If you are looking for funding opportunities, come to this event to learn about national and European funding that supports sustainable energy research and innovation. You can hear about the SEAI National Energy Research, Development and Demonstration (RD&D) Funding Programme for 2023.

Or if you are looking for international collaboration, Horizon Europe may be the funding programme for you. With a budget of €95.5 billion for a seven-year period (2021-2027), Horizon Europe aims to boost sustainable development and competitiveness in the EU. Participation in European projects can create new opportunities and collaborations with industry, academia, public sector and community organisations around Europe.

2pm registration – 2:30pm start – 4pm Finish

This session will include presentations and feedback from active Registered One Stop Shops on the opportunities and challenges they experience delivering works under the highly subscribed One Stop Shop Service.

The session will explain the process of registering as a One Stop Shop and offer guidance on the key areas of focus and on how to present their businesses and embedded processes effectively.

SEAI also will outline how the scheme can operate alongside the delivery of non-energy related building works, explaining how One Stop Shops can work together with architects to deliver a successful deep retrofit project that incorporates extensions and similar.

Thursday 30th March, Minerva Suite, Ground Floor, RDS, Dublin 4

10:30am registration – 11am start – 1pm Finish

 

This session will provide an outline of the potential options for buildings based on a holistic whole building approach including technology and other non-fabric interventions.

 

While the there is a role for fabric in terms of reducing the efficiency of buildings existing heating and to further the viability of renewable heating alternative (such as heat pumps), it is not necessarily the only (or optimal) solution in all instances. The energy saving opportunities within heating systems is not limited to fabric interventions.

 

Furthermore the energy saving required to improve the viability of renewable heating within a building does not have to be limited to the heating.

 

If the overall energy reduction of a building is achieved, this is the overriding general concern of an owner or operator. Given the challenges posed by these standards, it is essential that a multifaceted approach is adopted across all contributors to a building’s energy use and emissions.

Wednesday, 29th March

Recently both the EXEED and SSRH support schemes were reviewed (Q1 2023). Changes have been made to both schemes which broaden the range and scope of support available. The changes will make the schemes more attractive to a range of applications while remaining unchanged in others. This session will recap on the benefits of both schemes and explain the new features in each.

 

Speakers:

Ray Langton

Jason Doherty

SEAI Business Team

This presentation will outline the benefits of BIM (Building Information Modelling) and the role it can play in all aspects of a building’s sustainability across its entire life span and beyond.

The winners of the 2023 Product of the Show will be presented with their awards.

What makes some households more likely than others to retrofit their home? How do people make decisions about the choice to invest in retrofitting? What number of people actively want to retrofit? Using insights from recent SEAI surveys and experiments, we will be answering these questions using tools from economics and psychology.

 

Speakers:

Daire McCoy + Behavioural Economics team

This session will offer an outline of the options for retrofit of buildings to become heat pump ready. It will review the practical variations of making a heat pump viable within an existing building. It will include scenarios where the traditional upgrading of fabric may not be a viable option. The differing technical and seasonal requirements of heating and domestic hot water systems will also be considered.

This session will cover an introduction to district heating – what, why, and how Ireland compares to other countries. It will describe how Geographic Information System (GIS) is being used to identify candidate areas for district heating deployment around Ireland. And it will include a case study on the Tallaght District Heating network.

Thursday 30th March

A high level look at the opportunities and challenges of the large scale roll out of PV. This session will take a practical look at the process and considerations for different types of photovoltaic (PV) installations.  It will cover the potential hurdles that may exist in the application of this technology. You can expect guidance and some case studies and lessons learned from this session.

The EV Dealership of the Year Award 2023 national winner presentation. The awards recognise excellence in dealerships in the promotion and encouragement of EV uptake.  

 

Four provincial winners will be announced on the 16th Feb 2023 and will be invited to attend the SEAI Energy Show.  The four will form the shortlist from which the national winner will be selected. 

This session will examine the trends and underlying drivers in energy use, including a sectoral review. It will also look at progress towards Government and EU renewable energy targets.

A look at the targets and challenges of indoor air quality and energy efficiency in the area of ventilation.

This briefing will provide an update on the changes to the EPBD (Energy Performance of Buildings Directive). It will focus on the new requirements in line with EPBD Recast and how it might impact your sector.

A showcase of the winners of this year’s Product of the Show Awards.

This session will cover an introduction to district heating – what, why, and how Ireland compares to other countries. It will describe how Geographic Information System (GIS) is being used to identify candidate areas for district heating deployment around Ireland. And it will include a case study on the Tallaght District Heating network.
