Dublin City University (Completed Jan 2010)
McKeon Group surveyed, designed and installed energy saving technologies in 5 buildings throughout the DCU Campus. The project was in an effort to reduce DCU’s Carbon Footprint as per the goal of the e3 Project – “To reduce carbon emissions in our buildings by 10% by 2010.”
The buildings involved in this project were The LIRC (Library), Computer Applications Building, Multi-Storey Car Park, Henry Grattan Building and the Old Larkfield Residences Block.
We utilised a vast number of technologies in each building ranging from Power Conditioning to T5 Adaption to Automation & Control processors. McKeon Group Secured a SEEEP grant from Sustainable Energy Ireland (SEI) for this project, which covered 60% of the overall cost for the University.
The savings from this project amounted to a reduction of 374,850kWh of electricity or over 200 tonnes of Co2 per year. The Return on Investment (ROI) was just 17 months (Excluding Grant Contribution).
