Meath-based clean tech company Hanley Energy is to create 10 new jobs on the back of winning business in the US, the company said today. The company was also named in the 2013 Global Top 10 of clean tech companies.

The data centre power and energy management company based in Stamullen, Co Meath recently opened offices in Texas and Los Angeles.

Hanley Energy also won a top global clean-tech award for a control solution that the US data centre industry has begun adopting. The company’s accolades include the Best in Cleanweb/IT category and being in the 2013 Global Top 10 of clean-tech companies at the Global Clean Tech Cluster Association.

Using a touchscreen interface, Hanley’s technology allows operators to reduce their critical switchgear costs and reduces the risk of downtime, which can cost up to €4,200 per minute.

It also offers them savings of between 5pc and 15pc on their running costs, while reducing CO2 emissions.

“It is by no means an easy task to turn a compelling technology-based idea into a viable business and we appreciate this recognition of our efforts,” said Clive Gilmore, co-founder of Hanley Energy upon winning the award.
