State company ESB is investing €10 million in a new unit that aids businesses in cutting their energy bills.
The group’s Smart Energy Services division will spend €10 million alongside clients in measures designed to cut consumption and boost efficiency, enabling them to save on bills and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
On Tuesday, the unit said that it had helped 50 Irish and British companies to cut €20 million from their bills over the past year and that it aims to help clients save a total of €50 million by 2018.
The division’s head, John Walsh, confirmed that it has contracts with Dublin and Cork airports company DAA, the Druid’s Glen golf club in Wicklow, the CHQ shopping mall close to the capital’s financial services centre, and Tesco Ireland, the local arm of the British supermarket chain.
Smart Energy Services helped Druid’s Glen cut consumption by 25 per cent, aided DAA in cutting 30 per cent off its bills and supported the CHQ in reducing its lighting costs by 60 per cent.
“We work with a whole range of different companies that use a lot of energy,” Mr Walsh said.
