The 5Cube

Renewable Energy Smart Feature, Dublin, Ireland

  • The 5Cube is a renewable energy design feature, which was launched on Friday, 19th June 2015 by Dublin City Council and Codema at Hanover Quay in Dublin’s Docklands. This new landmark is co-funded by Ace through the INTERREG IVB NWE programme and is a physical interpretation of how much oil Ireland is consuming every five minutes. It is the first installation of its kind to send a powerful message about Ireland’s dependency on fossil fuels and the need to switch to renewable energy sources.

    The 5Cube has been constructed with durable, shiny black glass to convey the concept of oil.  It is self-sufficient through solar photovoltaic panels powering the screen and an LED illumination. It also features a giant kaleidoscope on one side and a periscope on the other, both of which show the reflection of the sky as a constant reminder of our ever-changing weather which delivers renewable sources like solar and wind energy. Inscribed on the 5Cube is text saying ‘We consume this cube of oil in Ireland every five minutes’.
