Sav­ing en­ergy at Lidl

Mid Louth Independent - - NEWS -

IR­ISH clean­tech firm Airsyn­ergy to­gether with Lidl an­nounced the in­stal­la­tion of ground-break­ing In­tel­li­gent Smart Poles (ISPs) in Drogheda.

The ISPs are the first of their kind to run off wind and so­lar power, bring­ing an off-grid light­ing so­lu­tion to Ire­land. They have been de­vel­oped and patented by cut­ting edge Ir­ish clean­tech firm Airsyn­ergy, which is head­quar­tered at Dublin Air­port.

The ISP looks and works like a nor­mal street light, but it is a hy­brid smart pole that uses wind and so­lar en­ergy to con­tin­u­ously power it­self off-grid. The re­sult is re­li­able, re­new­able light­ing with Drogheda lead­ing the way in this type of en­ergy in­stal­la­tion in Ire­land. As well as the Drogheda in­stal­la­tion, the Airsyn­ergy ISPs have re­cently been in­stalled in the US and Ger­many.

In an ef­fort to in­tro­duce more green as­pects to their stores, Lidl has in­stalled two of the cut­ting-edge ISPs in the carpark of their re­cently re­opened Drogheda out­let.

The in­stal­la­tions en­sure the carpark con­tin­ues to be well-lit for shop­pers dur­ing late hours.

Lidl’s Head of Cor­po­rate So­cial Re­spon­si­bil­ity, Deirdre Ryan and Airsyn­ergy CEO Gerry But­ler, at Lidl, Drogheda.
