Reduce Your Use Initiative

Date: 12 Dec 2022

Public Bodies to lead by Example

Government has taken the decision that all public bodies will continue to lead by example in lowering energy consumption, by signing up to the Reduce Your Use Initiative and implementing actions to reduce public sector energy consumption by 5-10%, and up to 15% in buildings.

The Reduce Your Use campaign for December is highlighting our Christmas Power Down and helping to reduce the likelihood of any blackouts this winter, by minimising the strain on the nation’s electricity network at times of peak demand

Energy Performance Officer’s in local authorities are responsible for ensuring actions to produce energy consumption in their organisations, and for monitoring and tracking progress achieved.

DECC and SEAI have developed various supports for public bodies to help implement and track these savings which can be accessed by signing up to the Reduce Your Use energy efficiency campaign.
