The world’s first carbon-neutral constructed convention centre - The CCD, attracts European clean electricity conference.

The Convention Centre Dublin (The CCD) has been selected to host the Eurelectric Power Summit 2020, taking place from 25 to 26 May.

With a focus on reducing energy consumption and a commitment to long term sustainability, The CCD proved a great fit for the summit.

As one of Europe’s most environmentally friendly venues, The CCD received the ISO 14001 accreditation just one year after opening. The Eurelectric Power Summit is an essential arena where thought leaders, policymakers, customers and industry captains meet and learn from each other about key trends in clean electricity.

Speaking about the event, Eurelectric Director of Communications & Corporate Affairs, Koen Noyens said: “Eurelectric Power Summit is The Place for the clean power ecosystem to meet, share, explore, learn and exchange. Our summit has become the hub for electrifying your business models, digitalising your ideas and rooting them in the norm.”

Commenting on why Dublin and The CCD were selected, Mr. Noyens added, “Dublin was an obvious place to be. Ireland has played a key role in the history of computing and, in recent years, it is a hub for tech leaders to mature and upskill their technologies. The CCD was selected because of its great facilities and central location, being beautifully situated on the riverfront.”

Welcoming the news, Stephen Meehan, CEO of The CCD commented, “We are delighted to host the Eurelectric Power Summit. Sustainability is at the top of our minds here at The CCD, from the clever design of the building making use of natural light, to our comprehensive waste management policy, we all recognise that we have a part to play. We look forward to providing a green venue to host this clean energy event.”
