[UPCOMING]
Dublin Climate Action Week

15th September 2021. (10:00am - 11:00am)

This event will introduce Regional Energy Demand Analysis Portal (REDAP), an SEAI co-funded decision-support tool which will help guide Dublin’s energy transition.

 

During this presentation, policy-makers, planners and other public representatives are invited to learn about how REDAP can be used to map and profile energy consumption in the building stock and mobility sectors (incl. average fuel types, expenditure and load profiles).

Attendees will also gain an understanding of how these data insights can be used to define Climate Action Plans and decarbonisation zones, to engage with Sustainable Energy Communities and to promote regions as attractive places to live, work and invest in.

REDAP Presentation to ESB

15th July 2021

During an hour-long online session, Oisin Doherty (Codema) and Niall Conway (Spatial Outlook Ltd.) presented the REDAP PoC to ESB, Ireland's commercial semi-state company and distribution operator. Audience members included management from Electric Ireland, ESB Networks, ESB International, and the ESB Innovation Hub.

 

The presentation centred around the overlap between local governments citizen-focused decarbonisation action and how this relates to ESB's customer-focused activities. The presentation was followed by a very informative Q&A session on the topics of building stock and mobility energy demand.

Need-Owner Workshop Part 2

28th March 2021

The second need-owner workshop allows the consortium partners to present and demonstrate improved REDAP Proof of Concept System to an audience of need-owners from Austria, Sweden and Ireland. This included Dublin's energy agency, Codema, the City of Gothenburg Council (including Göteborg Energi), and Austrian Energy planning agencies, EKUT, and Klima-und Energie-Modellregionen Schwarzatal. The workshop also enjoyed the participation of representatives from the Swedish Energy Agency and the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI).

 

As the R&D team continue to work towards an operational and deployable software system, the invaluable end-user feedback which was received will be incorporated into the various software, analytical methodologies and use-case processes.
