UL to participate in a unique new large-scale Dutch-Irish offshore renewables project

University of Limerickis one of the stakeholders in the Dutch-Irish research project HybridLabs, to help accelerate the deployment of offshore renewable technologies for both electricity and hydrogen production.

It comes on foot of the declaration by An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar that the Shannon Estuary can become the ‘green digital powerhouse for the country’.

A unique Dutch Irish infrastructure of hybrid experimental facilities, simulators, and offshore demonstration sites, UL’s initial contribution to HybridLabs will be composed of research in materials circularity at the Bernal Institute and will be embedded in a wider group of relevant projects. 

HybridLabs has been funded to the tune of €10m by the Netherlands Science Foundation NWO to address energy transition needs whilst also strengthening the offshore food and ecological transitions
