The Energy Systems Integration Partnership Programme (ESIPP) is a research programme which seeks to address some of the important challenges for energy systems of today and the future. As concerns relating to climate change continue to mount and the need to reduce our emissions grows, the way we use and source energy needs to change and evolve. In order to achieve the necessary improvements, a number of different solutions will be needed involving a wide range of stakeholders and participants, with these solutions often overlapping and interacting. This results in the need for Energy Systems Integration research which is the focus of this research programme.

The aim of this half-day symposium is to bring academia and industry together and discuss theoretical and practical issues of risks and finance in integrated energy systems.
Energy system integration (ESI) is the process of coordinating the operation and planning of energy systems across multiple pathways and geographical scales in order to deliver reliable, cost effective energy services with less impact on the environment. With the ongoing energy transition questions arise about what types of risks and uncertainties do market participants of integrated energy systems face and how can they manage them. These risks include price dynamics in fuel and carbon markets, declining costs of competing technologies, and uncertainties related to consumer demand and energy policy.
Location: The Economic and Social Research Institute, Whitaker Square, Sir John Rogerson’s Quay, Grand Canal Dock, Dublin 2

The ESIPP Symposium "Rethinking our Energy Future: Collaboration and Integration" took place on Thursday 30th November 2017. The event featured a keynote speech from Mark McGranaghan of EPRI, along with presentations and posters from the ESIPP team, and finished off with a panel discussion "Targets for 2030 and the role of ESI" which was moderated by Lisa Ryan. The presentations and posters are available below. The symposium was very well attended by academics and industry representatives. We would like to thank all who attended and look forward to welcoming you back to future events.
