    SERVE Energy Week
    18-09-2012
    Ireland

    Description

    The SERVE project stimulated an investment of €10.5m in sustainable energy during a 4 year period.  Of the approx. 300 homes which completed upgrades approximately €200,000 was saved in energy consumption based on 2010 energy prices.  If this was level of savings was applied to all Irish homes the total savings would be €1bn per annum.  The rate of return for the investment in sustainable energy for houses in the SERVE region was 10% which is significantly better than the average rate of return in a deposit savings account.  With increasing fuel prices the rate of return will increase further making energy efficiency a sound investment

    The SERVE Energy Week will be held from the 1st to the 5th of October.  Further details are here http://servecommunity.ie/home/serve-conference-2012/ or contact Yvonne.Doyle@lit.ie for more information
