Certification Europe clients scoop the awards at the 10th Annual Sustainable Energy Awards
For the past ten years the Sustainable Energy Awards have encouraged, recognised and rewarded outstanding excellence in energy management in the industrial, commercial, community and public sectors.
The awards focus on individuals, groups and organisations who demonstrate a commitment to energy management as part of their overall management structure and they have provided an opportunity for organisations, regardless of size, to gain public recognition for their achievements in reducing energy use and emissions.
Last week at a star studded award ceremony three of Certification Europe’s clients scooped four awards in recognition of their outstanding energy management performance.
Dawn Meats were the winners of the Innovation award for their work in using heat transfer to fulfil 90% of their hot water needs by heat recovery. This has given them savings of approximately €350,000 per annum.
The Irish Naval Service won the Public Sector award with their ISO 50001 Energy Management system. This system has helped them, and the Irish tax payer, save €5 Million in the last 5 years, as well as 20,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide.
Finally Diageo claimed two awards, one in the Leadership category and one in the Industry award section. This is recognition that St. James’s Gate Brewery is now best in class in energy efficient brewing, delivering savings of about €2.5 Million on their production of approximately 2.5 Million pints of Guiness per day. Diageo has since applied this methodology to other breweries throughout their network yielding substantial savings outside of Ireland.
We would like to take this chance to wish all of our clients who entered the SEAI awards a very well done for all their achievements in energy management.
