ESB SET TO SECURE €3.5M EU SMART GRID RESEARCH FUNDING IN IRELAND 8 The successful bid by the FINESCE consortium of which ESB is a leading member is set to result in the funding of smart energy trials across Europe. The Internet is expected to drive major change and improvements in the Health, Education and Energy sectors. The EU is supporting significant research in these industries, but particularly in the energy sector. As part of the FINESCE consortium, ESB has successfully bid against other groups for €12.9m in grant funding. ESB and its Irish partners will receive over 25% of the total funding for research based in Ireland. The Irish trials will involve ESB ecars and will be led by Telecom Services, who are part of ESB Networks. The trials will be centred in Galway and the Networks Training Centre in Portlaoise. This project will commence in April 2013 and will run for two years. It leads on from a previous smart energy project where ESB ecars successfully participated in a work package on Electric Mobility. This work package also involved the two Irish partners who will continue to participate in FINESCE There are two advantages to winning this research funding: in the shortterm it provides employment in Ireland, but in the long-term it also increases our expertise in smart network technology.
