Meath County Council improved its energy performance in 2016 by:
A modest increase in energy consumption
A modest increase in activity level
Additional comments on energy performance
Electricity and Transport consumption have increased since 2015, on the electricity side of things this would be accounted for by the taking in charge of additional lights, and also identifying additional lights as part of the TII/SEAI survey undertaken last yr. In addition, there was a significant increase in the electrical usage in Navan Leisure facility (a SEU) as the CHP unit for the facility was put out of commission in Feb/Mar 16, which resulted in >50% increase in the electrical consumption for the site. In Trim Leisure Facility (SEU) the operating hours of the leisure facility the CHP operated an additional 5hrs per day which resulted in an increase in the gas consumption of the site. Finally the contractors where appointed to upgrade Buvinda House, and this resulted in an increase in the energy consumption on the site. On the Transportation side of things activities have increased in the area's. Better data has improved the data capture, including use of the correct coding for fuels on Agresso, in addition, to accurate data being provided from suppliers as part of OGP contracts (Bulk Fuels, and Fuel Cards) which MCC has signed up to. Projects were undertaken across 7 No. buildings as part of the BEC2016, and also PL upgrade projects were undertaken but the savings associated with these will not be realised fully until 2017 as they were completed in the last qrtr of 2016.
The above commentary is as submitted by Meath County Council through SEAI’s public sector energy monitoring & reporting (M&R) system.

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 Meath County Council for 2016 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 baseline (Deterioration in energy efficiency since baseline)
The percentage saving (or deterioration) shown is the percentage improvement (deterioration) in the energy performance of Meath County Council since its baseline period. The energy performance is tracked between the baseline and 2020 using an Energy Performance Indicator (EnPI).
Actual consumption
Actual consumption is the total energy consumed by Meath County Council in 2016, 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 Meath County Council in 2016 had it not made the reported efficiency gain since its baseline.
Gap to target
The gap to target is an estimate, based on 2016 data, of the additional energy savings required by 2020 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 2016 and 2020.
Energy-related CO2 emissions
The CO2 emission values shown are attributable to the energy consumption reported by Meath County Council.
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 Meath County Council since its baseline and out to 2020.
Project energy savings
The energy savings shown for specific projects are absolute savings per year, as reported by Meath County Council, 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.

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 Meath County Council that has been calculated using the national biofuel contribution figures for 2016

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