Energy Performance Contracting: A new approach to reducing energy costs and accelerating your organisation’s transition to a sustainable, low-carbon future – Workshop – 10 March 2020, Hotel Kilkenny, College Road, Kilkenny

Meeting the climate change aspirations outlined in Ireland’s Climate Action Plan will require a significant transformation of Ireland’s public and private sector buildings, and a considerable investment in the deployment of flexible, energy efficient solutions to the building stock.

This presents a huge challenge, but also a great opportunity for those tasked with the carbon transition and for the facilitators that contribute to enabling this change. It will require significant investment in the building sector to improve fabric, to upgrade the engineering systems and to integrate renewable technologies into the electricity grid. The task ahead will require building owners to mobilise and embrace this change, government to facilitate and incentivise it and the construction sector to build knowledge and develop capacity to deliver.

You are invited to a half day workshop in Kilkenny, explaining the concept of Energy Performance Contracting (EPC), discussing its role in the low-carbon transition and looking at the challenges and opportunities it presents for the building owners and stakeholders throughout the building sector supply chain.  The workshop will also give an overview of the Horizon 2020 funded NOVICE Project which aims to present a new business model that can provide a unique approach to enabling the transition to a sustainable low carbon economy.

Register here and come to meet with potential partners and collaborators and build long lasting business relationships!
