DIGITAL HUB SIGNS PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT WITH SEAI

The Digital Hub has signed a partnership agreement with SEAI to affirm its commitment to energy efficiency. The Digital Hub Development Agency has now become a member of the Public Sector Energy Partnership Programme through which it will lead by example in its contribution to the Public Sector energy efficiency target of 33% energy efficiency savings.

The Programme helps public bodies to save money, improve the environment, and meet national energy saving obligations.

      As a first-step, The Digital Hub will conduct an Energy Audit of active buildings on its campus with a view to scoping an Energy Performance Contract for multiple buildings. The Digital Hub will also establish and implement a structured energy management programme and an action plan for energy efficiency projects to deliver energy savings in the short and long term.

Based in the historic Liberties area of Dublin city centre, The Digital Hub is an enterprise cluster for growing technology companies. Home to over 70 established businesses and employing almost 750 people, The Digital Hub is the largest cluster of digital media, technology and internet businesses in Ireland, providing a space for indigenous enterprises such as Bizimply, Good Travel Software, Sonru and Xwerx to scale and grow. Major global companies like Eventbrite, Lonely Planet and Software AG are also based in The Digital Hub along with industry organisations such as NDRC, Silicon Republic and Tyndall National Institute. The Virgin Media Dublin International Film Festival is also based at The Digital Hub.
