(February/March 2018) ENTRUST researchers present their findings at the World Sustainable Energy Days (WSED) in Wels, Austria.

Members of the ENTRUST researcher consortium, including Niall Dunphy (UCC), Breffní Lennon (UCC), Esti Sanvvicente (LGI), Suzi Tart (LGI) and Giulia Barbano (IES) attended the 2018 World Sustainable Energy Days (WSED) recently in Wels, Austria. This two-day event, which ran from Wednesday 28 February to Friday 2 March, brings together over 600 delegates from 50+ countries to present and listen to innovative research and renewable energy projects from across Europe. A guest speaker at the plenary session, Niall Dunphy also hosted a parallel workshop on research outcomes from the ENTRUST H2020 project. The workshop was a great success, demonstrated by the additional space needed to accommodate the high level of delegate interest in the project.

The World Sustainable Energy Days (WSED) is one of the largest conferences of its kind in Europe and takes place annually during February/ March in Wels, Austria. Energy efficiency and renewable energy are key to the EU’s economic competitiveness at all levels, from member states, to the regions, down to individual businesses; with the resulting economic growth leading to new and heretofore unforeseen opportunities in employment and environmental comfort for all citizens. The conference brings together more than 600 delegates from over 50 countries from business, public sector and the research community.

Clean energy for economic competitiveness and how to make the clean energy transition work for business, the planet and people will be core themes of the World Sustainable Energy Days 2019. The event will feature policies, technology innovation and market development and offers a unique combination of conferences and interactive events.
