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.
The next training sessions will be held in January 2020.
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.Find out more about partnership
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. This year over 600 delegates attended the conference!2019 Public Sector Conference
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.
The next activity metric masterclass will be held in February 2020. If you need support prior to then, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
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
