The Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland’s (SEAI) Energy Show 2014 takes place at the RDS in Dublin on Wednesday 12th and Thursday 13th March. The annual two-day business event, which sees more than 150 companies exhibit at the Show, is the key energy showcase in the Irish calendar – a must for hoteliers and those in the hospitality industry who want to be up to speed on the latest energy saving solutions.
The Energy Show, now in its fourteenth year, will feature a trade exhibition presenting leading suppliers of sustainable energy products and services for businesses. As in previous years, the Show will feature seminars where professionals can learn how to maximise energy savings for their business.
This year, the seminars will include a session on ‘How to Maximise Efficiency in Complex Facilities’, with a particular focus on high occupancy buildings such as Terminal 2 Dublin Airport and Stewarts Hospital. A master-class in managing building operations, facilitated by Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) and DIT, will look at the cost-optimal balance between the investments involved and the energy costs saved.

Another practical seminar will look at ‘Free Energy through Innovative Heat Recovery Practices’. Many businesses are now seeking to improve their energy performance by tackling more technically challenging energy efficiency upgrades and one area generating a lot of interest at the moment is heat recovery. Whether looking at service or process upgrades, the evidence is that there are significant benefits from the application of heat recovery. These including cost savings, more sustainable business practices and improving competitiveness. Further detail on seminars is available at www.seai.ie/energyshow.
The Energy Show has grown in recent years to include many features such as live retrofit demonstrations, networking opportunities with international markets and the Product of the Show Awards. This year’s Show will see an extended best practice skills area to include heating, ventilation and heat recovery technologies, as well as insulation solutions. Visitors will also have access to even more international markets with scheduled networking sessions with France, Britain, Spain, Portugal, Denmark, Poland, Canada, China, Israel and Argentina.
Many free side events will also be held at the Energy Show, including sessions on Energy Financing for SMEs, the National Energy Services Framework, Smart Grid in Ireland and social media for business.
