Taking place on the 25th and 26th October 2017 in Kilkenny, the inaugural Energy Now Expo Ireland has been designed to introduce Irish farmers and landowners to the benefits and cost-savings that can be derived from renewable technologies.

Created by Renewable Energy Events Ltd, the two-day event is expected to attract over 1,500 visitors, who will meet with companies in the renewables sector including VG Energy, Hegan Biomass, the Solar Planet Team, Biotech Energy Systems and many more. 

In addition to visiting the stands of 70 plus exhibitors, farmers and landowners can attend the Energy Now Expo Ireland Conference, which will feature a stellar line-up of experts, delivering the latest information on developments in the Irish renewable energy sector.

Ireland is considered as one of the most promising European markets for renewables in the years ahead, especially as we approach 2020, when Ireland has a target of producing at least 16% of its energy from renewable sources,” comments David Jacobmeyer, Event Director of Energy Now Expo Ireland.

David continues: “Ireland has an abundance of natural resources that are well-suited to renewable technologies, and with price volatility, climate change and security of supply as key concerns for economic growth, sustainable technology offers a viable solution to reducing the country’s dependence on imported energy.

“New Government subsidies, coupled with price reductions in renewables technology, have made renewable technology a very attractive option for landowners, who can reduce their reliance on fossil fuels, whilst diversifying their income streams from the generation of clean energy.

From subsidies to outlining the benefits of various technologies, and hearing first-hand from farmers who have already incorporated green technologies, visitors to Energy Now Expo Ireland will gain insight into how they can increase income, decrease energy bills and reduce

Conference speakers include James Murphy from the Irish Farmers’ Union, Barry Caslin from Teagasc, Michael McCarthy from the Irish Solar Energy Association and PJ McCarthy from the Renewable Gas Forum Ireland. Over the two days seminars topics will include ‘Finance and the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)’, ‘Living with renewables’, ‘Selling the power you produce’ and ‘The future of grid services and the role of energy storage’.

David Jacobmeyer adds: We have worked hard to ensure there’s a wealth of renewable technologies on display at our inaugural show. Ireland already has a solid on-shore wind resource, and at our event, in addition to wind technology, we’ll be featuring Biomass, Heat Pumps, Solar, AD & Biogas and Hydropower.

“We’re hoping that visitors will leave the event with an understanding of how sustainable technologies can benefit their farms and land, what grants are available, and how by investing in green technologies, they can save thousands of euro on their utility costs.”
