As part of its ‘Knowledge Still’ programme the Irish Whiskey Association in partnership with the Irish arm of the Institute of Brewing and Distilling will hold a hybrid workshop focusing on Energy Supply Decarbonising Energy Supply for Irish Distilleries and Breweries from 10:00 to 13:00 on Monday, 25 April 2022. This hybrid workshop will take place at the Ibec offices (88-86 Lower Baggot St, Dublin 2).

Over the last number of years, Irish distilleries and breweries have greatly improved their performance in terms of Energy Efficiency with a consequent reduction in Energy Consumption and associated Carbon Footprint.

Energy Supply also has a major impact on the Carbon Footprint of Irish Distilleries and Breweries, and their products, both in terms of Scope 1 Emissions (Fuel Combusted on site and fuel used in Company Owned Vehicles) and Scope 2 Emissions (Purchased Electricity and/or Heating/Cooling). This seminar looks at what the future holds for Energy Supply in Ireland from a Carbon Point of View and will give Distilleries and Breweries an overview of currently available solutions.

This will be a hybrid meeting meaning it will be possible for members to attend in person or dial in via MS Teams.
