Community Energy: Its role in the future of NI’s energy system.

Wednesday 21 October 2020 - 21/10/20

Online

 

Action Renewables Energy Association’s final webinar in the series, it will focus on Community Energy and the role it plays in the future of Northern Ireland’s energy system. We have a fantastic line–up of speakers, showcasing local community energy groups and discussing the potential impact of energy projects Girona and Handiheat.

Discover how energy projects will allow local communities to access cheaper energy and improved energy efficiency options, bring social and economic benefits to local areas and encourage overall citizen participation in our energy transition.

Make sure to FOLLOW Action Renewables and get notified about all upcoming events in 2020.

Speakers:

Lúgh O’Braonain, Research Director at Energy Co–operatives Ireland and Lead Researcher in INTERREG project SEAFUEL.

Topic “ Hydrogen Islands SEAFUEL deployment scenarios: Putting the Carbon Economy to one side”.
Lúgh O Braonain is the Research Director at Energy Co–operatives Ireland (ECI) and is currently leading research on the INTERREG EU project SEAFUEL, a research program looking at the feasibility of Hydrogen as a renewable energy generated transport fuel in island communities in the coastal region of Europe. Lúgh has produced comissioned feasibility reports into Hydrogen deployment on Irish islands and he leads ECI’s participation in IDEAS, a Horizon 2020 programme surrounding novel technology solutions for energy efficiency in buildings.
Using the ongoing work of the SEAFUEL project, Lúgh will discuss the three island scenarios that demonstrate the varying levels of opportunity for H2 transport fuel alongside H2 projected production, storage and distribution business models. He will also outline the three levels of hydrogen technology readiness for transport and non–transport applications including benefit stacking and a multi–stakeholder approach.
