Welcome to WEI 2022 Offshore Conference

 It is time to declare our energy independence.

Ireland’s offshore wind energy potential is what gives us the very real opportunity to have a zero-carbon electricity system by 2035, to become a global leader in the fight against climate change and to achieve, for the first time in our history, true energy independence.

Russia’s brutal invasion of Ukraine and the response from the European Union to accelerate the development of renewable energy has transformed the political and economic context. Irish families and businesses are counting the cost of our reliance on imported fossil fuels every time a bill arrives.

But building a secure electricity system that will run on zero-carbon energy means achieving our offshore ambitions by rising to meet one of the biggest infrastructural challenges in the history of the State.

If we are to become energy independent, not just in Ireland but in Europe, we will require a concerted, consistent, accelerated and properly resourced effort across Government, key state bodies and industry.
