We need your help this Wednesday for Darkness into Light / Isabelle O’Neill
This is the seventh year that Electric Ireland has supported Pieta House with Darkness Into Light. This programme fits with our values as an organisation and our determination to continue to support the communities in which we live and operate in. We continue to be deeply moved by the number of staff who actively participate in the sponsorship by getting up to walk at the crack of dawn and equally, the stories people share about their experiences.
This year we will be launching a brand new campaign that shares the Power of Hope and we want your help. As part of this new campaign we will be advertising nationwide on billboards and bus shelters. What do we need from you?
We need 20 volunteers to be the face of, or a background extra in our outdoor poster. The photoshoot for this will be taking place at the below time and place: Where: Marlay Park
When: Wednesday 3rd April
Time: 7pm – 1am
If you are available and would like to be a part of the shoot please get in touch with us ASAP by emailing the sponsorship team: firstname.lastname@example.org .
Places will be on a first come first serve basis so please don’t hesitate in registering your interest. You will be helping us spread the power of hope with everyone who will see our billboard advertising.
Darkness Into Light has become much more than a fundraiser; it is now a global movement which touches the hearts and minds of people throughout Ireland and around the world with over 200,000 participants taking part last year.
This year’s event takes place at 4.15am, Saturday May 11th at venues nationwide and you can register to take part on www.DarknessintoLight.ie
Engineers Ireland Event -Towards Electric Aircraft: Research Perspectives and Opportunities / Orla Burke
Another exciting talk coming up in Engineers Ireland entitled “Towards Electric Aircraft: Research Perspectives and Opportunities”. Further details can be found on the Engineers Ireland website and below. Date Thursday, 25 April 2019
Time From 6:30 PM
Venue Engineers Ireland, 22 Clyde Road, Ballsbridge, Dublin 4 About the event
United Technologies Research Centre is at the forefront of the development of new technologies enabling the next generation of air-travel, which will see a transition to more electric and potentially, all electric aircraft.
In this presentation Dr Diarmaid Hogan and Dr Ray Foley will present an overview of the challenges facing the industry as it journeys towards an electric future and the potential solutions and technology requirements needed to achieve this ambitious goal. The transition from hydraulic and pneumatic systems to electric systems, and from conventional propulsion to hybrid-electric propulsion places UTC and UTRC in a unique position globally to deliver technologies supporting the future of air travel. This will be a key element in the contribution of the aerospace industry towards reducing greenhouse emissions, improve operating costs, lower noise, and improve reliability. About the speakers
