Join us on june 21 as we chart PLACE progress and the opportunities within

In summary: Ireland is highly dependent on imported fossil fuels. As 2020 approaches, the pressure is on the Irish Government to ensure the country meets its renewable energy targets of 16 percent of all energy generated from renewable sources.

Due to the lack of development in the transport and heat sectors, the renewables must contribute more to achieve the overall objective of reducing CO2 emissions. Ireland is motivated to embrace solar as wind alone will not enable the country to achieve its targets. The new Apple data centre in Galway will have a demand three times the size of Intel, which has been the largest user of electricity in the country. Data centres and foreign direct investment are leading the way by ensuring that large portions of their energy demand comes from renewable sources and have contracted with large energy suppliers through PPAs.

Another avenue for these larger energy users is a direct connection between these plants and solar projects, which is currently prohibited under current Irish legislation. This connection method is successfully used in Northern Ireland, where Belfast Airport is now connected directly to a nearby solar farm. If this type of arrangement be implemented in Ireland, many more projects and sites could be realised. In addition, this would reduce pressure on the national electricity grid by allowing large-demand customers to reduce their requirement to import energy from the grid network and produce on-site or nearby electricity.

Ireland is now in a unique position to take advantage of solar technology. Following the publication of the Government’s White Paper on Energy, there is now a realistic expectation that solar energy will be supported in Ireland and soon. What of Northern Ireland, how does it move forward post subsidy, does further solar success lie with the PPAs? How can Northern Ireland take advantage of its neighbour’s new business?

Get ready: Join us in Belfast on June 21 to discuss policy, planning, regulation, finance, technology developments, O&M and storage. Hear from 20 + speakers from across the supply chain in Ireland and UK and understand the opportunity for your company.

Ireland is motivated and ready for solar. Are you?
