ESIPP and the UCD Energy Insitute will be hosting a workshop on Ireland's Future Hydrogen Economy to identify potential areas of research under the SFI Future Innovator Prize Sero Emissions Challenge. There are still limited spaces available. If you are working in this area and interested in attending the event please contact Eoin Syron (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The ESIPP Symposium 2019 will take place on Wednesday 11th December in the George Moore Auditoirum in the O'Brien Centre for Science in UCD.
Further information on the agenda and registration will be available in due course.
Congratulations to PhD student Ali Ekhtiari who is the inaugural recipient of the MacElroy Energy Research Bursary in the UCD School of Chemical & Bioprocess Engineering. Ali's research is focused on modelling the Gas Network, with special emphasis on the inclusion of renewable generated Hydrogen for the decarbonation of gas fueled home heating. For more information on Ali's research see the research page EUI7: Diversification of Gas End Use and Supply and the ESIPP Publications page.
The UCD Energy Institute has developed a paper highlighting how ongoing research aligns to the Climate Action Plan that was published in June. This plan sets out ambitious targets for Ireland in relation to decarbonisation for 2030 leading towards a net zero carbon position in 2050.
The paper highlights a number of different research activities ongoing in the Energy Institute.The UCD Energy Institute is well positioned to help achieve the Government strategy. The core of its expertise is in power systems and the integration of renewable generation onto the electricity grid. Through the SFI funded Energy Systems Integration Partnership Programme (ESIPP), this expertise has expanded to bring a whole of system approach which includes aspects of energy demand, forecasting and, crucially, social acceptance and consumer behaviour.
