Energy Update

The energy and climate challenge remains topical in the political world and the media today but for most of us we saving energy (and water) as just something that needs to be done and do not rely on the latest report or the latest energy saving fashion accessory to do our day to day job and meet our objectives and targets.

2014 has seen the Minister announce the €70M fund for energy efficiency measures (€35M from private sources) and appointed a fund manager for this fund. Sustainable Development Capital Ltd. (SDCL) are the appointed fund managers and are open for business for those of you that are seeking capital to complete energy efficiency projects. This is especially useful for Energy Managers within large organisations who typically need to compete with projects closer linked to the organisations core objectives (such as production expansion or new equipment). This fund breaks that link but it does require a bit of education with your finance people.

Accessing money from this fund has the benefit that your project will be assessed independently by the fund managers to ensure it will “do what it says on the tin”. This de-risks the project for the find and also for the organisation. Energy professionals should familiarise themselves with this fund and also the assistances and guidance given by SEAI for organisations becoming involved in the “Exemplar Projects”

Target Energy again this year gives its warmest congratulations to two clients that have excelled in energy management over the recent past.  The Irish Naval Service were recently recognised by SEAI at the Energy Awards night in 2013 where they took the award for Energy Management in the Public Sector after demonstrating its commitment to energy reduction over an extended period of time. Also this year another Target Energy client, Amgen Inc has taken the Association of Energy Engineers International award for Corporate Energy Management.

We watch closely how the Energy Efficiency Directive is transposed over the coming months and hopefully see the intended effects coming down the line in improved energy performance.
