According to SEAI, entrants to the 2010 Sustainable Energy Awards demonstrated energy savings of €17 million in just one year, with an additional €40 million in projected cost savings identified.

“Companies across Ireland have made huge strides in energy management in recent years resulting in significant savings on energy costs," said SEAI CEO J Owen Lewis. "We have seen that companies are not just adopting the latest sustainable energy technologies, but are embracing energy awareness programmes and a new way of thinking around energy management driven by staff and management alike. That is why the Sustainable Energy Awards are so important in recognising the efforts taken to reduce energy costs and emissions.”
