School refit saves 48% of annual energy

Scoil Chuimsitheach Chiaráin, a post-primary school in An Cheathru Rua, Galway improved from a C3 Building Energy Rating to a B2 Building Energy Rating under the 2020 Schools Energy Retrofit Pathfinder.

The school is expected to save up to 48% on energy and a 52% reduction in CO2 emission after upgrades to the roof, the installation of a new LED lighting system and a new high efficiency boiler system.

During 2021, the focus of the pathfinder programme will be to carry out deep retrofit of the buildings and the use of renewable heat.
