About The Event
The Future of Gas Infrastructure in Ireland

This one-day conference, delivered as part of The Road to 2050 series, looks at the role of gas and its associated infrastructure, in the future energy mix of Ireland from now to 2050 and beyond.

Building on the Irish Government’s Energy White Paper ‘Ireland’s Transition to a Low Carbon Energy Future’, we’ll be exploring:

• The role that low carbon gases could play in decarbonising the gas network

• The practicalities of injecting low carbon gas into the existing network

• And the effects of variable gas quality on the supply chain. 

IGEM President, Sheila Lauchlan will be delivering the keynote address, charting the lessons learnt during the UK’s transition to a low carbon future to date. 

Event sponsor, Gas Networks Ireland will cover the development of a Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) infrastructure in Ireland plus details of a number of forthcoming projects aimed at adding renewable sources of gas to the grid.
 
We’re also bringing together a host of case study projects from across the UK and Ireland covering: CNG refuelling stations, biogas, bioSNG, floating LNG, and hydrogen networks to name but a few.
