IWEA Annual 2020 Conference Ireland (21-24 September)

Aanvangsdatum: 21-Sep-2020
Capaciteit: (0% geboekt)


The Irish Wind Energy Association (IWEA) organizes their annual IWEA Conference this year from 21-24 September and will entirely take place online.

Wind Energy in Ireland
This years' conference takes place at a pivotal time for the wind industry. Wind energy provided almost half of the electricity in Ireland in the first three months of the year and Ireland is also on course to reach their 2020 renewable energy target. 

Soon the total installed capacity of 4.2GW onshore will be joined by a growing number of offshore projects as the Irish government moves ahead with consultations on planning and grid. In the new Programme for Government the 2030 target for offshore wind was raised from 3.5 to 5GW. This Programme promises to reduce the carbon emissions by an average of 7 per cent per year to 2030 and puts wind energy at the heart of Ireland's energy transformation. And this might only be the start, as the offshore wind potential off the Irish west-coast is calculated around 70GW. 

Ireland aims to build up their own offshore wind supply chain, but is facing considerable challenges in doing so, providing opportunities for Dutch wind energy companies to work together with the Irish. 

Conference Agenda
The IWEA Conference brings together Ireland's key energy decisionmakers and some of the most insightful international guests to discuss how Ireland can ensure the promise made by the Irish government can be fulfilled. 

Please see this link for the agenda of the conference (the full agenda will become available in the coming weeks).

'Offshore Wind: the Dutch Experience' Conference session
Together with the Netherlands Embassy in Dublin and the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO), Holland Home of Wind Energy (HHWE) will organize a (virtual) break-out session at the IWEA Conference on Wednesday September 23 from 15:00 to 16:15pm CEST. Purpose of this session is to offer a glimpse of the experience and added value of the NL offshore wind industry and will elaborate on the current state of affairs of the offshore wind developments in the Netherlands and the experience and strenghts of the Dutch offshore wind sector.

Speakers: Pieter Wijnmaalen (Boskalis: EPCI contractor), Wilfred van Bergen (IV Offshore & Energy: engineering foundations, substations, FPSO), Ruud de Bruijne (Dutch government).
Target audience: Irish companies looking for international partnerships in offshore wind, government institutions and financial institutions. 

Offshore wind Dutch companies have an extensive track record in offshore wind installation and have contributed to almost all European offshore wind projects. Partnerships and cooperation have been key to this success. How can Dutch companies contribute to the development of the local Irish supply chain? In recent years the Dutch government developed a solid long term government policy in offshore wind and achieved enormous cost reduction by mitigating the risks for developers. What is the secret of this success?
