irish Renewable Energy Summit will look at where Ireland is in terms of delivering renewable energy to meet its climate commitments. We are in many ways starting the second phase of development, with the first phase being mostly focused on onshore wind. The summit will focus on the key elements of the next phase:
- Decarbonising electricity, meeting the 70% target
- Power-to-gas: Linking renewable electricity and gas
- Heat in the City: renewable heat in buildings
- Copenhagen: 100% renewable gas by 2025
- Financing renewable energy projects
- Developing large scale bioenergy projects
The Renewable Energy Summit will provide a valuable opportunity to bring together the key stakeholders from across the energy sector, and those who interact with the energy sector to discuss how the contribution from renewable energy can be maximised and implemented most effectively. The objective is to create a genuine in-depth understanding of the alternative paths open to Ireland in increasing the contribution from renewable energy.

+200 attendees: Who you can expect meet :
The summit is attended by senior managers and decision makers in the renewable energy sector. Delegates come from right across the sector and the wider energy community with a contingent from overseas. Delegates will include:
- Chief Executives, directors and senior managers in the energy sector
- Policy makers and regulators
- Renewable energy developers
- Engineering and technical consultants
- Legal and financial advisors
- Planning and environmental professionals
- Equipment suppliers
- Large energy users
Key themes covered:
- Climate Action Plan and renewable energy policy;
- Implementation of RES-E;
- Next phase of onshore wind development;
- Developing Ireland’s offshore wind resources;
- Future grid to facilitate 70% renewables;
- Decarbonising the gas network with biomethane;
- Electrification of transport;
- Heat in the City: decarbonising heat.
The summit is structured in such a way to provide a high level of interaction between speakers and delegates. There will be plentiful opportunities for questions as well as discussion in each of the sessions. In the margins of the event there will also be ample scope for business development during the busy networking breaks which take place in our exhibition area.
There are a limited number of opportunities to become involved with this conference as an exhibitor. This is an excellent way for organisations to showcase their expertise and raise their profile with a key audience of senior decision makers from across Ireland’s renewable energy sector. This interactive conference provides an excellent opportunity for making contacts and networking.
