Empowering Change:

The Challenges and Opportunities for Ireland's Decarbonised Electrical Grid'

 

Two of the five “megatrends” that will shape our world over the course of this century are digitalisation and decarbonisation. The place these trends intersect is none other than a data centre.

 

On December 1 Host in Ireland hosted a live event,  “Empowering Change - The Challenges and Opportunities for Ireland's Decarbonised Electrical Grid” where we’ll explore the interconnected relationship between data, electricity and climate objectives.

We looked at how Ireland can leverage its experience as a centre of data excellence, become a world leader in decarbonising data and meet 2030 climate targets. Electricity and renewable energy experts shared how Ireland’s grid will need to be modernised over the coming decade.

 

Finally, we explored data as an economic driver and how its dependency on Ireland’s ageing electrical infrastructure creates both opportunities and challenges for a modern society.

Our panel discussion was moderated by Garry Connolly, and our guests  included:
Mark Foley, CEO of Eirgrid, Noel Cuniffe, CEO Wind Energy Ireland & Brian Ó Gallachóir, Professor of Energy Engineering, University College Cork & Director of SFI MaREI Centre.
