Delivering a cleaner energy future | David McGowan | TEDxStormont

Northern Ireland’s journey to a cleaner energy future is underway. We have an ecosystem of engineers and scientists who are pushing the boundaries of physics to harness Northern Ireland’s abundance of green energy resources, like wind and solar. As engineers and scientists we can only take this so far. To really make a difference, we need the buy-in from the public and the acceptance of communities who will host green energy infrastructure. We need a conversation to join the dots between green energy schemes and climate change, we need discussion and facts about the benefits of this infrastructure, we need to help individuals make the informed choice to support these projects in their community. Together, we can transform the Northern Ireland power system for future generations. Let’s get this done – our planet can’t wait. Dr. David McGowan is a Senior Lead Engineer within Energy Systems Analysis at SONI. David was responsible for SONI’s Tomorrow’s Energy Scenarios, which sets out a range of credible pathways for the decarbonisation of the NI power system.

David is a steering group member for scenario building working group within the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENTSOE). The scenario working group is responsible for developing long term gas and electricity scenarios that are compliant with EU Energy and Climate Targets.

Before joining SONI, David worked as a research fellow in power system control, at Queen’s University, Belfast from which he holds a PhD in Engineering. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
