    Energy researchers from the ESRI and UCD’s Energy Institute will present a selection of their respective research providing an evidence base for climate change mitigation.

    This will be a half-day conference in the morning. More information and a link to register will be available soon on the ESRI website.

    Date: Tuesday, 17 September

    Time: TBC (AM)

  • The ENGINE model: Determining optimal development of the Irish electricity sector under different policy scenarios

    Desta Fitiwi will present the Electricity Network and Generation INvEstment (ENGINE) model that has been under development in the ESRI. The model can be used to answer different policy-related questions pertaining to the least-cost development of power systems in the island of Ireland and beyond. The presentation will also include insights from case studies on the whole island such as the best locations and quantities of electricity generation and transmission infrastructure under different policy scenarios (e.g. high datacentre rollout, north-south interconnector, high RES diversification, centralized vs decentralized RES development, storage, etc.).

    Date: Thursday, 14 March
    Time: 4PM - 5:30PM
    Location: ESRI, Whitaker Square, Sir John Rogerson's Quay, Dublin 2
