A LIMERICK energy savings company is set to expand, offering 17 new jobs in the process.

Averian Energy Solutions, based in the Hartnett Enterprise Acceleration Centre at LIT, provides software products and solutions focused on the renewable sector.

Now, thanks to a new energy tracker product bosses at the company have developed, the firm has announced it will create 17 jobs, mainly in sales, software development and business analysis.

The company has developed the ‘Averian Renewable Portfolio Management (RPM) application which will track, rank and value any renewable energy project in any jurisdiction.

Company CEO Colin Rogan said the new jobs have been made possible thanks to a venture capital funding release aimed at developing the product and taking it to new markets across the UK and USA.

He confirmed that although some of the jobs will be sourced in Dublin, a proportion will come to Limerick.

“We have worked with LIT for software developers before, so we would look at students coming out of here. We would hope to at least get a software developer and business analyst who has graduated from LIT,” he said.

Formerly a consultancy, Avarian Energy Solutions currently has offices in Dublin, Limerick, London and New York.
