On July 26 the launch of the FINESCE project in Dublin was a success and got lots of press coverage in Ireland. At the event, the Irish Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources commented on the funding by the European Union and the work was described by the ESB CEO.

The EU research project Finesce is one of the projects under the umbrella of the 'Future Internet Public-Private Partnership' program (FI-PPP). Finesce aims, among other goals, at establishing an internet based platform which enables energy enterprises to develop new IT-solutions.
