Public Sector bodies learn about new developments in energy efficiency policies, technologies and the strategic supports available to them, at this annual conference hosted by SEAI.

Thursday 3rd June, 2021

Online Conference

Decarbonising the Public Sector

The new Public Sector targets of 50% energy efficiency and 50% energy related CO2 emission reduction targets by 2030 are ambitious and challenging. Combined with the target to upgrade all public buildings to BER B, the new Clean Vehicle Directive and other climate action goals, it is clear that even greater commitment to planning, resourcing and financing projects will be required.


As the Public Sector embraces these challenges and begins strategically planning for the solutions, this event is aimed at leadership in each sector but also at everyone involved in the journey ahead.
