Energy Markets and Security Conference 2022


The conference will address the following issues:
  • • Gas market outlook
  • • Electricity price outlook
  • • What is the status of oil storage in Ireland?
  • • What are the opportunities to reduce energy demand [quickly]?
  • • How do we accelerate renewable energy sources?
  • • What role will interconnection play?
  • • Is there a future role for indigenous gas?
  • • Do we need gas storage and/or an LNG terminal?
  • • Will nuclear have a long term role in securing Ireland’s energy supply?



The economic rebound after the Covid-19 pandemic triggered a price spike for multiple commodities, including energy. The war in Ukraine has led to further increases in energy prices and security of supply concerns. The surge in energy prices is against the backdrop of the continuing transition to a net zero carbon energy system and a growing economy. Additionally, electricity security has come under the spotlight due to increasing demand from data centres which are forecast to account for nearly one quarter of electricity demand by 2030.
This conference will look at the drivers behind the rise in gas and electricity prices and examine the security of energy supply to the island and security of the electricity grid.
