Irish Cleantech Best Practice showcase at DIT GrangegormanPosted: 1 April, 2015
The Green Way, hosted by Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT) and the Grangegorman Development Agency (GDA), organised an Irish Cleantech Best Practice Showcase at Grangegorman last month.
The Green Way, which is leading an Enterprise Ireland sponsored clustering project, brought together a selection of Irish-based companies1 that are locally developing cleantech solutions and exporting them globally. Companies that presented included IBM, Kingspan, Cylon, Davra Networks, Power Capital, Coolpower, Exergyn, Fenestra Pro, FDT Engineering, E-SAVE and M2C.
Aideen O’Hora, Executive Director of The Green Way, said “Ireland is building a strong reputation as a leader in cleantech with establish brands such as Kingspan and Glen Dimplex being recognised globally. Our emerging companies have also gained international traction, and are taking ideas that they have developed locally to the world-market. The Green Way wants to support innovation in cleantech by providing platforms- or “living labs” - so that companies can test their pre-commercial technology in real environments, and thus aid commercialisation. Grangegorman offers this opportunity. In addition networking events such as this showcase are vital to bridge dialogue between innovators and users of solutions, so one may inform other of needs and best-practice.”
