Working towards and beyond sustainable energy systems

Ireland’s power generation industry is facing more change, at a faster pace, than ever before! In effect, a significant power revolution is taking place as policies and technologies change, energy and ICT converge and demand for sustainability, reliability and distributed resources accelerates. Such market disruption opens up major challenges and opportunities for policy makers, utilities and other energy stakeholders.

The National Power Summit 2018 is the definitive annual conference for the industry to discuss the main issues and strategies for transformation within the changing electricity industry landscape. The summit will feature keynotes sessions, panel discussion, debates, case studies and industry exhibits, from experts on policy, innovation, smart grids, energy transition and storage.

Building on the success of our previous Power, Energy and Smart Network events, the Sunday Business Post’s 2018 summit will focus on advanced distribution management systems, reliability and capacity, energy transition and the reprofiling of smart metering. It has been meticulously researched and designed to challenge, motivate and inspire all those concerned with energy innovation and power supply.
