Kildare County Council as part of its Climate Innovation Fund has provided a grant of € 10,000 to CRI for the development of a filtration system for Domestic heating systems using fossil fuels. This project is being done in conjunction with Maynooth University under its Project Live community initiative. Further details of this project will be provided as it nears completion.
The Celbridge, Leixlip Municipal district of Kildare provided funds which allowed us to partner with Supporting the Hidden Homeless community group in Celbridge. The fund of € 2,107 allow us to build eight desktop computers with full GPIO for education and Internet of Things development. CiviQ provided € 1,000 so that high quality HDMI monitors could be included. The computers were installed in the local Celbridge Community School.
Waterways Ireland awarded a grant of 1,000 to CRI for the installation of Air Quality Monitors on or near waterways throughout Ireland. This allows us to install 8 extra monitors onto our network. This work has been much interrupted by Covid restrictions. We expect to complete the project shortly.
This is an ongoing project to install Air Quality Monitors connected to the Sensor Community network. The work is a citizen science project that provides local information on air quality to communities across the globe. You can see this information on the link on our home page.
