After conducting a comprehensive energy audit, Lawler Sustainability helped Portarlington Leisure Centre secure €300,000 in energy grant funding to improve the facility.
Energy Grant Consultancy
Lawler Sustainability has worked with Portarlington Leisure Centre since 2011.
Our agreement began with a comprehensive energy audit of the centre to identify areas of improvement.
We then provided our expert SEAI grant consultancy services and guided Laois County Council in successfully securing government funding through various energy grants.
These grants allowed us to address the building performance issues and opportunities discovered by the initial energy audit.
Under our guidance, Portarlington Leisure Centre has completed almost €300,000 worth of energy upgrades since 2011.
These energy upgrades include:
- Boiler replacement and domestic hot water system reconfiguration
- Pool temperature control integration with a Building Management System (BMS)
- Pool water quality and turnover improved with the installation of a UV disinfection system
- Pool pump energy consumption and speed control
And many more!
