  • Galway Energy Summit

    12th March 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
    NUIG. College of Engineering and Informatics - Galway - Ireland

    Details and Registration:


    The Galway Energy Summit is Irelands first ever student run energy summit which promotes discussion of sustainability, innovation and technology connecting students and industry. Last year, GES took place in the Bailey Allen ,NUIG. The event attracted over 450 delegates and partnered with 20 companies/organisations. These companies and organisations had a first-hand opportunity to connect with all delegates, engaging in meaningful discussion and promoting job opportunities in industry.

    In 2019, the Galway Energy Summit will be hosted in NUIG on Tuesday the 12th of March. The theme for the event will be “Changing for our Climate” with an additional focus on the role of the technology and innovation sector and how industry can help reach emission targets.

    On the day we will have two panel discussions . The first panel discussion is titled “Can technology Save us” . Here, some high profile representatives from industry will present about developing technologies which will reduce our carbon impact. Confirmed speakers for this talk are John Bryne (head of smart meter rollout in ESB) , Ian Kilgallon (Gas networks Ireland) and Russel Vickers - head of connected autonomous vehicles in Jaguar Landrover Ireland. The panel will be moderated by Kate Kerrane, former international student energy summit director.

    This will then be followed by our main panel discussion. Our main panel discussion is titled “Changing for our climate”. Speakers confirmed for this discussion are Dr. Cara Austenborg and Dr. Mary Greene who will both present on the environmentalist / social aspect on climate change, Dr. Paul Deane of MaREI Institute and Tom Short of the IFA. This discussion will be moderated by George Lee of RTE.

    After the discussions , a networking fair will take place. The networking fair will provide companies/organisations the opportunity to connect with all delegates and students.

    To end the Galway Energy Summit 2019 , our further networking event will be held in Buskers Browne’s located in Cross Street, Galway City. For this event we have linked up with Jameson whiskey who will supply a welcoming drink on arrival. The further networking event will be co-hosted by the Climate Cocktail club – Ray O’Neil and Tom Popple. The Climate Cocktail Club (CCC) is a networking platform for sustainability professionals who like cocktails. Founded by Tom and Ray for no other reason than to get to know and connect like-minded people over a drink or two. Initially launched in Dublin, CCC gathered the attention of would-be clubbers across Ireland and internationally. With new Chapters launched in Amsterdam, Cork, Colombo and London, and interest shown in Scotland, Sweden and beyond.

  • Net Zero Energy Buildings (NZEB)

    26th March 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
    Room IT3, Berkeley Centre, Building #9, Cork Institute of Technol

    Frank Mills (ASHRAE Distinguished Lecturer), Principal Practicing Consulting Engineer, Frank Mills Consulting LTD

    Topic: As building regulations around the world continue to impose energy targets in order to reduce carbon emissions and to conserve fossil fuels, designers and contractors must provide buildings which can perform successfully with less energy aiming for Net Zero. The EU requires all buildings to be Net Zero by 2019, excluding plug and process loads, whilst the ASHRAE Board have proposed Net Zero INCUDING plug and process loads by 2030. This presentation will provide attendees with an overview of the issues involved and the potential design solutions to achieve Net Zero in a cost effective, practical manner using feedback from exemplar solutions. New Zero strategies are proposed along with design tools, practical tips, and advice on suitable support information and case study examples.
