Commitment. Competence. Confidence. This CPD accredited seminar explores the paradigm shifts required for unlocking the potential of energy contracting. Join us at the SEAI Energy Show for this event.

About this event

1.30pm - 4pm, Thursday 28th March, Minerva Suite, RDS

Ireland needs a large scale investment programme across the public and private sectors to achieve its energy efficiency ambitions. SEAI considers energy contracting as a key tool to achieving this ambition but, to date, the Irish Market has been relatively small and a paradigm shift is required to unlock its potential. Through insights from international experts, local ESCOs, EPC facilitators and Senior Stakeholders, this event will investigate the role for energy contracting in enabling deeper investments of scale.
SEAI invites you to join us as we explore the key ingredients for successfully delivering energy contracting and the steps required to embed it as a pathway for energy efficiency in Ireland.
