Energy Research in Ireland

The IERC was established to conduct highly collaborative research with industry with high potential for commercialisation of results and growing the energy research capacity in Ireland. Our focus is in the demand side of energy management and generation, which includes distributed generation and micro-grids. A core component of our unique model is the collaborative project and flexible intellectual property offering. This novel approach to multi-party collaboration and inventor ownership promotes and accelerates pre-commercial outcomes into product and jobs for the Irish economy.
