Innovation represents a smarter, cleaner, more efficient future for us all us, and it represents the future of Glen Dimplex. Our business has an unrivalled track record in developing breakthrough technologies in space and water heating, amassing a portfolio of hundreds of industry firsts and worldwide patents. Globally, we retain a creative resource of over 500 development engineers and leading industrial designers and today the Group is actively involved in numerous major demonstration projects around the world. More information on these projects can be found below.
RealValue, a €15.5m Horizon 2020 European Project, is using a combination of physical demonstrations in Ireland, Germany and Latvia along with innovative modelling techniques, in order to demonstrate how local small-scale energy storage, optimised across the whole EU energy system, with advanced ICT, could bring benefits to all market participants.
ACCESS (Assisting Communities to Connect to Electrical Sustainable Sources) is an innovative project which will enable the real time matching of local renewable electricity generation to local electricity demand in off-gas-grid properties in order to use renewable energy to heat homes efficiently and affordably.
NINES (Northern Isles New Energy Solutions ) aims to address some of the most pressing energy challenges in Shetland by using large and small scale energy storage solutions combined with an active network management (ANM) system to create a smart grid and allow small scale renewable generation to play a much more significant role in meeting the islands’ energy needs.
PowerShift Atlantic demonstrated one of the world’s first fully grid-integrated virtual power plants designed to allow for more effective integration of wind power, using load and wind forecasting and aggregation capabilities to perform near real-time load shifting and provide new ancillary services to the grid.
The Green Way is a collaborative venture established in 2010 by industry, academic institutions and public/semi-state players in the Dublin region, whose vision is to create jobs and trade opportunities by activating and developing an internationally recognised cleantech cluster.
