Sustainable Energy Ireland (SEI) is expecting the 177 businesses
exhibiting at this year’s Energy Show - taking place 16th
and 17th April at the RDS Dublin - to transact up to €30 million
worth of business during the two days of the show.
Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources,
Eamon Ryan, TD opened the eighth annual Energy Show, which
is now Ireland’s most established showcase for businesses
in the sustainable energy sector.
Ireland’s sustainable energy sector has grown considerably
in recent years, with recent research conducted by SEI showing
that four out of five Irish businesses believe that the market
for climate friendly goods and services represent an opportunity
for Irish business.
The theme of this year’s Show is ‘Meeting Ireland’s Energy
Challenge’ and the Show’s extensive seminar programme
has been specifically tailored to facilitate debate and transfer
of knowledge within the sector on how this challenge can be
met from a practical perspective. This includes discussions
on the design and construction of energy-efficient buildings,
developments in industrial equipment, renewable energy solutions
for large buildings and energy management in organisations.
The speaker panel for the seminars includes both Irish and
Commenting, David Taylor, Chief Executive, Sustainable Energy
Ireland said - “Companies exhibiting here today - as well
as the many visitors we expect to attend this year’s Show
- are all playing an important role in the development of
a strong market for sustainable energy-related products and
services in Ireland. This will, ultimately, serve to allow
Ireland to meet its energy targets as well as easing the burden
of over-dependency on imported fossil fuels.”
SEI expects in the region of 3,000 energy professionals from
Ireland and abroad to attend the event over the two days.
Attendees typically include building design and development
professionals, energy users from business, industry and the
public sector as well as energy suppliers and providers.
Similar events are held throughout Europe, where the sustainable
energy sector is also experiencing rapid growth and SEI has
welcomed 22 exhibitors from outside Ireland to this year's
Show. The range and diversity of the Show’s exhibitors has
again expanded and visitors will have the added benefit of
being able to hear the latest advice and guidance from an
added number of professionals operating at the forefront of
areas such as Combined Heat and Power (CHP), Energy Management,
Biomass, PV and Solar Thermal Energy.
The 2008 Energy Show runs until 6 pm on 16th April and from
9am to 5pm on 17th April at the RDS Main Hall in Ballsbridge,
