The ESIPP Research Symposium for 2018 will take place on Thursday 25th October in Astra Hall, UCD. The focus will be on sharing our research in the area of energy systems integration with interested stakeholders. Please see below for more details. If you would like to be added to our mailing list to find out more, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
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. The production of energy, on which we are all reliant, results in significant emissions and it is essential that these emissions are reduced in order to achieve our climate change obligations. However, the use of substantial amounts of energy is necessary to maintain our high standard of living. 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 focus of this symposium will be on unlocking the potential of energy users in this transition. The format of the day will include:
A series of talks covering some of the research currently underway in ESIPP, with particular focus on different energy end users from large scale industrial users to residential.
A panel session providing insights from industry representatives directly engaging with energy users.
An overview of all of the ongoing ESIPP research and an opportunity to interact with the ESIPP researchers at a poster session. Areas covered include:
-Climate and Weather
-Residential and Commercial Buildings
-Market structures – incentives and risks

Job Title: UCD Research Fellow
College: UCD College of Engineering and Architecture
School: UCD School of Chemical and Bioprocess Engineering
Contract Type: Temporary
Closing Date: 31ST MAY 2018
Applications are invited for a UCD Research Fellow in the UCD School of Chemical and Bioprocess Engineering. This is a temporary post.
Energy is a strategic institutional priority for UCD, manifest most obviously by the establishment of UCD’s Energy Institute, which brings together Individuals and Schools from across the University to Collaborate their research efforts on the multifaceted area which is Energy Systems. Energy systems have evolved over decades from individual energy devices and small sub- systems into a complex set of systems, both physical, institutional and at all scales.
The Energy Systems Integration Partnership Programme (ESIPP) is a co-funded research project of €11m between Science Foundation Ireland, industry and philanthropic donation, which aims to further strengthen industry research links and to facilitate maximum societal impact. The successful applicant will contribute specifically to ESIPP’s Modelling Strand and it is expected that research findings and outputs will be published in leading international peer-reviewed journals. The candidate should have a background in modelling and optimisation, applied to energy systems with a strong knowledge of fundamental engineering principles that are driving the integrated energy system of the future.
Prior to application, further information (including application procedure) should be obtained from the UCD Job Vacancies website: http://www.ucd.ie/hr/jobvacancies.
The ESRI hosted a symposium on Risks in Integrated Energy Systems which took place on 6th March. The aim of this half-day symposium was to bring academia and industry together and discuss theoretical and practical issues of risks and finance in integrated energy systems. There was a great turnout for this event - thanks to all who attended. The slides are now available on the ESRI Website.

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
