NLCE have developed a strong relationship with The Watershed Gym in Kilkenny in recent years. Having first devised an Energy Reduction Programme for the leisure centre, NLCE subsequently went on to save The Watershed €75,000 per year on energy bills through the completion of an energy audit. These works did not interrupt business opening hours and are helping the centre meet its 33% carbon reduction target. Particular areas which saw a significant decrease in energy load and contributed towards savings were the external pitch lighting, indoor lighting through reinforcement of better controls and pump upgrades to more efficient models.
