The Green Way
The Green Way
The Green Way (TGW) was established in 2010 as Dublin’s cleantech cluster, to stimulate economic growth and employment in the green economy. TGW is a collaborative cluster, recognised by government as a convergence of knowledge, expertise and experience stimulating transformational change for the Irish cleantech sector through deployment of best practice solutions.
Its founding members are Dublin Airport Authority (DAA), Dublin City University (DCU), Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT), Dublin City Council (DCC), Fingal County Council (FCC), North Dublin Chamber of Commerce (NDCC) and Ballymun Regeneration Ltd (BRL). ESB and Magnet Networks are more recently engaged as strategic partners to the cluster.
The TGW works to bring together the public sector, academia, industry and consumers, to facilitate greater innovation outputs for all players, and stimulate economic growth and employment in the Irish cleantech sector. It supports the integration of its ecosystem-development strategy with RENEW as it identifies and connects cleantech innovators (including waste) in to the ecosytem, sharing knowledge and information.
TGW participated in RENEW A1, A4, A5, A6, A7, A12, A13, A14, A15, A16. TGW’s participation in RENEW offers:
1. Access and tap in to TGW's cleantech ecosystem
2. Access to "waste" experts in the ecosystem who will inform policy actions and plans
3. Opportunity to connect Innovation expertise within TGW network
The Rediscovery Centre, a sub-partner, is a social enterprise dedicated to providing community employment and training via innovative reuse enterprises which use waste and unwanted materials as a resource and raw material for new product design.
Its scientists, designers, business managers and craftsmen are united in a common purpose of sustainability through resource efficiency and life cycle design. Its operational processes and programmes provide workplace skills training and development for unemployed people, graduates and the community. It also runs public training courses, demonstrations and educational activities highlighting the benefits of effective resource management and encouraging everyone to rediscover the value of waste.
