I would like to thank Dr Rory Monaghan and his team at NUIG and all those who supported me throughout the year and were part of this learning experience.” 

Lecturer of Energy Systems Engineering in Mechanical Engineering of the former NUI Galway scholar, Dr. Rory Monaghan, also stated that “On behalf of NUI Galway, we extend our congratulations to Jack Reardon from EIH2. We are delighted to witness green hydrogen gaining momentum through these recognitions and fully support the efforts and skills of a young generation, if anything, we need more!”

His fresh knowledge and energy are a great mix for our projects, and we look forward to fostering his skills and talent to build a path towards a Net Zero 2050 Ireland where green hydrogen plays a key role”.
