Charlie spoke at the publication of a new SEAI study investigating how to unlock the potential for energy efficiency across the Irish economy. The seminar presented new insights including the scale of the energy efficiency opportunity; the costs and benefits of 2020 target achievement; and policy options based on a new analysis of investor behaviour and decision-making.

The launch of the report was accompanied by presentations from exemplar projects from the SEAI energy efficiency programmes and a panel discussion exploring how we might accelerate the pace of retrofit in Ireland. New insights into the attitudes of investors will be presented and the multiple benefits of energy efficiency explored.

  2. 2. Introduction  Dawn Meats & Sustainable Practices  Starting point  Development of Energy Management System  Innovative Project  How we unlocked energy efficiency
  3. 3. Background
  4. 4. Dawn Meats Group & Sustainable Practices • Sustainable Practices – Core of Dawn Meats Group ethos • Value Chain & Quality Product • Environmental benefits • Cost Savings
  5. 5. Energy efficiency reduces environmental impact
  6. 6. Energy Management -15% -10% -5% 0 +5% Under control Energy usage high again - Where’s that last audit? Here we go again! KWH Usage High = Energy Audit
  7. 7. Moving Forward •Engaged with energy technology providers •Site Teams •Personnel trained – SEAI Energy Map •Set objectives for each site
  8. 8. Sustainability Teams PEOPLE Developing a sustainability efficient culture TECHNICAL Understanding your energy usage and how to control it ORGANISATIONAL Management commitment Balance all 3 for a successful system Sustainability Teams
  9. 9. Unlocking Efficiencies -20% -25% -15% -10% -5% 0 +5% Site commit to energy plan Low Hanging Fruit - Housekeeping first As more of the plan implemented, reductions are locked in. Improvements are sustained, becomes company culture New equipment is saving more energy !
