Public sector energy efficiency performance report 2023

Public bodies are required to report annual energy data to us every year. We manage the reporting process on behalf of the Department of the Environment, Climate and Communications (DECC). This is the tenth year we have published an annual report on the energy performance of public bodies in Ireland. The 2023 report covers data for 2022 and is set in the context of Ireland’s EU and national commitments and wider climate change goals, whereby a 51% reduction in energy-related greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and a 50% improvement in energy efficiency is to be achieved by all Irish Public Bodies by 2030.
