Innovation Dublin and Airtricity's Licence to Innovate

Airtricity were delighted to be part of Innovation Dublin -- an annual festival dedicated to pursuing new ideas and fresh initiatives for Dublin and in our case, for the whole country.

We used Innovation Dublin as an opportunity to kick-start Airtricity's L2i, License to Innovate programme.  At Airtricity we want to be Ireland’s most innovative energy and utility company and we've launched ‘License to Innovate’, a new internal staff scheme, to facilitate this goal. It works very simply: staff submit an idea, it’s evaluated and if it has possibilities, a 'license to innovate' is issued.  This authorises the staff member to investigate the idea over two months, obtaining help and support from anyone within the business. All final reports are reviewed and are eligible for a reward.

We hope that this programme will lead to more innovative products and home energy services for our customers. So watch this space!
