4 Annual Report 016 on Public Sector Energy Efficiency Performance 1. Executive Summary This is the third annual report on the energy efficiency performance of public bodies in Ireland. It is set in the context of Ireland s EU and national commitments and wider climate change goals, whereby a target of % energy efficiency improvement is to be achieved by all Irish public bodies by 00. Energy efficiency continues to be a national imperative driven by the multiple challenges of the need for security of energy supply, dealing with fluctuating energy costs and addressing global climate change. The 015 energy white paper, Ireland s Transition to a Low Carbon Energy Future, emphasised how energy efficiency will be at the centre of a transition to a clean, low carbon energy system by 050. Public bodies are required to report annual energy efficiency data to the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) which manages the reporting process on behalf of the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment 1 (DCCAE). The definition of public bodies in Ireland is broad and includes the civil service, local authorities, non- commercial state bodies/agencies, commercial state bodies, public health, justice and defence and educational bodies. Approximately 96% of all public bodies are now using the online national energy monitoring and reporting (M&R) system established by SEAI and DCCAE, in addition to half of all schools. The monitoring and reporting system provides an important record of how the public sector performed in 015. The key findings for 015 show overall improvements, for the second year running, in both the numbers of public bodies reporting and the total energy efficiencies achieved. The detailed data in this report for 015 cannot, however, be compared on a like for like basis to the data for 014 as the overall number of public bodies and schools reporting has increased significantly. For 015, 50 public bodies were requested to report data to SEAI, of which 7 submitted complete reports by the reporting deadline. In addition,,7 standalone schools were requested to report data, of which 1,79 submitted complete reports. This report comprises an analysis of the data submitted by these organisations on annual energy consumption, annual energy spend, energy savings achieved and energy efficiency performance in 015 against 00 targets. Efficiency gains have been achieved through implementation of thousands of diverse projects, ranging from structured energy management, building and facility upgrades, retrofits, changes in transportation, better energy procurement and through behavioural change in organisations. Current Position ENERGY EFFICIENCY IMPROVEMENT 1% 015 PUBLIC BODY REPORTING RATE 96% REPORTED IN 015 (excluding schools) % 00 NEEAP TARGET 50 TOTAL TOTAL ENERGY CONSUMED 89% OF THE TOTAL ENERGY CONSUMPTION ESTIMATED FOR THE SECTOR WAS ACCOUNTED FOR BY THE 7 PUBLIC BODIES AND 1,79 SCHOOLS THAT REPORTED 1 Reporting by public bodies in Ireland is required under Regulation 5(4) of SI The number of public bodies that are required to report may change each year due to organisational changes in line with government policy and legislation. 45 public bodies attempted to submit reports but data for some of these was incomplete and is not included in this report. An additional 11 schools attempted to submit reports but their data was incomplete and is not included in this report.

5 Annual Report 016 on Public Sector Energy Efficiency Performance Key findings from the analysis of the data reported by 7 public bodies and 1,79 schools for 015: Their combined total primary energy consumption was 9,4 GWh and their total energy spend was 588 million. This is estimated to represent 89% of the energy consumption of the sector. Annual primary energy savings of,44 GWh were achieved, which is equivalent to 548,000 tonnes of CO savings. These savings amount to a 1% improvement on business as usual, representing 154 million in cost savings for the sector in 015. While the level of reporting by public sector organisations is very strong in terms of compliance from the sector, the aim is that all public bodies consumption, including that of all schools, will be reported in future years. The compliance rate in 015 for public bodies was 96%, excluding schools. The compliance rate for schools of 48% is almost twice that of last year. It is considered a good response given the technical complexity of the data requirements. Overall, the energy performance reported is strong, at 1% improvement by 015. However there are still significant challenges ahead for public bodies to maintain this course of action and sustain continuous improvements in energy efficiency to meet the 00 targets. The annual M&R process is an enabling tool, providing public bodies with information that enables strategic decision-making towards the 00 target. In 015, improvements were made in both the numbers of bodies reporting and the total energy efficiencies achieved In 015, public bodies avoided energy use equating to 154 million Key Findings 9,4 GWh COMBINED ENERGY CONSUMPTION OF THE 7 PUBLIC BODIES AND 1,79 SCHOOLS WHO REPORTED WHICH AMOUNTED TO A TOTAL ENERGY SPEND OF 588m FOR 015, THE SAVINGS ACHIEVED WERE:,44 GWh ANNUAL PRIMARY ENERGY SAVINGS 1% ENERGY EFFICIENCY IMPROVEMENT ON BUSINESS AS USUAL 154m ENERGY SPEND SAVINGS FOR PUBLIC BODIES & SCHOOLS 548,000 tonnes CO EQUIVALENT SAVINGS

