Public Sector Energy Partnership
Partners

The SEAI Energy Partnership programme helps public sector bodies to save money, improve the environment and meet national obligations by making significant reductions in their energy usage.

Fourteen public bodies have committed to Energy Partnership Programmes with SEAI and lead the way as exemplars to achieve the 33% energy efficiency target for the Public Sector for 2020. Altogether they currently spend about €150 million a year on energy. Reducing their energy use by 33% by 2020 will mean an annual saving of €50 million by 2020 – or a cumulative saving of €275 million.

The Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources and SEAI’s Chief Executive formally launched the Partnership Programmes with these exemplar public bodies in Dublin Castle on 11th November 2010.

 

The 14 exemplar public bodies are:

  • An Garda Síochána
  • Bus Éireann
  • Department of Communications, Energy & Natural Resources
  • Department of Education & Skills
  • Department of Justice & Law Reform
  • Galway County Council
  • Health Service Executive
  • Irish Prison Service
  • Kerry County Council
  • Louth County Council
  • North Tipperary County Council
  • Railway Procurement Agency
  • The Defence Forces
  • The Office of Public Works
