Staff awareness days will also take place in each Municipal District in September.Said John: “This is an important part of our Energy Management approach where we have set out the Council’s policy in relation to energy and put in place objectives and targets for energy performance improvement over the next number of years. “We have identified a number of Significant Energy Users or SEU’s within the organisation including Public Lighting, our Offices and Cultural Services Buildings, Fire Stations, Landfill sites and our Transport Fleet.“An important part of this process is about identifying opportunities for improving energy performance and we believe that our staff are well placed to help identify these opportunities.”John added: “We have conducted energy assessments on a number of buildings and we are putting in mechanisms to monitor consumption and this data will be analysed regularly and used to develop performance indicators. However, our staff have a very important role to play in all of this and for this reason our Energy Awareness Campaign will be critical to our success.”Cllr Terence Slowey, Cathaoirleach, told Donegal Daily that he is delighted to see this initiative being launched and believes that it is an important step within the context of meeting the targets set at national level.“This campaign is an important part of the Council’s energy management system and the Council is continuously strivng to deliver savings and efficiencies in energy consumption and this initiative is important if we are to achieve our targets of a 33% reduction in energy use by 2020,” said Cllr Slowey. “I am delighted to see the Council leading out on this initiative as it will no doubt be an exemplar for other businesses both in the public and private sector.”WATT A CHALLENGE!
