ElectroRoute’s core vision is to make net zero a reality which is why we are proud to announce that John O’Brien will be representing ElectroRoute at COP26, the UN Climate Change Summit, as part of the Energy Institute’s Future Energy 500 Initiative (#FE500).

John, Client Trading Business Partner in ElectroRoute and the Treasurer of the Irish Branch of the Energy Institute, will be talking about Battery Technology in Ireland and the use of it as a solution to provide flexibility on the grid and its benefits in enabling a just and green transition.

This will be part of the findings of the Energy Institute #FE500 tour which has toured some of the most innovative, essential and dramatic energy projects, from biomass in Shetland and tidal in Orkney, to carbon capture and storage off Aberdeen and wind energy at Whitelee. The findings of this documentary will be premiering alongside COP26, at Scottish Power’s headquarters in Glasgow, on Wednesday 3 November, following which an expert panel of industry and political leaders will debate and discuss the key recommendations of the film.
