7th RegEnergy Project Meeting

Kilkenny, Ireland

21 October 2021 - 22 October 2021

3cea was delighted to welcome the RegEnergy partners in Kilkenny Ireland, for the 7th Working Group Meeting and the 8th Steering Group Meeting on October 21st and 22nd. This was the first in-person meeting of the RegEnergy partners since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic. It gave everyone the chance to meet again and for new members of each team to get to know their EU partners.

The meeting allowed the RegEnergy partners from across Europe to discuss their own experiences in the RegEnergy project up to now. Each partner discussed how the project has developed in their regions, what they have learned and which progress are planned for the future. In addition to the lack of financial and technical resources for climate protection in cities, a major problem for many project partners relies in the fact that the further development of renewable energies is limited by the low level of acceptance among citizens, companies and politicians. This barrier can only be overcome by actively demonstrating the potential, reliability and safety of renewable energy sources. The partners were also able to discuss the collective effort going forward with RegEnergy and better define some of the long-term goals of the project.

Finally, on Friday 22nd, the partnership was invited to visit the Ormonde Organics facility in Waterford. Here, Ormonde’s representatives spoke about the process of developing biogas from bio-waste products taken in from all over Ireland. Michael Murphy and Tom Nolan explained in details all steps of this process: from the entry of waste until the delivery of biogas and biomethane, the procedure of feeding and controlling the digesters, how to stock the produced gas. Finally they presented the newly installed facility to upgrade biogas into bio-methane.
