Keynote – Richard Bruton, Irish Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment

Minister Bruton is an experienced politician, representing his Dublin constituency for over 30 years. In that time, he has served as a government minister several times, with portfolios including education, enterprise and employment.


Achieving a leadership position in renewable energy for Ireland is one of Minister Bruton’s priorities for his time in office. Ireland’s ocean energy sector will be a valuable asset as the country moves to decarbonise, especially given the scale of its natural resources.
