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.


The M&R Helpdesk provides frontline email and telephone support to public bodies and schools.

​New user training

A series of hands-on, half-day training sessions will be run 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.

Partnership support

Partners can call upon your Partnership Support Manager (PSM) for expert advice that is tailored for your organisation. However, your PSM will provide ad hoc support only and will not report data on your behalf, or sign-off on your data on behalf of SEAI.

Public sector energy efficiency conference

The annual conference has become the key focal point for learning, planning and networking amongst the energy contacts in the 350+ public bodies. Registration is now open on Energy Link. This event is open to all Public Sector bodies.

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.

Data 'fix' support

The process for evaluating the robustness of M&R data is the data verification assessment (DVA) process, which is undertaken after the reporting deadline. 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 reporting deadline, and before the next DVA cycle.

To request this support, please complete this template describing your proposal and submit it to MandR@seai.ie no later than 1 February 2019. You will receive feedback from SEAI by 1 March 2019.

Date: Submissions no later than 1 February 2019
