downloadThe Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) recently launched the EXEED (Excellence in Energy Efficient Design) Certified Program, a new management framework which complements the Irish Energy Efficient Design Standard I.S.399. Up to €250,000 per applicant has been made available in 2016 for businesses or organisations undertaking a building retrofit, facility or process upgrade which follows the EXEED principles to maximise energy efficiency.


Commenting, John O’ Sullivan, Head of Development at SEAI said: “EXEED helps the owners and operators of facilities to continuously achieve energy savings.   It also benefits investors by helping them identify projects with valuable green credentials and lower financial risks.  At the same time service suppliers can adopt an innovative approach to boost their quality and profitability.”


O’ Sullivan added: “There is already great interest in EXEED. In addition to providing new energy savings that will help towards Ireland’s current and future national energy targets, it will create new business development opportunities with export potential for the Irish energy and engineering services industry.  It will play to Ireland’s strengths in energy management.”
