Anthony Glynn from Roscrea is shortlisted with his business partner, James Sherlock, from Athlone, for the 2014 David Manley Emerging Entrepreneur Awards, to be presented in January.
Anthony designed Dunk-E – which enables people to make their own electricity. In order to provide rural communities with electricity, off-grid micro generation remains the only feasible option. While researching Water Turbine Technology as part of his studies at the Tipperary Institute, Anthony found that there were major issues with current technologies. So he designed a novel, patent-pending hydro turbine range that produces substantial electricity from the natural flow of water in small rivers and streams. With over 9 years’ experience in the renewable energy sector, Anthony set up Ár-nuaTec with James and now have over €150,000 of advanced orders Ireland alone! www.arnuatec.com
