We offer a suite of integrated supports to help public bodies fulfil their legal obligation to report energy performance data through the public sector energy monitoring and reporting system.
Monitoring and reporting for public bodies
All public bodies are required to report energy data annually using our online monitoring and reporting system. The videos below will help you in filling out your report.
New user training
Each January, SEAI runs a series of hands-on, half-day training sessions for users with little or no M&R experience. You are encouraged to gather data in advance of the session and bring along a laptop, so you can complete as much of your submission as possible during the training session.
Activity metric masterclass and mentoring
If you believe that your choice of activity metric could be improved or you are considering using a non-standard activity metric, SEAI’s activity metric masterclass and mentoring service will support you through this process. The support comprises a half-day masterclass on non-standard activity metrics.
SEAI partners will also benefit from one-to-one mentoring support for 2 weeks after the masterclass to help you develop an approach for a bespoke activity metric, and an optional SEAI review of your proposal for a new activity metric, with feedback on the appropriateness of the proposed metric.
We held an activity metric masterclass on 28 January 2020. The next one is scheduled for October 2020 and will be available to book on Energy Link in due course: https://energylink.seai.ie/event
Data 'fix' support
The process for evaluating the robustness of M&R data is the data verification assessment (DVA) process. If you have a clearly-defined data quality problem (e.g. one that has been raised in a DVA report), you can submit your approach for fixing it to SEAI for review. Note that SEAI will not develop the solution to your data problem. SEAI M&R experts will review your approach and provide feedback to you, which will hopefully enable you to address the issue before the next reporting deadline.
To request this support, please complete this template describing your proposal and submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org. SEAI will endeavour to review your proposal as quickly as possible and to work with you to resolve your data for the next reporting cycle.
