Dundalk is a global leader through its’ development of the Dundalk Sustainable Energy Zone project. Dundalk has set out to provide a showcase of some of the innovative technologies, policies and practices that will be needed in order to develop sustainable energy communities in Ireland and elsewhere. We have installed innovative energy-efficiency technologies in a wide range of buildings across the Dundalk Sustainable Energy Zone. The zone in a four-square kilometre area, stretching from the Hospital and Hoey’s Lane to the Fairways Hotel, and from Blackrock Road to Mullagharlin Road.
As a result of all the projects completed and underway it is estimated that 5,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide has been saved. SEAI will continue to work with all local and national stakeholders to continue to build capacity within the Dundalk community, and assist other communities who may be interested to become a sustainable energy community.
