IERC Launches an Expression of Interest Call for Research on Green Gas Certification

The International Energy Research Centre is a key element of the government’s energy research strategy, which aims to develop world class and world scale energy research capability in Ireland that contributes to Ireland’s energy and enterprise policies and is directly relevant to industry, in Ireland and abroad.  The IERC is a market focussed, industry collaborative research centre serving markets of scale, identified by industry and validated by Enterprise Ireland and IDA Ireland.  The Centre explores close to market research, anticipating future technology trends and opportunities for existing industry and acting as beacons for new foreign direct investment.

The IERC invites interested parties to submit a description of their professional suitability and their institutions capabilities with respect to the needs of a research project on the topic of Green Gas Certification.   The purpose of this exercise is to match respondent’s capabilities with a proposed IERC project.  

The IERC in conjunction with specific industry members, have analysed the technical challenges and identified the relevant skillsets and capabilities required to address them. The following document defines the draft research activities and invites interested parties to describe their capabilities and experiences in each domain area.  Projects are multi-disciplinary in nature therefore submissions may involve the inclusion of one or more collaborating institutions.   The respondent must identify a lead PI for the entire project and demonstrate that individual’s suitability for the role.  The respondent must also identify any co-PI’s required to match the list of capabilities and confirm availability and commitments to collaborate on the project. 

The call will be launched on 24th June and will close at 5pm on Friday 12th August 2016.
