Securing Irelands Energy Future

Pillsbury.jpg

We are thrilled you are interested in our upcoming Workshop to discuss the ever more critical subject of how to secure Irelands Energy future. 

The Workshop

Our 2 online, invite-only webinars will give an impartial and unbiased view of the pros and cons of modern nuclear energy as it might apply to Ireland. They will be addressed by speakers from a variety of backgrounds including politicians who have overseen nuclear energy development in their own countries and officials who have led on this development at both a national and international level. Senior figures from international energy agencies will address the technical aspects of energy policy in a way that is accessible to a non-technical audience.

Webinar 1 - Monday September 12th, 2pm to 3.30pm

Should Ireland consider nuclear energy?

What is the current status of Ireland's plan for a clean energy future? What are our future prospects in this area? Could nuclear energy realistically address shortfalls in these plans? Would nuclear energy be “worth the effort” in Ireland, or will “easier” alternatives be available?

Webinar 2 - Monday September 19th, 2pm to 3.30pm

How would we develop nuclear energy?

 

What would be needed to develop a nuclear sector here? What strengths already exist here? How would we identify and overcome the challenges, and what help would be available to us in that task? Could this be achieved in time to make a significant impact on our clean energy future?

We do hope you can join us in exploring the main issues involved in this important topic.

Why now? 

Nuclear energy has returned as a policy option in Britain, France, Belgium and The Netherlands, so should it now be evaluated again in Ireland as a potential option for our 2024 pathway to net zero energy?

Consider that, in Ireland:

  • We are already missing our emissions targets, and this is mainly due to an increase in energy-related emissions from coal and gas. 

  • We still don’t have noa Pathway for Net Zero energy and our prospects are tenuous in that regard.

  • We need to stem the dramatic rise in energy prices that is impacting businesses and households across the country.

How could Nuclear help?

Modern Nuclear energy generation based in Ireland could reduce and stabilise energy prices, improve our energy security and provide vital help in achieving net zero emission energy. 

 

Who is hosting the Webinars?

The webinar is being hosted by 18for0 with assistance from Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman, a leading global law firm with an industry focus on energy and a wealth of experience in nuclear energy. 18for0 is a voluntary group of professionals concerned about the credibility of current proposals to achieve net zero emissions in Ireland by 2050.
