The 2020 Irish Renewable Energy Summit will provide a valuable opportunity to bring together the key stakeholders from across the energy sector to discuss how the contribution from renewable energy can be maximised and implemented most effectively.

To date renewable energy has been focused on the electricity sector with 40% of electricity generated from renewable sources.

The Climate Action Plan has an ambitious target of 70% of electricity from renewable sources by 2030.

Central to Climate Action Plan


Although there has been less progress made on renewable sources in the heat and transport sectors, both these sectors are central to the Climate Action Plan: there is an ambitious target to electrify mobility with 950,000 electric vehicles by 2030; and an equally ambitious target to deliver 600,000 renewable energy heating sources in homes and 25,000 in commercial premises.

The out-workings of the plan will see a surge in renewable energy development over the next decade.

The summit will look at the practical implications of the Climate Action Plan to 2030 and how renewables will develop across electricity, heat and transport.
