9th May 2022: SSE Airtricity has been announced as the official Energy Partner to the Dublin Climate Summit, which takes place this Thursday, 12th of May, at UCD’s O’Reilly Hall. The Dublin Climate Summit is leading-edge sustainability and climate-focused conference where investment, finance and policymaker leaders will meet to deliver net zero goals in business.
For 25 years SSE Airtricity has been a leader in driving Ireland’s green energy revolution and this event is closely aligned to the ethos of the company. The conference will hear from Wall Street investors, leading international speakers, global financiers, and decision-making green energy suppliers.
Klair Neenan, Managing Directory, SSE Airtricity said: “SSE Airtricity is delighted to be the official Energy Partner of the Dublin Climate Summit. This event speaks to a number of our values and to our vision of achieving net zero. The Dublin Climate Summit provides a perfect platform to underscore SSE being the UK and Ireland’s clean energy champion, and our commitment to delivering an ambitious £12.5bn capital investment plan to accelerate progress towards net zero.
“Airtricity was founded 25 years ago as a pioneer in green energy. The innovation and commitment to sustainability demonstrated then, are values that continue to drive our business and increasingly, our customers, too. It is fitting that we would celebrate 25 years by partnering with an event that aims to lead the conversation around green solutions that will support future generations.
“The event will host some of the leading organisations driving the climate change and green energy agenda in Ireland and internationally. As Ireland’s largest provider of 100% green energy and the first accredited one-stop-shop under the government’s National Retrofit Programme on the back of our Generation Green Home Upgrade SSE Airtricity has been at the forefront of helping businesses and individuals target net zero emissions.
“I look forward to participating and sharing our vision for net zero, and also hearing the first-hand experiences and insights of international organisations operating in this space.”
The second Dublin Climate Summit will be a hybrid event with delegates attending in-person and over 2,000 joining virtually on the day. Speakers at the event include: An Taoiseach Micheál Martin TD; Klair Neenan, Managing Director, SSE Airtricity; Paschal Donohoe, President of the Eurogroup; Catherine Martin T.D; Minister for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media; Kay Harrison, New Zealand Climate Change Ambassador; and Marcel Haag, Director for Horizontal policies, DG FISMA, European Commission.
