Sustainable energy: a bottom-up approach in a globalised world

  Author: Paul Kenny BEC Eng MIEI, CEO of the Tipperary Energy Agency Our energy supplies are entering a period of significant transition. They are moving from a situation where using cheap fossil fuels was acceptable and climate change and energy security was not a concern, to a future that will include a large portion of renewable energy sources. Governments are taking significant steps to shift from wasteful, carbon-based energy systems to ones that are renewable and efficient. This ...

Irish job prospects from renewable and sustainable energy technologies

    Authors: Vincent Carragher, PJ McLoughlin and Paul Kenny, Tipperary Energy Agency A precise understanding on wider benefits arising from renewable and sustainable energy is important for decision makers whether European, national, regional or local.

Irish agri-engineering firm Richard Keenan & Co, however, is not one for pulling in its horns. The company is entering the Chinese market on foot of a deal signed with a Chinese partner, Shanghai Yanhua Biotech, which will bring Keenan’s feeder wagons to farms in China – a country that is at a key stage in its accelerated transition from ...

Frontier oil and gas exploration driven by engineering technology

  Authors: Dr Conor Ryan MIEI, senior geoengineer – geophysical technology & operations, Tullow Oil; and Dr Jonathan Leather, geoscience manager – subsurface technology, Tullow Oil Tullow Oil was founded in 1985 when Aidan Heavey, an accountant working for Tullow Engineering in Carlow, heard about an opportunity to develop small gas fields in Senegal that had been overlooked by the major oil companies.
