Cork County Council became the first Local Authority in Ireland to achieve ISO50001 certification of our Energy Management System (EnMS) in May 2016. This certification covers the entire scope of Cork County Council’s annual €7million energy spend and 41 million kWh of energy consumed each year.
Cork County Council has been implementing an EnMS since 2011 when they signed a partnership agreement with the national authority. This EnMS has proved to be very successful and can be directly attributed to 3.1 million kWh of energy saved and they are on target to achieve their goal of 33% energy efficiency by 2020.
To ensure that energy efficiency will continue to be a priority for the organisation an Energy Policy was signed in September 2015. This Policy sets out the County Council’s commitment to energy efficiency into the future.
Cork County Council is a member of Energy Cities since 1995
