I am passionate about energy conservation and energy waste avoidance.
In the last 15 years he has dedicated his engineering expertise and focus on developing sustainable solutions in energy and water, helping businesses to get a better understanding of their energy and water usage. He was the driving force behind the build out of Ireland’s first Living Lab Smart Building, in IBM Research Labs Dublin in 2011, the highly instrumented building that allowed for the first time for the integration, testing and validation of many of the emerging Green Technologies.
In that time he has amassed a significant data analytical toolkit and patent portfolio that allows for quick and effective detection of leaks and energy wastage in a process or business, and across a multitude of different industrial sectors.
He considers the evolution of Data Science and the availability of Internet of Things enabled meter and sensors as game changers. Emerging skills and tools which is giving practitioners almost an immediate step change in the levels of understanding of energy and water use within our businesses and homes, and one which offers a real and practical path to achieve our carbon reduction goals over the medium term.
He also holds a Masters in Statistics and Reliability and is a LEAN Sigma Black Belt, skills which run complimentary to his lifetime’s energy conservation mission and passion.
When is an Electricity Smart Meter not a Smart Choice?
Today electrical energy Smart Meters are being rolled out across Ireland, and as the strong marketing campaign suggests, promises customers the power to understand and control their own energy use behaviour.December 28, 2022
