On Thursday 20th November, WYG Ireland was announced as winners of the 2008 Sustainable Energy Ireland Awards in the category of Energy Services or Supply Company.
This award recognises companies who have demonstrated reductions in energy consumption of clients utilising the services of energy service or supply companies.
The standard of this service provided by WYG Ireland is best demonstrated by examples of projects in progress and recently completed. Through energy and sustainability projects total savings of 133GWh in energy consumption and 50,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions have been achieved. WYG are the sustainability co-ordinators for the Howard Holdings Atlantic Quarter project in Cork South Docklands. The development will include a landmark tower with exceptionally low energy consumption, set to become the tallest building in Ireland and creating a flagship for sustainability and energy efficiency.
The Office of Public Works (OPW) have appointed WYG to develop and implement the energy efficiency programme "Optimising Power at Work" to achieve a 15% energy reduction. Other projects include sustainability co-ordination of the €700m D12/Nissan project for O'Flynn Construction and the Lough Mahon development and ongoing energy savings with Tesco, e3 energy bureau, UCC, Kerry Group and Roche Ireland.
