We deal with many big name clients who have multiple sites around Ireland and abroad. The problem with running multiple sites is that it can be tough to keep track of energy consumption in each building. Many businesses on this scale will now have energy commitments and targets that are important to be seen to be reaching. Energy costs also eat in to your profit margins and that's not ideal.
Green Energy Solutions are helping some of the biggest names in retail and business to reduce their overall energy consumption and therefore claim back a large percentage of that profit margin and meet to energy targets. We have all the experience in the world at improving energy efficiency without impacting on facility operations. Green Energy Solutions will not require you to cease trade for any time while works are being completed. We will show you how we can exploit any opportunities from processes to harness waste heat for site demand and also monitor and reduce energy usage across all sites to compare best and worst performing site.
Green Energy Solutions have worked with Lidl on 50+ stores in Ireland. Having completed numerous energy audits, energy upgrades and refurbishments across numerous sites around the country, Green Energy Solutions also installed Ireland's largest PV Array in Lidl's Gorey store in 2016. This 100KWp solar panel is expected to save Lidl Gorey €12,500 per annum on energy bills through the generation of 90,000 KWh per annum.
GES identified energy saving opportunities which would result in annual energy cost savings of €1M resulting in a payback of just under 3 years. We developed a sustainable development strategy for the Group which encompassed energy and water conservation, waste disposal and recycling, and renewable energy technologies. GES is also acting as the ‘Energy Efficient Design (EED)’ expert as the Group is applying for ‘Excellence in Energy Efficient Design’ (EXEED) certification from the SEAI at its four city centre stores, including its flagship store in Grafton St, Dublin.
Our first project was in Tramore, Co. Waterford where the store required some remedial works. Since then, it is clear that Supervalu are happy with the services of GES and NLCE provide as we were hired to carry out 20+ jobs in other stores nationwide. These jobs ranged in everything from an energy survey to the refurbishment of old stores and fit-outs of new ones.
The desire of the Musgrave’s Group to be energy efficient is one that is to be admired. Supervalu’s constant giving back to the community in the form of Tidy Towns, Local sports team sponsorship and the Community Heroes initiative shows that they do what is best for the community.
As part of Eason’s capital investment programme which has already seen the company refurbishing and upgrading it’s flagship O’Connell Street store, followed by the refurbishment of the basement area, a new destination children’s department. Having completed full refurbishment works on a number of buildings as well as an extensive collection of Energy works on a number of stores, Easons have definitly become a leading example of an Energy concious client.
The refurbishment of the O’Connell Street store basement was carried out in 2017, creating a child-friendly atmosphere. The ductwork was painted to add a pop of colour as well as create a colour coded system that children could follow themselves.
This store was shortlisted for Retail Building of the Year in 2017.
GES carried out works in Teagasc Dairyboard Biology and Chemistry Laboratories in 2013. The building in Moorepark, Co. Cork required a Mechanical Upgrade including a heating and AC refurbishment, a centralised Freezer / Cryogenic storage facilities and many much more. At a later stage, the ventilation and AC system labratories were also upgraded. Up to this time, chilled beams and low velocity ventilation schemes in the existing laboratories where air movement and test sample contamination had been causing problems. Mixed mode ventilation for the cryogenic/ freezer storage were then introduced to reduce risk to valuable research samples. As this research was an important function to Teagasc, it was imperative that these changes had been made.
GES have carried out works ion Teagasc offies in Carlow, Waterford, Mullinavat, Wexford and Athenry.
Office of Public Works
Green Energy Solutions have carried out a number of projects on behalf of the OPW including the extension to EPA H.Q in Wexford, a library upgrade in the same building and an assessment of the Building Energy Rating (BER). Green Energy Solutions also carried out two office refurbishments in OPW buildings - one in Balbriggan Business Campus, and the second in OPW Athlone.
Our engineers in 2016 devised an energy report for Iveagh House which acts as the headquarters for the department of foreign affairs. Earlier that same year, carried out a conditional report at Bridewell Garda Station. From this, the facilities manager could budget as to when replacement equipment and technology would be required to remain operating at full efficiency.
