Public sector energy efficiency performance report 2022

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 ninth year we have published an annual report on the energy performance of public bodies in Ireland. It 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

Public Body energy performance data

It is now possible for anyone to access energy data for public bodies and schools through our website. The data includes:

  • energy consumption broken down by fuel type;
  • progress towards their 50% energy efficiency target;
  • comments reported by public bodies on their progress;
  • details of the energy-saving projects reported to SEAI.

The data is available on-screen in graphical and tabular formats and may also be downloaded in pdf and spreadsheet format.
