TEMPO researchers

The Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton TD and Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources, Pat Rabbitte TD, have announced a new €1.69m energy efficiency research project that hopes to significantly reduce energy costs for industry and create jobs. TEMPO (Total Energy Management for Production Operations) research project will focus on establishing effective means for monitoring total energy consumption during manufacture processes to reduce overall energy costs. It is hoped research results allow international and indigenous companies to also identify areas where they can significantly reduce energy costs. The project is a cross-border collaboration between Limerick Institute of Technology and the University of Ulster, funded through (IERC ) International Energy Research Centre located at Tyndall National Institute, Cork. "This research project ... clearly demonstrates the benefits that come from linking our research capability with industry needs, and from developing integrated energy projects that can deliver measurable cost-effective solutions" commented Minister Rabbitte. "A key part of the Government's plan for economic growth and job creation is to turn good ideas into good jobs by supporting and investing in Irish research capability and the commercialisation of this research" added " said Minister Bruton. Dr Siobhan Moane LIT Head of Research & Technology Transfer said "TEMPO will provide an excellent opportunity for the team in LIT to work with leading international research performers such as Professor Martin McGinnity of the Intelligent Systems Research Centre (UU - Magee) and Professor Neil Hewitt of the Centre for Sustainable Technologies (UU - Jordanstown) and with lead multinationals committed to sustainable manufacturing practice". The principal scientist with the TEMPO project is John Cosgrove, director of the ACORN Research Group at Limerick Institute of Technology, working with Professor Martin McGinnity, director of the Intelligent Systems Research Centre (ISRC) at University of Ulster's Magee campus and Professor Neil Hewitt, director of the Centre for Sustainable Technologies (CST) at the University of Ulster's Jordanstown campus.
