Ireland’s leading energy event returns to the RDS on Wednesday, April 18, and Thursday, April 19, 2018. The Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) Energy Show features 150 exhibitors of sustainable energy technologies and services.
The annual two-day free event is a must for those who want to network, learn, build business opportunities and experience the latest innovative technologies in the energy sector. Last year, more than 5,000 people attended the SEAI Energy Show and, according to exhibitors, more than €80 million worth of business was won at the 2017 show.
“The Irish market for sustainable energy solutions is set to reach €3 billion by 2020 as homeowners, businesses and communities move towards cleaner energy,” said Jim Gannon, CEO of SEAI.
“The SEAI Energy Show offers a unique opportunity to learn about technologies and services in the sustainable energy sector that can help improve the energy efficiency of our buildings, and you can find out about renewable sources of energy. The SEAI Energy Show is well established in the Irish calendar and it continues to be a key networking energy event, bringing together buyers, suppliers and speakers to showcase the latest energy innovations.”
