The Irish Renewable Gas Conference will take place on September 7, 2023, at the Gibson Hotel, Dublin, it has been announced. 

The Irish energy sector is undergoing a transition to a low carbon future. Although much of the focus to date has been on electricity, there is now a need to move the focus towards the transition of Ireland’s natural gas network to low and zero carbon gas sources. There are an emerging number of elements to the decarbonisation of the natural gas infrastructure including biomethane and green hydrogen.

Energy Ireland, in partnership with Gas Networks Ireland, will hold a highly insightful interactive conference on the future of renewable gas in Ireland, involving key stakeholders across the energy sector.

The objective of the conference is to give delegates a genuine in-depth understanding of the developments in the gas sector and to investigate potential options for decarbonising Ireland’s natural gas infrastructure.

An expert panel of local and visiting experts will look at issues including:

  1. GNI’s strategy to decarbonise its network
  2. The potential for biomethane production in Ireland
  3. Biomethane injection into the gas network
  4. The future role of green hydrogen
  5. The potential for gas storage in Ireland
