The Energy Systems Integration Partnership Programme (ESIPP) aims to address some of the leading energy challenges required to decarbonise our energy system. ESIPP, the flagship project of the UCD Energy Institute, brings together a multidisciplinary team from 5 research institutions, along with our industry partners, to tackle these challenges.
The annual UCD ESRI Energy Policy Research Conference will take place on Thursday 24th September. This year the event will be a half day event and will take place online. We are delighted to have Minister Eamon Ryan (Minister for Climate Action, Communication Networks and Transport) to open the event and look forward to a series of interesting presentations from researchers in both ESRI and UCD Energy Institute.

ESIPP researchers Vanja Medugorac, Dr. Aparajita Banerjee and Dr. Geertje Schuitema followed the closure announcements of the Lough Ree Power Station in Lanesborough - Ballyleague, and the impacts on the peat-extraction business of Bord na Móna. The researchers visited the community and spoke to many workers and community members to gather preliminary information about these developments in the Midlands area. The aim of this research was to explore what people in the Lanesborough - Ballyleague community think about recent energy-related developments in their community. A brief report from the survey findings is available at the following link:
