The Energy Show which is now in its tenth year is taking place on Wednesday 14th and Thursday 15th April in the RDS, Main Hall, Dublin and we’ve got our tickets already.  We have visited this event in the past and as usual the SEI are planning another great show.  There are exhibitors from a vast range of sectors that can help reduce the engery use and therefore the energy cost.

SEI Grants

Sustainable Energy Ireland have a great little gadget that I picked up recently at the Ideal Homes Show at the RDS in Dublin, its about the size to a post card and it reads the tempreature in your home.


The idea being if its too hot then reduce the temperature, if its too cold have your home assessed to have it insulated or have your heating system upgraded.  SEI can help on that front also with grants available for some of these types of work to be carried out.  For further information check out the site at this link



CHP the new buzzword on the energy front.

This is the next big thing on the energy saving front for the retail sector, office, educational instituations and any premises with large energy use.
CHP is for combined heat and power and has already been rolled out. There is a grant available and the balance is tax-deductable. The unit has an average payback of between 3 and 5 years. This initiative is supported by the SEI, Sustainable Energy Ireland.

Solar Panels

Why not have solar panels fitted to both help reduce the cost of energy and to heat your water.  There are a vast number of styles and types of panel on the market at the moment and most are suitable for the Sustainable Energy Ireland grants. Further details on grants available can be found here. 

Before renovating an old house check out the grants which are available, as in most cases when having solar panels fitted a new water tank/cylinder is required or comes as part of the equipment, so before you fit a new water tank you could save yourself time and effort and find a grant covers all or some of the labour costs.

Energy Show 2009 to demonstrate Ireland’s Green Economy in action

Ireland’s largest ever trade fair for the sustainable energy sector will see almost 150 Irish and international exhibitors  and over 4000 Irish energy professionals descend on Dublin’s RDS on April 29th and 30th. The annual two day trade exhibition is organised by Sustainable Energy Ireland (SEI) for the purposes of encouraging trade and networking between businesses and professionals in the sector as well as the sharing of expertise, new thinking and innovation in the areas of energy efficiency and renewable technologies. According to Professor J Owen Lewis, Chief Executive SEI; “The show is a very tangible demonstration of Ireland’s ‘Green Economy’ in action.”

We are planning on attending this event and finding some innovative ideas and technologies which we can put to use for our clients at this show.”

Originally held in 1996, the Energy Show has grown significantly in recent years and is now firmly established as the national showcase for the sustainable energy sector. The event attracts a diverse array of exhibitors and visitors, not just from Ireland but from across Europe. While visitors attending the show come from a wide ranging background, the event is specifically aimed at businesses or individuals with a professional interest in or responsibility for energy use.

The Energy Show will showcase the most up to date technologies as well as providing professional advice and guidance from qualified persons operating at the forefront of areas such as Low Carbon Design, Energy Management, Combined Heat and Power (CHP), Electric Vehicles, PV and Solar Thermal Energy. This will make it a unique and invaluable source of information for anyone with an interest or involvement in the area of sustainable energy.  This will prove to be a valuable event for our business and that of our customers.
