Collaborating with the Best
Recognising that collaboration is essential for innovation, ESB has partnerships with a number of international companies and universities on various research and development projects in the energy sector. Below is a sample of some of the partnerships that ESB Innovation is involved in.
Creating an International Energy Exemplar Airport Complex
ESB is working with the Dublin Airport Authority (daa) to help them achieve energy savings of 33% at Dublin Airport. To achieve this, new energy services and low carbon energy technologies like electric transport, solar PV and geothermal are being used. This joint innovation agreement will spearhead Dublin Airport's aim of becoming an International Energy Airport exemplar by 2020.
This initiative also assists Ireland and ESB to meet the EU Energy Targets.
