IMR celebrates EU Sustainable Energy Week

IMR celebrates EU Sustainable Energy Week

Join us in this innovation journey towards meeting energy and climate goals 


As part of European Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW), Irish Manufacturing Research (IMR) has joined forces with partners to deliver three impactful events during May and June, exploring and inspiring industries and stakeholders to transform their relationship with energy. These initiatives seek to promote clean energy, energy efficiency, and foster innovation in pursuing sustainable energy practices.

European Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) is the biggest event dedicated to renewables and efficient energy use in Europe. The 2023 theme is ‘Accelerating the clean energy transition -towards lower bills and greater skills’. As part of the lead up to the EUSEW, Energy Days are held from March to June 2023, featuring sessions of diverse formats and durations that delve into a wide range of energy-related topics.

IMR’s events celebrating EU Sustainable Energy Week are a significant step towards fostering behavioural changes and driving innovation in the energy sector. By encouraging industries and stakeholders to embrace sustainable practices, the aim is to achieve the ambitious energy and climate goals set by the European Union and beyond.

Mullingar Energy Master Plan. The Mullingar Energy Master Plan (EMP) was created to provide a comprehensive overview of energy consumption and energy generation in the Mullingar area. It provides a baseline of sectorial (domestic, business, industrial) energy usage, current energy sources and energy-related CO2 emissions.

The Plan also identifies potential alternative energy sources and recommends ways to save energy. Part of the EMP is a Register of Opportunities (RoO) for the reduction of energy demand in both domestic and non-domestic buildings and the transition to renewable energy supply.
