Electrical courses graduates could be involved renewable energy project

People with electrical qualifications could potentially become involved in a new sustainable energy project in Ireland.

A new deal has been announced between Wavebob and the Irish Electricity Supply Board (ESB), which will see a new device connected to the national grid.

The firm has developed a buoy structure that can absorb and harness wave energy to produce electricity.

Reuters reported that the ESB is to provide engineering services to help with the design and creation of Wavebob's first wave energy converter to supply the nation's power.

ESB International executive director Michael McNicholas said this could give a boost to the country's green jobs, potentially including people who have trained on electrical courses.

He said: "This agreement fits with ESB's strategic commitment to the development of a wave and tidal energy industry in Ireland that will support the economy through the development of new green jobs."

Meanwhile, Glasgow is to become the site of a new Centre of Engineering Excellence for Renewable Energy, as part of an initiative developed by Scottish and Southern Energy.
