Green Energy Solutions are delighted to have won Ireland's first publicaly tendered Energy Procurement Contact in conjunction with Codema and Dublin City Council. 

The eight year EPC will see Green Energy Solutions carry out energy upgrades across three of Dublin's busiest Sports and Leisure Centres. Upgrades made to lighting, ventilation, air-conditioning and many other aspects of the buildings will be monitored through the installation of a Building Management System. This system will allow Green Energy Solutions staff to manage the building's controls from the office. 

Original predictions stated that Green Energy Solutions would save Dublin City Council (DCC) €165,000 in annual energy savings, which at the end of the eight year contract would have saved DCC a whopping €1.3 million on energy bills alone. This would take a massive 30% off of the Sports and Leisure Centres energy bills. However, as we approach the end year one of eight, staff and GES have completed monthly reviews and noticed that the new technologies are performing much better than originally anticipated. It is estimated that energy bills will be reduced by 50% at the end of year one, almost doubling the originally predicted 30%.

This is the third time that Green Energy Solutions have acted as an ESCo (Energy Services Company).

Dublin City Council awarded Ireland’s first local authority Energy Performance Contract (EPC) project to NLGES. In conjunction with NLGES we will be working closely with the Dublin Energy Agency, CoDema. The project will save the council up to €100,000 on its energy and maintenance costs per year across three Dublin City Council Sports & Fitness Facilities.
