50 people attended the IRBEA ‘Financing Bioenergy Projects’ Workshop at Luttrellstown Golf Club in Castleknock. Attendees would of learnt some valuable lessons from the talks, speakers discussed their experiences financing projects, from large biomass power plants (Peter Dickson) to the medium size projects including AD and CHP technology (George Delaney). Garrett Monaghan’s contribution was important as he highlighted the issue of having a detailed proposal and well informed advisors. Paddy Phelan offered valuable insight into the funding implications for community based projects, including the importance of involving the community in planning larger scale projects. This event was the first of it’s kind for IrBEA focusing on finance and from the feedback we have received we will hope to be running a similar event in 2017.