6 4 Annual Report 016 on Public Sector Energy Efficiency Performance. Background and Context.1 Policy and Legislative Requirements The Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) (01/7/EU) 4 sets out the policy roadmap for the period to 00 and brings forward legally binding measures to intensify Member States efforts to use energy more efficiently at all stages of the energy supply chain. The EU 00 Climate and Energy Framework sets out headline targets for the EU for 00 of at least a 40% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions (from 1990 levels) and increases in energy efficiency and renewable energy to 7%. SEAI, on behalf of DCCAE, established the M&R system to enable public bodies to track their energy efficiency performance towards the 00 targets. This M&R system is based on the groundwork put in place since 009 by SEAI to enable the public sector to meet their energy efficiency reporting requirements. This is illustrated in Figure 1. In Ireland, the National Energy Efficiency Action Plan (NEEAP) sets out several obligations on public bodies to lead the way in relation to energy efficiency, stating The public sector will improve its energy efficiency by % and will be seen to lead by example showing all sectors what is possible through strong, committed action.

7 Annual Report 016 on Public Sector Energy Efficiency Performance 5. The Monitoring and Reporting (M&R) Process Since 010, public bodies have been required by Irish statute to report on their energy usage and actions taken to reduce consumption. There are two key obligations for public bodies: i. Requirement to report energy management and performance data directly to SEAI each year in order to track progress towards the 00 target; ii. Requirement to publish an annual statement on energy performance. This statement must describe the actions it is taking, or has taken, to improve its energy efficiency and an assessment of the energy savings arising from those actions. The reporting methodology is illustrated below in Figure. A more detailed description is in Appendix 1. There are two key concepts applied: a) Application of activity metrics so that fluctuations in an organisation s level of activity that have an impact on energy consumption are taken into account in determining performance, and. Transition to Irish Water Up to the end of 01, local authorities were responsible for the provision of public water services, which accounted for approximately 40% of their combined energy consumption. In January 014, the water services assets transferred to Irish Water. In consultation with local authorities and Irish Water, SEAI developed an approach to track the energy performance of the sector before, during and after this transition. The key elements of this approach are: All savings made by local authorities arising from water services up to the end of 01 have been locked in and will be retained by local authorities for the purposes of tracking their progress against the 00 target. The water services sector must improve its energy performance by % by 00. The sector had made savings of 6% (provisional) up to and including 01. Data for local authorities and Irish Water is included within the same sub-sector breakdown in this report. b) Tracking energy performance and energy efficiency against a baseline so annual improvements can be assessed. Energy efficiency improvements therefore can be assessed against a business as usual scenario, and take into account organisational or infrastructural changes that impact on the energy requirements of the public body.

8 6 Annual Report 016 on Public Sector Energy Efficiency Performance.4 Analysis of Reporting by Public Bodies In Ireland the definition of public bodies is broad and encompasses a wide range of organisations, including the civil service, local authorities, non-commercial state bodies/ agencies, commercial state bodies, public health, justice and defence and educational bodies. In public bodies and,7 standalone schools were requested to report data to SEAI through the 015 reporting cycle. 6 The public bodies and schools that were requested to report during the 015 reporting cycle are broken down as follows: 50 public bodies, including 16 Education & Training Boards (ETBs), were requested to report data directly to SEAI using the reporting system. The 70 schools under the aegis of the ETBs were requested to report via their ETBs. Another,7 schools were requested to report directly as standalone entities. By the reporting deadline, 45 7 public bodies and 1,91 standalone schools had made submissions to SEAI. Some of these submissions were not fully complete and are not taken into account in the analysis of the data presented in this report. The data presented in this report is an analysis of 7 complete submissions from public bodies and 1,79 from standalone schools. The 7 complete submissions made by public bodies represents a compliance rate of 96%. SEAI estimates that the consumption of all of the organisations that reported represents over 89% of total public sector energy consumption. Figure shows the number of complete reports submitted from each sub-sector as a proportion of the total number of organisations in each sub-sector.

