Energy Efficiency Directive
In 2009, Ireland set a target to improve its energy efficiency by 20% by the year 2020. This target was set in responds to the requirements of the EU Energy Efficiency Directive 2012/27/EU. The Government set a more ambitious target of 33% for the Public Sector, thus requiring the Public Sector to take on a leadership role towards the achievement of the national target.
As a result, TII has been assessing energy consumption and efficiency with a view to identifying options which might be pursued towards meeting the 2020 target. This review identified that 45% of TII’s overall electricity consumption is consumed on traffic route lighting on national roads under TII’s direct control. The information note will identify steps being taken to reduce energy consumption on the national road network.
