2022 Offshore Conference

21 & 22 September 2022

O'Reilly Hall, UCD, Dublin

It is time to declare our energy independence.

Ireland’s offshore wind energy potential is what gives us the very real opportunity to have a zero-carbon electricity system by 2035, to become a global leader in the fight against climate change and to achieve, for the first time in our history, true energy independence.

Russia’s brutal invasion of Ukraine and the response from the European Union to accelerate the development of renewable energy has transformed the political and economic context. Irish families and businesses are counting the cost of our reliance on imported fossil fuels every time a bill arrives.

But building a secure electricity system that will run on zero-carbon energy means achieving our offshore ambitions by rising to meet one of the biggest infrastructural challenges in the history of the State.

If we are to become energy independent, not just in Ireland but in Europe, we will require a concerted, consistent, accelerated and properly resourced effort across Government, key state bodies and industry.


This two day conference will take place from 21-22 September with a Gala Dinner on the evening of 21 September.

Research Poster

Research at WEI’s Offshore Conference 

Building on the success of our inaugural Research Poster Room at WEI’s Annual Conference in April 2022, Wind Energy Ireland is proud to announce details of our latest research initiative. On the 21st and 22nd September, members of our fast-growing offshore renewables industry will descend on UCD, Dublin for the WEI Offshore Conference. Across the 2 days, we are delighted to showcase two research and academic outreach events, presenting undergraduate students and early-stage researchers with a unique opportunity to present their work and engage with key industry stakeholders.

Supporting research – by popular demand, we have created  dedicated research sessions at the conference, “Research Thesis in Three”, where students will pitch their research thesis or project to our audience and a panel of judges. A winning pitch will be selected by our panel of judges, with a prize presented to the winning entry on the main stage.

Supporting a growing industry – in addition to the research pitches, we are delighted to offer all applicants the prospect of receiving a complimentary day pass to the Offshore Conference. We see this as a core part of delivering on the new WEI strategy and the need to bring more people into the sector. And it couldn’t be more fitting, with the event taking place in UCD!
