14 ENERGy SoLuTIoNS Dec 2010 / Jan 2011 www.esb.ie/em ESBStore.ie product review 8This issue Fergus Keane reviews Solar Powered Garden Lights from esbstores.ie on the day that the eSB online shop was launched, i decided to take an early plunge, and ordered a 10m string of solar powered garden lights. they arrived the next day and i have been impressed with the sparkling sight of them in the back garden ever since, albeit at a lower brightness level since winter arrived. i have posted a mini review of these on the eSB sustainability discussion board. one preference i have for the eShop would be to see it hosting more Led lights, as i see these as being the real champions of energy efficiency, so i was pleased when i was asked to review an Led. however, this is one with a difference: it is strapped to your head ! this Led sensor jogger light boasts that it is a “high quality, super versatile head torch, ideal for joggers, walkers, or for all those jobs when you need good light and both hands free”. i have recently taken up running and i wondered how useful it might be during a test run at night in the local park. there is an undeniable strangeness in running through the darkness like a miner with a light strapped to your forehead! while mostly, the light will help avoid twisting an ankle on a tree branch, it will ESB Independent Energy launches An Taisce GreenSchools Project 2010 leading provider of green energy, eSB independent energy is delighted to support the an taisce green Schools energy Project for this, the third year. it is a unique project that brings together primary school children with local businesses – students are learning about reducing carbon emissions and being greener, and are then transferring this knowledge into positive environmental action at a wider community level.” Patricia oliver, director of an taisce’s environmental education Unit, highlighted the positive impact that the green-Schools energy programme has had to date: “Last year alone, 15-20 million units of electricity and 200 million litres of water were saved by green-Schools throughout ireland over the school year. this is a fantastic achievement and demonstrative of the effectiveness of projects such as this.” when asked about RtÉ’s involvement in the Project, eileen duggan, office Services Manager with RtÉ explained “it’s great to be contributing to this very constructive and worthwhile project with a school which has clearly proved its commitment to sustainability and continuous improvement.” St. Mary’s is the 2,000th school in ireland to be awarded the prestigious green Flag and in recognition of this achievement Minister Ryan raised the green Flag at the school. in addition to Minister Ryan, the event was attended by representatives from eSB independent energy, an taisce, RtÉ and the school’s Board of Management. n Schools and businesses wishing to participate in this year’s An Taisce Green Schools Energy Project supported by ESB Independent Energy can contact www. ESBie.ie for more details. generally be shining directly ahead as you look straight ahead of you. Before i received the product, i had thought that it might find some way of harvesting the energy of a runner’s movement, and perhaps in future versions of the product, the manufacturers may have figured this out. while making pathways more visible to the runner, it would also help make the runner more visible, therefore hopefully making the activity safer during wintertime. it can also double as a work torch, with a light that is variable between spot focus and spread. Being a little quirky, you will find it in the “alternative and cool products” section of eSBStore.ie. while it doesn’t have the appeal of products here such as the Living colours mood light, it may be useful as a gift for an enthusiastic jogger who wants to remove all excuses for training during those bleak, dark winter evenings. at €31.50 it seems good value, particularly given the fact that it is Led-based technology, which means the energy usage of the device is negligible. n Pupils from St. Mary’s Boys National School. ESBIE MiniSteR FoR communications, energy and natural Resources, eamon Ryan, td joined pupils from St. Mary’s Boys national School, Rathfarnham and staff from RtÉ to launch this year’s an taisce greenSchools eSB independent energy Project. the an taisce greenSchools energy Project, supported by eSB independent energy, encourages primary school students and businesses to partner up in order to exchange expertise and devise creative ways to conserve energy and reduce carbon emissions. RtÉ teamed up with ireland’s 2000th green School, St Mary’s BnS, Rathfarnham. the first of this year’s collaborations is seen as a flagship partnership and a major commitment by RtÉ in reducing its carbon footprint and developing its already successful sustainability programme. Previous achievements by Rte and St Mary’s in areas of waste reduction, management and recycling have been recognised as best practice in both business and academic circles. it is envisaged that both RtÉ and St Mary’s will share their expertise, knowledge and experiences to produce an effective and exciting partnership. “to have reached a point where two thousand of ireland’s national Schools are ‘going green’ is remarkable,” said the Minister. “this is exactly the right approach to be taking – educating the future generations about sustainability and evoking a sense of passion and excitement amongst them about green issues. i’m sure their collaboration with RtÉ through the eSB independent energy sponsored green energy Project will deliver more efficiencies both at the organisation and in the school and i wish all involved the very best of luck.” Brid horan, executive director energy Solutions, eSB said: “as a Appreciation Aideen Logan aideen StaRted work in eSB Fleet Street, 29 short years ago. She moved to it Solutions in 1990 where her ability shone through, recognised through progressively more senior roles. She will be best remembered from her time in it consulting, initially working with Bill ebrill as her mentor, until the point where aideen became the Manager, it consulting. with her experience, ability, work ethic, business acumen and relationships with customers, aideen was respected, admired and valued as a senior manager both in it, across wider eSB Business and with eSB Business Partners. She played a vital part in the successful implementation of key major eSB it projects including MoiP and aiM. as Manager it consulting, she looked after the needs both business and personal for all her staff. her advice was sought and valued by many. aideen always made time for others, no matter what her own commitments were. aideen’s high standards and caring of others ran throughout her life both at work and in her personal life. her face brightened when she spoke of her husband Bernard and darling daughter Jenny. She had a very strong and unique sense of style, which shone through in house and home, in her garden and indeed herself. aideen’s great loves in her life were her husband Bernard, daughter Jenny, dylan (her dog), tranquil garden, and of course all her family and friends - of which aideen had many. we are all very saddened by aideen’s untimely passing and will long remember her for her wit, style, her concern for others, her sense of humour and last but not least for her beautiful smile. aideen will indeed be missed by many but all have a very fond memory with a smile on their face. Jenny and Bernard would like to take this opportunity to thank all aideen’s friends and colleagues for the wonderful cards and letters which have been of great comfort at a very difficult time. aideen loved her work and enjoyed a very fulfilling career, making a lot of wonderful friends along the way. a Big heartfelt thank you to you all. n Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources Eamon Ryan TD, Eileen Duggan of RTE, St. Mary’s Boys School Principal Tom Mullins and pupil Daniel Furlong.
