Local & Regional Authorities
EE Opportunities are Money Saving Opportunities

SEAI, working with Local Authorities and Local Energy Agencies, has identified three key high consumption areas to help achieve significant reductions in their energy demand:

  • Water Services - use about 40-60% of the average Local Authority's energy consumption.
  • Public Lighting - represent a further 30-40% of the average Local Authority's energy consumption.
  • ICT - an area on the increase.

In 2011, the SEAI and the City and County Managers' Association surveyed the status of energy management in all 34 Local Authorities. The survey report can be downloaded here.

Energy Efficiency Working Groups are in operation to help all Local authorities identify, analyse and implement energy saving measures. These working groups bring real world solutions which help reduce consumption and save money.
