Car-sharing is already very popular in EsB and over 30% of staff have said that they would be interested in car-sharing in a recent staff survey. sharyn McMenamin and Declan Furlong from iT services have been car-sharing for a number of years on their daily commute to and from Kildare. According to sharyn “carsharing offers many benefits. it saves money because you share fuel costs, and the daily commute is less stressful as you are not behind the steering wheel every day”. Car-sharing also reduces your carbon footprint and will lead to less congestion if there are fewer single-occupant cars on the road On the car-sharing website there is a ‘Public Lifts’ section that is open to the entire car-sharing community. There is also a dedicated ‘EsB’ car-sharing group. We recommend that you use the EsB Group section if you are planning to use the site for commuting to and from work or business travel. Access to this group is restricted to holders of a valid EsB email address. n Full details about signing-up and using the car-sharing site, as well as an ESB disclaimer, are available in the Smarter Travel workplaces section of the Sustainability Intranet site. ESb ecar and charge point in the Science Gallery Café. Electric Dreams Competition science Gallery and EsB ecars launched an ‘Electric Dreams’ competition as part of the Green Machines exhibition at the gallery in Trinity College. The general public are invited to dream up an idea for the next generation mobile app to allow seamless communication between the driver, the smart ecar and the network of charging stations. The winner will be given the chance to drive an ecar for one month and to participate in the EsB ecars trial. EsB ecars Marketing and Communications Manager Dervla O’Flaherty said, “Ecars are super-connected cars with sophisticated communications systems allowing you, the ecar and the charge point network to interact, opening up a world of exciting new opportunities. We’re looking for innovative ideas and the best one will be rewarded with a fantastic opportunity to drive an ecar for one month in early 2011.” said. The competition runs until Monday December 1st and is open to the general public.
