Venue: ESRI, Whitaker Square, Sir John Rogerson’s Quay Dublin 2
The energy system in Ireland and globally is undergoing a transformation as it becomes decarbonised and increasingly integrated across sectors and markets. This workshop presents recent research carried out by UCD Energy Institute and the ESRI in relevant policy areas relating to future electric power systems, sustainable energy communities, new energy technologies, residential energy efficiency, and energy markets. It should prove useful to those involved in the energy sector from government, industry and academia dealing with the challenges of the future energy system.
