Codema presents Video about EPC
As part of the EESI2020 project, Codema has produced a live action and animation video which easily explains how the EPC process works step-by-step. It outlines the many benefits in choosing the EPC model for upgrading a building and provides the example of three leisure centres in Dublin – Ballymun, Finglas and Markievicz Sports and Fitness Centre.
Energy Performance Contracting is a form of energy building management with guaranteed energy savings, which are delivered by an Energy Service Company (ESCo). While the approach in upgrading buildings is quite new in Ireland, it is a well-established concept in Europe – especially in counties such as Czech Republic, Austria and Germany.
Codema produced this video as part of its involvement in the European Energy Services Initiative 2020 (EESI2020) to promote the concept in Ireland and to gain expertise from senior partners who have a proven track record in the implementing successful EPC projects.
As a result, Codema and Dublin City Council have now started the EPC process for three leisure centres. The work will be carried out in in the most cost-effective manner possible, while also enabling each building to become more energy-efficient and help the council to meet public sector energy targets.
