Complete report
Annual energy statement
This annual energy statement contains all of the information specified by SEAI for inclusion in an annual statement on a public body’s energy efficiency, as required under Regulation 5(5) in SI 426 of 2014. The performance results and other data published in this statement are based on data reported by HSE for 2020 through SEAI’s public sector energy monitoring & reporting (M&R) system.
TPER and TFC
Almost all energy values shown above are expressed as primary energy, or total primary energy requirement (TPER). This is a measure of all the energy consumed by the organisation and accounts for the energy that is consumed and/or lost in transformation, transmission and distribution processes. The savings values shown for specific named energy projects are also expressed as total final consumption (TFC), which does not account for the energy consumed and/or lost in transformation, transmission and distribution processes.
Energy savings since energy efficiency baseline (Deterioration in energy efficiency since baseline)
The percentage saving (or deterioration) shown is the percentage improvement (deterioration) in the energy performance of HSE since its EE baseline period. The energy performance is tracked between the EE baseline and 2030 using an Energy Performance Indicator (EnPI).
Actual consumption
Actual consumption is the total energy consumed by HSE in 2020, expressed as primary energy consumption. It includes electricity, thermal (heat) energy and transport consumption.
Avoided consumption
Avoided consumption is the amount of additional energy that would have been consumed by HSE in 2020 had it not made the reported efficiency gain since its energy efficiency baseline.
Gap to target
The gap to target is an estimate, based on 2020 data, of the additional energy savings required by 2030 to reach the efficiency target. The calculation of this value incorporates several simplifying assumptions, including that the organisation’s activity level will remain constant between 2020 and 2030.
Energy-related CO2 emissions
The energy-related CO2 emission values shown are attributable to the energy consumption reported by HSE.
Energy performance indicator
The Energy Performance Indicator (EnPI) is a way of measuring an organisation’s energy performance. Each year, an EnPI is calculated by dividing the organisation’s energy consumption by a measure of its activity (activity metric). A decreasing EnPI indicates an improvement in energy efficiency because less energy is being used per unit of activity. An increasing EnPI indicates deterioration in efficiency. The EnPI graph shows the actual and target energy performance for HSE since its energy efficiency baseline and out to 2030.
Project energy savings
The energy savings shown for specific projects are absolute savings per year, as reported by HSE, i.e. they are the reductions in consumption attributable to each project. They do not account for any changes in activity level within the organisation.

Primary energy
All energy values shown above are expressed as primary energy, or total primary energy requirement (TPER). This is a measure of all the energy consumed by the organisation and accounts for the energy that is consumed and/or lost in transformation, transmission and distribution processes.
Electricity
Electricity imported from the grid is not broken down between renewable and fossil sources; instead all of this electricity consumption is classified as ‘grid electricity’. Electricity reported by the organisation as having been generated within one the organisation’s facilities from renewable sources (e.g. solar PV) is included in the ‘renewable’ figures.
Biofuel
The vast majority of road transport fuels placed on the market in Ireland contain a single-digit percentage of biofuel. This percentage is calculated annually and is trending upwards over time, in line with national policy. The ‘renewable’ consumption figures shown above include an amount of biofuel consumption for HSE that has been calculated using the national biofuel contribution figures for 2020

Energy-related CO2 emissions
The energy-related CO2 emission values shown are attributable to the energy consumption reported by HSE.
Electricity-related CO2 emissions
The energy-related CO2 emissions attributable to electricity imported from the grid by HSE have been calculated using the average emission factor for electricity generation in Ireland for the relevant year. The electricity consumed by HSE in any given year may have come from a source that was less or more carbon intensive than the national average.

Annual energy savings from reported projects
Each coloured bar above corresponds to one of the coloured stripes in the table headings below. The dark blue/purple bars show savings already achieved in each year from project(s) implemented in that year. The light blue/purple bars indicate savings still being made in each year from project(s) implemented in a previous year. The green bars show savings for project(s) that have not yet been implemented. Dark green indicates savings expected in each future year from project(s) planned for implementation in that year. Light green indicates savings expected in each future year from project(s) planned for implementation before that year.
