Join us on June 8th as we chart Irelands progress and the opportunities within
Taking charge of a nation’s energy future empowers everyone from residents to industry to international business with confidence that local energy supplies are securely held within Ireland’s borders. The electricity system on the island is undergoing a transformation as a result of the growing integration of renewable energy and the implementation of broader technological innovation. Modernisation of the electricity grid provides a basis for future business and economic growth that benefits everyone. The electricity sector will play a key role in shaping a sustainable energy future for Ireland and Northern Ireland. Smart Grid developments are an important component of an overall solution for the integration of renewable generation.
Although its plan is ambitious, Ireland and Northern Ireland is demonstrating real commitment to a renewable future. On June 8th 23 experts will gather in Belfast to deliver their views on how the island will develop its renewable future and the opportunities that lie ahead for this emerging industry and its supply chain. Delegates will hear updates on policy, planning, technology, grid access, finance, project development and legal aspects of development.
Who should attend?
Analysts/Consultants, Environmental advisors, EPCs, Government/Energy policy makers, Installers, Inverter/Storage companies, Legal and financial advisers, Module suppliers, Planning consultants, R&D, Regulatory authorities, Utilities
Registration is open for the Solar Ireland one day conference.
This is a conference of substance with first class networking opportunities. Places are limited.
Each booking includes lunch, and refreshments.
Are there any opportunities left or has the solar PV industry in Northern Ireland had its day? Is there a market beyond refinancing and acquisition of existing renewables projects? What is the opportunity for large scale solar? What is the developer’s perspective? What of storage technology, how will it affect the potential for rooftop solar which is by and large unexploited in Northern Ireland? What are the challenges ahead in developing the solar market in Northern Ireland?
With one of the lowest deployment levels of solar PV in Europe, Ireland cannot be accused of early adopter advantage in solar PV. However with materials and equipment pricing at 80 percent less than a decade ago and a government with a renewables friendly agenda, this could be the perfect time for a solar PV revolution. But are the necessary support mechanisms required in place and what of the impacts on Ireland’s environmental and energy infrastructure.
