The energy sector on the island of Ireland sits on the cusp of transformation. Climate change has begun to drive decarbonisation, digitisation will transform the management of consumption, while emergent technologies promise both demands on energy networks and great benefits.

To guide this transformation with a fresh vision the Department for the Economy has set out to develop a new Strategic Energy Framework for Northern Ireland post-2020.

On 11 September 2019, Chambré Policy Eye NI Events, in partnership with Cleaver Fulton Rankin, will host a landmark conference providing unique insights into the issues that need to be considered as the Department seeks to develop an energy vision for 2050.

With participation from senior officials from across the NI Civil Service, industry leaders and politicians this event promises an unparalleled opportunity to inform government thinking.

We hope you will take this opportunity to join us in the impressive surroundings of Titanic Belfast to learn about the options before us and share your perspective, helping to shape the future of energy in Northern Ireland.
