The Galway Energy Summit 2018 (GES18) will be hosted in the National University of Ireland in Galway (NUIG). This is a student organised event that will be held in the Bailey Allen Hall on Thursday the 8th of March 2018.


The event commences with a panel discussion at 4pm. The theme for GES18 is “The Future of Energy in Ireland”. The discussion will provide the opportunity for industry, students and academics to talk about Ireland’s future energy strategy. This subject has never been so topical as it has just recently been discovered that Ireland is failing to reach goal targets set out by 2020.


This will be followed by a careers fair which will provide students the opportunity to speak to potential future employers. The careers fair will bring together various energy experts, companies, start-ups , students and professors to one venue. This is the ideal situation for students and other visitors to understand and become more knowledgeable of the work being done in the energy industry. Companies will have the chance to promote their work and allow their ideas and methods to inspire others.


The summit closes with a mixing event in Sult, NUIG’s college bar. The first ever of its kind, the mixing event is a unique networking opportunity where companies and students will be able to discuss and share thoughts on the summit.


This is a student run event- hosted and attended by students and will allow for a strong step towards energy efficiency in the future. Companies will also have the chance to attract some of Ireland brightest innovative young graduates and/or promote potential internships that may be available.
