Virtual Conference: 10th MaREI Climate & Energy Research Seminar

The theme for this year's MaREIs Climate & Energy Policy Research Seminar is Energy Security and covers topics related to supply issues, behavioural response/distributional issues, as well as, the linkages to climate action. The seminar builds on a strong history of collaboration between UCC and the ESRI, with both institutions now partners in the SFI MaREI Centre for Energy, Climate and Marine.
