SERVE Conference – 18th November 2011

The SERVE Project, which started in November 2007, is focused on the creation of a region which demonstrates best practice in the field of sustainable energy.   It has supported energy upgrades in 400 buildings, facilitated the installation of a wide range of renewable energy systems, developed biomass heating systems and supported the development of the Eco Village in Cloughjordan.

This event will focus on how the impact of sustainable energy projects can be measured and monitored.  These impacts can be determined in many ways including

–          job creation and retention

–          economic activity including investment costs and monetary savings

–          energy savings and production. 

As investment in sustainable energy actions increases it is vital that we undertake assessments of the impacts of these actions.  Speakers at this event will profile results from a range of projects across Ireland and the EU where different systems and methodologies have been used to determine the impacts of the projects.
