All Annual Reports published by public bodies from 1st January 2011 onwards must include sections reporting the organisation’s energy usage and the actions taken to reduce consumption.
You need to report the total amounts of electricity, fossil fuel and renewable fuels your organisation used during the year. You may also provide further breakdown of consumption by end user and fuel type, however, this is not a mandatory requirement.
To facilitate the reporting process, SEAI and the Department have developed a simple reporting template and calculator tool for use with annual reports. The reporting template can be amended to fit organisational circumstances.
Some Frequently Asked Questions on the template and the annual reportingprocess are available here.
Tá roinnt ceisteanna coitianta ar an teimpléad agus ar phróiseas an tuairiscithebhliantúil ar fáil anseo.
The template is broken into three sections:
1. Overview of annual Energy Usage
Give a brief overview of the main energy users in the organisation, e.g. buildings, water services, vehicle fleet, public lighting etc.
Report the total annual energy consumption and a breakdown of the electricity, fossil fuel and renewable fuel sub-totals consumed in the year (in MWh or kWh).
2. Actions Undertaken during the year
List the main actions taken by the organisation to improve energy performance and give an estimate of the savings made through each action.
3. Actions Planned for the coming year
List the main actions that the organisation plans to implement in the coming year (and beyond) to improve energy performance and give an estimate of the predicted or targeted savings.
Actual energy consumption figures and estimates should be reported in either megawatt hours (MWh) or kilowatt hours (kWh).
Additional information on completing the annual report and using the template is available in our Frequently Asked Questions
