Commit to energy management

The Partnership Programme is our most comprehensive support package for large organisations. It is offered in return for your commitment to energy management. You will work with our experts to assess the saving potential in your organisation. We will guide you to develop, execute, and maintain energy reduction plans. In return, you commit to driving the programme forward, and aim for year on year savings of over 3%.

What is involved

First, there must be senior management commitment to implement your energy strategy. This is done through both board level support and a signed commitment. What is expected once your organisation has made this commitment?

  • Develop a structured Energy Action plan for at least 3% improvement each year
  • Review your energy management programme annually
  • Report annually on energy efficiency initiatives and savings made
  • Engage meaningfully with your Programme Support Manager and other appointed energy experts
  • Take energy efficiency into consideration in your procurement practices

Our core support strands are in energy management, strategy planning, and energy assessments. A Partnership Support Manager is also appointed to you. They are an independent energy consultant funded by the SEAI to assist you. They will engage with you on a high level to deliver long term savings.

Current partners

Many of the largest energy consuming public sector organisations are working with us to maximise their energy efficiency. We currently work in partnership with over 90 public sector organisations across the country. These organisations have set the example, and you now have the opportunity to benefit from their success.

"We found the structured approach from SEAI and particularly their energy advisors and supports to be very effective in helping us to deliver cost savings. Commitment of employees throughout the company, led by local and central energy teams has proved to be the key to unlocking energy and cost savings. We’re confident that more savings can be achieved now that we have a system in place.”
Paddy Doherty, Chief Executive Dublin Bus
