Where is Ireland with Renewable Energy?

Michael McDowell has recently claimed in The Irish Times that those proposing supremacy of renewable energy in Ireland are ‘pursuing irreconcilable goals’. Is he right, or are we on the cusp of a renewable energy revolution here? A lot of the cutting– edge work on this subject is being done at MaREI, the Research Centre for Energy, Climate and Marine research at UCC. Brian O’Gallchoir, Director of MaREI and Professor of Energy Engineering at UCC, will bring us right up to date on Ireland’s renewable energy capacity, both now and into the future.

The seating of this event is arranged in socially distant pods of two persons known to each other. Unfortunately due to extremely limited capacity we are unable to accommodate single bookings at this time.

This talk will be recorded and available on GIAF platforms to watch or listen at a later date.
