IWEA Annual 2020 Conference (old VAT rate)

21 - 24 September 2020

Registrations are closed
Our 2020 Annual Conference will now take place – virtually – over four days from Monday 21 September to Thursday 24 September, followed by a face-to-face social event on Friday 25 September.

Pivotal time
This year’s conference will take place at a pivotal time for our industry. Wind energy provided almost half of our electricity in the first three months of the year so we are on course to reach our 2020 renewable electricity target.
And soon our 4.2 GW onshore will be joined by a growing number of offshore projects as the Government moves ahead with consultations on planning and grid while underlining its commitment to offshore wind in the new Programme for Government.

That promise to reduce our carbon emissions by an average of 7 per cent a year to 2030 puts wind energy at the heart of Ireland’s energy transformation. But promises need to be followed through. Our Annual Conference will bring together Ireland’s key energy decisionmakers and some of the most insightful international guests to discuss how we ensure the promise made by our new Government to the Irish people can be fulfilled.

Virtual Conference
This year our conference will be very different as we are going virtual to ensure we are doing everything we can to prevent Covid transmission. But going virtual gives us the opportunity to organise more sessions to better cater to your interests, to make the conference a more interactive experience, to more easily bring in international experts to share their thoughts with you and Ireland’s other leading energy experts.

How can we reform the planning system to develop projects more quickly? What will an energy market look like with 70 per cent renewables? Will we be able to cut levels of constraints and curtailment? And what can we learn from the first RESS auction? How do we make 30 GW of wind energy for Europe a reality? Be a part of finding the answers.

Early bird tickets are now on sale until 13th August, thereafter normal rates apply.
