The Green Way

The Green Way facilitated the pilot deployment of an end-to-end Glen Dimplex Quantum Smart Electric Thermal Storage System to fulfil space and water heating requirements and act as an aggregated demand side management tool on the national grid with the potential to enable the dispatch of large quantities of renewable electricity in Ireland which would otherwise be curtailed.

In 2012 Glen Dimplex rolled out a major trial with The Green Way involving the installation of 360 space heaters, connected to a Glen Dimplex gateway and web portal, in 140 social housing homes managed by the Dublin City Council and Fingal County Council. The Green Way demonstration project was conducted in partnership with Eirgrid and the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI).

The project was independently verified and monitored by the Dublin Institute of Technology and demonstrated how public and private sectors can work together to solve energy and environmental challenges.
