WITH over 20 exhibitors already secured, Letterkenny Institute of Technology’s (LYIT) Green Day is once again set to be of huge interest to businesses, households and students from all over Donegal, Derry and Strabane.
Green Day will take place in LYIT on Thursday November 28 from 9.30am to 2.30pm and along with the extensive range of exhibitors, it will include a seminar hosting an international panel of experts looking at how renewable energy can help achieve Ireland’s Climate Action targets.
This is LYIT’s fourth year to host the Green Day at their campus and Mary Daly, LYIT’s Estates Manager is delighted to be joining up with the multi-national EU funded SMARTrenew project led by Dr Nick Timmons, Principal Investigator of LYITs WiSAR Lab.
“We are building on the success of last year’s event,” says Mary Daly. “This year we are adding a further dimension with SMARTrenew hosting a panel of international experts, including an energy consultant from Denmark and a SMARTrenew partner from Iceland, to share with us their experiences, insights and learning on how they have embraced smart renewable energy technology, including smart energy storage in batteries and heat extraction from the sea.”
Speakers will include Alan Ryan from SEAI, Ireland, Ragnar Ásmundsson from HeatRD in Iceland, Eddie McGoldrick from Power on Technologies in Northern Ireland and Magda Kowalska from PlanEnergi in Denmark. The seminar will be of interest to businesses operating in this area, public sector organisations, policymakers, learners and lecturers.
Alongside the seminar will be a range of exhibitors including the OPW Optimising Power initiative, recycling demonstrations with Voice Ireland, local suppliers of energy efficiency technologies and electric vehicles, information on Green Mortgages, reusable cup promotions, health and fitness checks, display of student projects and opportunities to meet the Green Campus team and learn more about the SMARTrenew project.
