We welcomed more than 4,200 visitors to the SEAI Energy Show last week. The Show, which took place in the RDS on April 18th and 19th, showed the vibrancy of the energy sector and the pace of innovation, as new energy saving technologies come to the market.

150 businesses and 4,200 visitors gather at SEAI Energy Show

Central to this innovation was Wilo Ireland and its Wilo Stratos-Maxo pump which won the ‘Overall Product of Show Award’ and ‘Best Innovative Product’. The Dublin-based company specialises in intelligent energy efficient pumps and systems for residential, public and commercial properties. The Wilo Stratos-Maxo pump has a number of applications, including; underfloor heating, heating through radiators and ceiling cooling. It is a smart pump designed for system efficiency and user-friendliness.

The SEAI Energy Show Product of the Show Awards have championed innovative product development, especially those incorporating smart energy solutions, for many years. Considerable investment in R&D, coupled with rapidly changing technology, have seen a wave of pioneering products and systems featured at the Show. The winners all share a passion for a clean energy future and are providing consumers with exciting new energy products that will help us use less and use clean.
Paul Martin, Programme Manager at SEAI and Chairperson of the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers

The ‘Best Product of the Future’ award recognises pioneering concepts at prototype or development stage. This award went to EASi for their EWindow, an artificial 3D daylight system designed to mimic daylight, which has a positive impact on physical health and mood.

As more and more businesses advance in energy efficiency, many are looking to renewable energy solutions to further improve their sustainability credentials. Winner of the ‘Best Renewable Product’ was Mitsubishi Electric for its Ecodan CO2 Heat Pump which helps users to extract energy from outside to heat buildings.

In addition to the 150 exhibitors in the RDS, the Show featured; an extensive electric vehicle showcase, live retrofit demonstrations, an international markets pavilion, an energy industry pavilion, multiple networking events and an array of free briefings and workshops.
