Energy infrastructure and markets in a time of great uncertainty

The start of 2017 sees the rate of change continuing to accelerate and the prospect of Brexit promises to disrupt many sectors, not least the energy sector. The energy sector is now effectively an all-island business with a formal all-island market in electricity. The island of Ireland is also interconnected with the UK/Europe gas and electricity markets. The UK leaving the European Union will have a significant impact on energy policy in Northern Ireland.

The renewable energy sector also faces a time of transition. Most of the capacity to date has been delivered by onshore wind. There is now much uncertainty about the future of renewable energy in Northern Ireland. The North-South Interconnector project has still not been delivered and is the single most important energy infrastructure on the island.

With such uncertainty around renewables, infrastructure and markets agendaNi is planning a half day conference to examine these issues in details via an expert panel of local and visiting speakers.

Themes for discussion will include:

  • Impact of Brexit on Irish energy policy;
  • I-SEM: the new electricity wholesale market;
  • Future of renewables in Northern Ireland;
  • Delivering infrastructure in times of uncertainty.

The conference will bring together the key stakeholders in the energy sector to discuss the impact of Brexit including:

  • Energy policy-makers;
  • Regulatory authorities;
  • Government departments / agencies;
  • Energy sector executives;
  • Renewable energy developers;

  • Project developers;
  • Planning consultants and advisors;
  • Legal and financial professionals;
  • Energy consultants;
  • Local government officers and elected representatives;

  • Look at the future of renewables;
  • Have an opportunity to meet senior representatives from organisations across the sector.