13 Annual Report 016 on Public Sector Energy Efficiency Performance Analysis of Energy Savings Achieved and Performance 4.1 Total Public Sector Primary Energy Savings (GWh) and Performance The combined savings in 015 of the public bodies and schools that submitted complete reports is,44 GWh 9 of primary energy, as illustrated in Figure 11. This amount is equivalent to a 1% improvement compared to what the business-as-usual energy consumption would have been had these organisations maintained their baseline efficiency levels 10. This is the primary indicator used for tracking the sector s progress towards the % target. Based on 015 data, a % improvement would be equivalent to,910 GWh of primary energy savings.

The business-as-usual energy consumption is the amount that each public body would have consumed in 015 had it not made the reported efficiency gains since its baseline. 10 The calculation of these results incorporates adjustments to the business-as-usual consumption for local authorities to account for the transition of water services to Irish Water.

14 1 Annual Report 016 on Public Sector Energy Efficiency Performance The analysis of the performance of the 7 public bodies (excluding standalone schools) that reported shows that: 48% are more efficient than their baseline and are on track for their 00 target. (Aggregate 015 savings of 1,907 GWh, which is equivalent to 47,000 tonnes of CO ) 4% are more efficient than their baseline but are not yet on the path to the 00 target. (Aggregate 015 savings of 565 GWh, which is equivalent to 18,000 tonnes of CO ) 18% are less efficient than their baseline. (Aggregate 015 deterioration in performance of 5 GWh, which is equivalent to 1,000 tonnes of CO ) Of the public bodies that reported, 8% have made improvements on their baseline. Taking both the savings and deteriorations into account, overall improvement for the public bodies is,44 GWh. This is equivalent to 548,000 tonnes of CO. The distribution of the performance results is shown in Figure 1.

Analysis of Total and Cumulative Public Sector Energy Savings ( ) The value of the energy savings reported for 015 is 154 million. As the total spend in 015 for all of the organisations that reported data is 588 million, this represents a saving of 6% in energy costs attributable to energy efficiency improvements. The value of the cumulative energy savings (up to 015) since their baselines reported by the public bodies and schools that submitted complete reports is 619 million. 154m PUBLIC BODIES, INCLUDING SCHOOLS, REPORTED SAVINGS WORTH 154M IN Sub-sector Primary Energy Savings (GWh) The breakdown of savings in primary energy (GWh) and percentage improvement on business as usual (BAU) by subsector is set out in the table in Figure 14.

16 14 Annual Report 016 on Public Sector Energy Efficiency Performance Making Progress The reports submitted this year demonstrate energy efficiency improvements achieved through the implementation of thousands of individual efficiency measures as part of an overall drive for energy efficiency by public sector organisations. Over half of the measures reported addressed lighting, heating, building fabric and structured energy management improvements. Other areas targeted were ICT systems, on-site renewables and control optimisation. The projects illustrated on these pages are a selection of over,400 projects and measures that the public sector has reported to SEAI in 015 and are representative of the diverse range of energy efficiency improvements which have been implemented across the country. While the overall level of project reporting has improved, many of the efficiency measures are individually of a small scale. Organisations will need to become more proactive in both undertaking energy efficiency projects of scale, and reporting on them, so that other public bodies can benefit from their experience. Note: Case study savings are total final consumption, all other figures in the report are primary energy consumption 1,191,980 kwh The DAA has completed a deep retrofit of the old Aer Lingus Head Office building, now Dublin Airport Central (DAC) One, at Dublin Airport, designed to LEED Platinum standard. The building has been completely refurbished to exceed building regulations with façade upgrades, new boilers and efficient heating ventilation and air conditioning system selection, which together with a fully integrated BMS, combine to achieve a potential 80% saving over the building s baseline energy consumption. Dublin Airport Authority (DAA) 6,600 kwh Letterkenny Institute of Technology has reduced its electrical energy consumption by 6,600 kwh (equivalent to tonnes CO₂) within its data centres on the Letterkenny and Killybegs campuses, through server consolidation with virtualization technology. Virtualizations allow for fewer physical servers, meaning lower power usage and reduced cooling requirements in the data centres. Rationalisation of the servers also facilitated the de-commissioning of a server room. Letterkenny Institute of Technology 40,500 In 015 Galway City Council upgraded a total of 400 street lights to best available technology LEDs. This project included the replacement of all mercury lamps and all other 400 W and 600 W lamps on the city network, together with the commencement of upgrades on a cluster basis. The project has resulted in annual energy savings of 5,000 kwh, equivalent to 14 tonnes of CO and has reduced the City Council s annual electricity costs by 40,500. Galway City Council

