EU Sustainable Energy Week

Show you Care! Be Energy Aware!

Energy Awareness Day on Thursday 16th June:

We all know the benefits of reducing our energy consumption both in terms of environmental sustainability and cost savings but how many of us really know all the little tips that will help us become more energy efficient in our daily lives?

Why not pop along to Louth County Council’s Energy Awareness Day on Thursday 16th June in Town Hall, Dundalk from 10 am to 2pm and take part in shaping Europe’s Sustainable Energy future.

Enter the “Watt Challenge” to see how you can generate electricity by Pedal Power and you could be lucky as there are prizes for the best scores for men and women as well as random prizes drawn for those who participate.

While there, take a few minutes to visit the “Watts it all About?” interactive stand which allows you to see at first hand how much energy our everyday appliances consume and how savings can be made.  Mentors will be on hand so don’t be shy about asking questions from the advisors who have a wealth of knowledge to help us save energy in the home and the workplace. 

Louth County Council now has a dedicated European and Sustainable Energy Department who are hosting this event and are always happy to deal with any queries or indeed ideas you may have for Sustainable Energy Management.  For more information email or phone 042-9353130.

Reduce your household and your community carbon footprint by learning how to manage your energy better!

Energy Savings at Louth County Council:

It is timely, during EU Sustainable Energy week, that Louth County Council’s Corporate Buildings and Facilities Management Service and the Sustainable Energy Office have combined their efforts to fit new LED lighting in the Council’s Car Park outside Millennium Hall, Dundalk.

The New 35-Watt LED light bulb replaces the original 100-Watt Son bulbs, reducing energy usage by 65% and saving around €1,600 a year in electricity usage.

In addition this will also help Louth County Council achieve its nationally set 2020 Energy and Emissions targets ( to reduce energy consumption by 33% by 2020) by providing energy savings of over 8,300kWh per annum and a reduction in the Councils carbon footprint by 4.3 tonnes each year.
