  • 1. Propelling Ireland’s Green Growth
  • 2. The development of the Green Economy is at the heart of theIrish Government’s industrial policy, and the cleantech sectoris recognised in Ireland as a global growth industry that willspearhead the future competitiveness of the nation.With US$260bn invested in the clean energy sector in 2011 alone,higher than any previous year and in the face of major economicheadwinds, the private sector is responding to this global cleantechopportunity, with strong investments in cleantech-relatedinfrastructure and innovation.We believe Ireland is well positioned to excel in cleantech giventhe abundant wind and ocean energy resources, the strong andvibrant ICT, engineering and financial services sectors and thecomparatively young and highly educated population. For exampleIreland, having already achieved 20% wind energy penetrationand striving for 40% by 2020, is well positioned to use domesticdemand as a catalyst for generating global leadership in thecleantech sector.A number of cleantech clusters and centres of excellence are Richard Bruton TDalready developing in major cities around the world to drive Minister for Jobs, Enterprise & Innovationregional and national competitiveness, in response to and in order Pat Rabbitte TDto benefit from the growing pressures for resource efficiency and Minister for Communications Energyemission management being felt by governments and consumers & Natural Resourcesworld-wide.

  • 3. 3The Green Way is a collaborative venture established by industry,academic institutions and public/semi state players in the Dublinregion, whose vision is to create jobs and trade opportunities byactivating and developing an internationally recognised cleantechcluster.The Green Way has been formed in order to drive our productivityand innovation using the cluster’s ’triple helix’ of competencies inthe areas of Industry capability, Academic research, developmentand innovation (RD&I), and Government engagement to develop,promote and attract businesses in the cleantech sector and tostimulate job creation. Within The Green Way, Irish cleantechcompanies benefit from access to cleantech R&D capabilitiesprovided by the academic institutions, access to potential procurersof cleantech products and services, as well as access to test bedsand a talent pool provided by all cluster members.Ireland is actively encouraging the development of commercialand research-driven cleantech clusters such as The Green Way toattract inward investment and to nurture indigenous companiesin the sector. According to recent studies by Ernst & Young, this Ronan Kingsupport will in turn lead to a boost in Irish GDP of between 2% Chairman, Ballymun Regeneration Ltdand 4.6% by 2020, as well as growth in cleantech jobs by 2020 up Prof. Brian MacCraithto 80,000.
