Energy Cork was delighted to host our annual conference – Decarbonising Cork – Energy Security through Climate Action in Cork on 17th November 2022 at the River Lee Hotel, Western Road, Cork.
Though the priorities of energy policy – security, sustainability and affordability – have not changed, and the need to mitigate climate change is more pressing than ever, our energy landscape has altered considerably in just a few months. In particular, events in Ukraine have forced everyone in Europe to reconsider how we can achieve our energy priorities and manage current vulnerabilities.
The sold-out Decarbonising Cork conference, featuring 15 speakers and panellists, across a number of topic sessions discussed these and other matters.
Where available, presentations from speakers at the Conference are available by following the link below.
The Energy Cork Cluster runs a range of networking and informative events for members and stakeholders.
We organise a regular series of Lunchtime Briefings covering a wide range of energy and climate action topics. These events often showcase a particular aspect of the sector, a Cork-based company or a development of interest to our members in Cork.
Additionally, Energy Cork delivers an annual Conference on an important energy sector topic. In March 2021, we held a conference on Energy and the Circular Economy.
You can view complete recordings of all of our recent events by following the link below.
Our events would not be possible without the support of our speakers, sponsors and the fundamental support of Cork City County and Cork County Council Economic Development Funds.
The complete conference is available for viewing now in our Resources section.
Energy Cork is an industry-driven cluster pursuing coordinated actions to strengthen enterprise and employment within the energy sector in the Cork region. Supported by Cork City Council and Cork County Council through their respective Economic Development Funds, Energy Cork was conceived by Cork Chamber with a view to building on the unique opportunities for the region to secure competitive advantage in the energy sector.
Energy Cork is membership-led. It is through the enthusiasm and expertise of our members that we make things happen.
The energy industry is evolving at a rate of knots and Energy Cork plays a key role in bringing together all stakeholders in the region together in a dynamic and interactive forum.
I am very pleased to have been involved in Energy Cork since its inception. A diverse group of interests are brought together to advance a number of ideas to raise the profile and potential of the energy sector in the Cork area and beyond, and a lot has been achieved in a short period of time. I find the breakfast briefings and conferences particularly useful, and would encourage the wider Cork community to get involved in this laudable initiative.
One of the pillars of the Energy Cork cluster is networking. This is the place where energy professionals, businesses and stakeholders meet, exchange ideas and turn ideas into action. Joining Energy Cork positions your business at the heart of the energy sector in the region.
Energy Cork has a suite of current projects, as well as completed activities. Our projects are typically completed in cooperation with members and other stakeholders and are focussed on achieving results in our priority areas.
Energy Cork is engaged with local and national policy makers on a range of energy sector policy developments. From national energy policy to local development plans, Energy Cork helps to design and implement policy relevant to our members and stakeholders.
From large conferences to one-on-one networking events, from technology focus to regional development, Energy Cork designs and runs bespoke, valuable events for its membership and the wider energy sector. We attract the best local and international speakers to address topics of importance to the regional and the sector.