17 Annual Report 016 on Public Sector Energy Efficiency Performance 15 8% The Office of the Director of Corporate Enforcement is the lead tenant in a 15-year-old, five-storey-over-basement office building. Together with four other tenants, it established a Green Team in 014, in response to the OPW 'Optimising Work' programme, to implement an energy management plan. This has delivered a total of 419,000 kwh of energy savings since 01. Through a variety of measures, including reducing hot water consumption, reviewing heating and air-conditioning settings, and holding energysaving workshops for staff, the tenants have lowered the building s energy consumption by 8%. In 014 the building won an award in the airconditioned building category. Office of the Director of Corporate Enforcement, Dublin 0% With the assistance of its SEAI energy advisor, this recently-built primary school has been able to reduce energy consumption by 0% when compared with the same period in 014, through low-cost and no-cost measures. Behavioural change programmes and optimisation of existing heating and lighting systems contributed to a reduction of,90 kwh in energy consumption, equivalent to 5.8 tonnes of CO and saving the school over 1,845. Gaelscoil Chaladh an Treoigh, Limerick 16,0 kwh Existing metal halide lights in the main pool hall in Nenagh Leisure Centre, which is operated by Tipperary County Council, were upgraded to LED fittings with an expected service life of 1 years. The installation has resulted in savings of 16,0 kwh per annum or a.5% reduction in energy consumption and is saving the County Council over,750 on annual running costs. The CO saving equivalent from the project is 9 tonnes. Tipperary County Council 19,00 165,700 kwh University College Dublin carried out LED lighting upgrades in the Architecture and Planning buildings at its Richview campus, which together with smart lighting controls, have delivered campus electrical savings of 15%, in addition to improving aesthetics and light quality in the studios. An inefficient oil boiler was also replaced with a high efficiency condensing boiler which has resulted in significant comfort improvements and reduced gas usage by 14%. The project has reduced annual energy costs by 1,800. University College Dublin The ESB depot building in Inchicore is a typical example of the ESB s older building stock in need of modernisation and energy saving upgrades. Heat losses through the exterior façade were addressed with high performance triple-glazed windows combined with 100 mm external wall insulation and 150 mm roof insulation. The energy performance rating of the depot has been upgraded from BER G to BER C. In addition to noticeably improving staff comfort levels, the energy savings of 105,775 kwh are worth up to 19,00 annually. Electricity Supply Board (ESB), Dublin

18 16 Annual Report 016 on Public Sector Energy Efficiency Performance 5. Towards Sub-sectoral Performance The analysis of the data reported by 7 public bodies and 1,79 schools shows that the annual energy efficiency savings at 015 represents an overall efficiency gain of 1%. Notwithstanding this strong result, there are significant challenges ahead for public bodies to maintain this course of action and sustain continuous improvements towards 00. The annual energy efficiency savings to date have been steady with 1% achieved. However, achieving the remaining 1% is likely to be more challenging Figure 15 illustrates the 015 position of each sub-sector with respect to the target.

20 18 Annual Report 016 on Public Sector Energy Efficiency Performance 5. Performance of Public Bodies SEAI recognises that building a complete energy profile for organisations is an iterative process that will take time as public bodies are in a better position to submit improved data each year. This work is ongoing and 015 saw a significant increase in the numbers of public bodies that submitted complete reports. Also, following the initial roll-out of the system to schools in 014, there are now 1,79 schools that submitted complete reports.
