SensorCIS and SEAI: Energy-Used Register for All Public Body Buildings


SensorCIS and SEAI: Energy-Used Register for All Public Body Buildings

The SEAI’s M&R system is being redeveloped throughout 2022. The new system will have an asset register through which Public Bodies and schools can link their meter points to actual buildings.

Dashboard Example in the Building Register

In order to help Public Bodies prepare for that, the SEAI is re-launching the Building Register system from 2020 so that the PBs can start collecting their data to be ready for the next reporting cycle.

SEAI asked Ultan Technologies, the company behind SEAI’s Monitoring & Reporting tool, to adjust the Building Register to capture different information, but also to provide its users with charts that will show the energy used per building.

"The Building Register system, which was developed by Ultan Technologies, had to be put in place over a short timeframe to meet specific project needs and demands. The team were able to deliver a functioning solution and associated supports in time to meet our project requirements and thus enabled the project to gather the data in a more effective and efficient manner. The system developed has provided the flexibility and functionality required to meet the varied needs of the end users."

Having achieved most of the 2020 targets, Public Bodies are now being asked to achieve even greater targets for 2030. This will involve reducing the carbon footprint of all of their buildings and activities. The building register will help these PBs measure their current footprint more effectively.

“Achieving the target set out for 2020 demonstrates real leadership and commitment towards improved energy efficiency by the public sector. Our focus now shifts to the next decade and the challenging targets for 2030. SEAI will be working closely with public bodies to help them achieve the changes necessary so they can rise to the challenge and meet the 2030 targets.”
