Foyle Renewable Energy Showcase flyer

Date: Wednesday 17th April, 2019 POSTPONED
Time: 11.00am – 3.00pm

Venue: Brook Hall Estate, Wood Energy Visitors Centre

The Brook Hall Estate has long been a champion in sustainable and environmental conscious practice in business. Making it the ideal venue for our forthcoming ‘Integrated Renewable Energies Workshop’ event.

Join us on the 17th of April where researchers at Queen’s University Belfast (QUB) along with the Centre for Advanced Sustainable Energy (CASE) and industrial and other academic (Ulster and AFBI) champions of Renewable Energy Technology will present the developments in integrated renewable energy technology in Northern Ireland.

A case study for integrated renewable energy on the Brook Hall Estate will highlight the need, potential and future prospects of a micro-renewable energy network. In conjunction with the prospective developments of the Foyle River Gardens Project.

Along with presentations from other CASE funded projects, the workshop aims to be the catalyst for the development of combined renewable energy projects. Identifying synergies and collaborative opportunities at all scales of renewable energy integration.
