What’s involved?

In this event, we will share the findings of the study they carried out into grid availability in county Wexford. In order to develop a renewable energy project, there must be capacity in the electricity grid to take the power you produce. A study was recently carried out to determine where the greatest opportunity for community renewable energy may be. Mullan Grid Consulting is an electrical engineering consultancy specialising in the grid connection and electrical design of renewable generators. Mullan Grid compiled the Grid Study that will be discussed.

The workshop will look at the various steps and considerations a community must take in the development of a renewable energy project. In this session, BioXL will speak on key development tasks in renewable energy projects. This session will be presented by Tom Bruton of BioXl, an energy consultancy with expertise in renewable energy.
