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 allows 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 year one comes to an end, staff and GES have completed monthly reviews and noticed that the new technologies are performing much better than originally anticipated. Year 1's calculations show an overall saving of 38% with many more upgrades still to be completed at the three leisure centre sites. The 38% savings have resulted in 1,626,761 kWhs and €172,000 saved across all three sites. As we continue upgrade works, we expect these savings to continually rise until all equipment is upgraded and energy saving technologies are implemented.
This is the third time that Green Energy Solutions have acted as an ESCo (Energy Services Company).
