NLCE staff have carried out a number of energy efficiency projects in Claremorris Leisure Centre. Most recently, our engineers recommended the installation of a Solar P.V array on the roof of the building which would generate some of the building's electricity and therefore reduce billing costs. Although there was a higher initial investment required, long terms savings will be achieved. Claremorris received an energy grant for these works which reduced the overall payback period and reduced the initial investment.
We also devised a CHP report for the building. This was after a thorough feasibility study concluded that the installation should be recommended to the facilities manager as savings were to be made after initial investment. Shortly after, we applied for a grant on behalf of Claremorris Leisure Centre to LASPP (Local Authority Swimming Pool Programme) which would also help Claremorris with the installation of this CHP unit and Solar P.V Array.
