Mary Nolan from ESb Energy international signs-up for carsharing with Susanne afra of the NTa and ESb iCT Sustainability Champion Tommy hopper. Hello and welcome The ESB section of the new carsharing site, www.carsharing.ie, was launched re- What an exciting and positive period we have had lately in the country. As EM prepares to go to press we are celebrating the wonderful events that have unfolded in the last week which have put Ireland back again centre stage on the world news – but this time for all positive reasons. The visits of HM Queen Elizabeth II and President Barack Obama have captured the nation and needless to say ESB was not removed from all this excitement. While those of us here in Dublin, particularly in HO, had bird’s eye views of a lot of what was happening, being so close to Government Buildings, we were all fascinated by the numbers of security, Garda and army personnel. We had quite got used to barriers, road closures and the constant sound of sirens and helicopters! Meanwhile our colleagues in Networks were much closer to the action – crews in Moneygall, Dublin, Cashel, Kildare and Cork were working with local authorities and communities to ensure all the additional requirements and systems were in place for these high profile visits. The yellow vans were quite distinctive when the media sent out images and broadcasts of the preparations. And in the middle of all this excitement crews still had to deal with unseasonal storms in other parts of the country. This issue of EM should add to the general feeling of positivity, there are loads of reports in this issue detailing many recent achievements within ESB, achievements that we can be proud of. Well done to all concerned.
