All-Island Virtual Conference

26th & 27th November


IWEA and RenewableNI are delighted to announce that the registration for our all-island offshore and onshore conference is now open.
The island of Ireland is already a leader in renewable electricity but over the next decade our shared ambition, and our determination, must grow even greater.
Recognising the different challenges on either side of the border we must find new ways to co-operate, to plan, to work together to build our shared energy future – an island which safely and securely relies on renewable energy to power our homes, our businesses and our communities.
At our conference on 26 and 27 November leaders in the renewable energy industry and policymakers from both jurisdictions will show how  – together – we can rise to the challenge of building a decarbonised energy system, a clean green energy future well worth sharing.
On Day 1 of the conference, we will be taking a look at the progress being made for offshore wind energy in the Republic of Ireland, as well as discussing how to kick-start the development of offshore wind in Northern Ireland early this decade. We will also be investigating how the electricity grid across the island and into Europe needs to develop in order to maximise onshore and offshore renewables domestically.
On Day 2 of the conference, we will be assessing how various routes to market for renewables North and South are progressing, as well as looking into how the electricity market needs to evolve to accommodate 70% renewable electricity and offshore renewables. We will conclude the event with a look into the future and the role that electricity will play in the transition to a low carbon island out to 2050.
