Cork County Council for being the first Local Authority in Ireland to develop and implement an Energy Management System that is fully certified to ISO 50001. It was a challenging task given the diversity of services provided by a County Council which range from road maintenance and street lighting to running leisure centres and libraries. They have provided a roadmap for other Local Authorities to follow in their footsteps.
