Sustainable Energy Authority Ireland

Abstract:

The Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland was established as Ireland's national energy authority under the Sustainable Energy Act 2002. SEAI's mission is to play a leading role in transforming Ireland into a society based on sustainable energy structures, technologies and practices. To fulfil this mission SEAI aims to provide well-timed and informed advice to Government, and deliver a range of programmes efficiently and effectively, while engaging and motivating a wide range of stakeholders and showing continuing flexibility and innovation in all activities. SEAI's actions will help advance Ireland to the vanguard of the global green technology movement, so that Ireland is recognised as a pioneer in the move to decarbonised energy systems.

Science Foundation Ireland

Abstract:

Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) is the national foundation for investment in scientific and engineering research.  SFI invests in academic researchers and research teams who are most likely to generate new knowledge, leading edge technologies and competitive enterprises in the fields of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). The Foundation also promotes and supports the study of, education in, and engagement with STEM and promotes an awareness and understanding of the value of STEM to society and, in particular, to the growth of the economy. SFI makes grants based upon the merit review of distinguished scientists. SFI also advances co-operative efforts among education, government, and industry that support its fields of emphasis and promotes Ireland’s ensuing achievements around the world.

Marine Renewable Energy Ireland (MaREI)

Abstract:

The SFI MaREI Centre is a cluster of key university and industrial partners dedicated to solving the main scientific, technological and socio-economic challenges related to marine renewable energy. These challenges will require innovative solutions to reduce time to market and reduce costs to a competitive level. They cover all aspects of the technology development and require solutions to the engineering problems, energy conversion and storage transmission and integration as well as the enabling ICT technologies and environmental aspects. MaREI will deliver significant economic and societal impacts, leveraging from existing internationally recognised groups in Irish universities working in the MRE sector. MaREI will develop an innovation environment that will yield intellectual property and high potential start-up companies, and lead to jobs in the Irish economy through the outputs from the targeted projects with the industry partners.

Hydraulic and Maritime Research Centre (UCC)

Abstract:

The Hydraulics and Maritime Research Centre (HMRC) at University College Cork was established in 1979. It is a centre of excellence within Ireland for Ocean Renewables and Coastal Engineering providing support to the maritime industry as well as fundamental R&D.

The staff at the HMRC have been selected from a wide range of engineering backgrounds; including civil, environmental, electrical and electronic, mechanical, aeronautical and oceanographic. This provides a diverse assortment of experience and skills to explore the multi disciplinary technology. Further growth is expected over the next few months, taking on a number of Post-doctoral researchers, engineers and PhD students.

The Centre, which is principally a dedicated research facility, also offers a teaching and education function. It houses the only facilities for wave simulation in Ireland with a Wave Flume and an Ocean Wave Basin.
