Accelerating Ireland’s energy transition: Energy Ireland 2024, May 22-23, Croke Park, Dublin

Energy Ireland is Ireland’s No 1 energy conference and is generally recognised as such throughout the sector. This year will be the 28th year the event has taken place and it comes at a pivotal time in the energy transition.

There is radical change right across all aspects of the sector from accelerating renewable energy, the electrification of transport and heat, decarbonisation of the gas grid and a renewed focus on energy security.

Energy Ireland 2024 will bring together all the key stakeholders in the Irish energy sector to discuss and debate the key drivers of the energy transition and energy security. Ireland’s main energy conference will look at the developments that will decarbonise Ireland’s increasingly integrated energy system.
