Sustainable energy for the rural village environment

Objective

The SERVE project demonstrates sustainable energy use in rural communities. Retrofit work is led by the Local Authority (NTCC) and new build by a not-for-profit co-operative (SPIL). SPIL is selling serviced sites in an Eco-Village to members, who will then build under the control and guidance of SPIL. This 132-home project is already under way. Thus, it will act as a flagship for Concerto from the start, by raising public awareness of RUE/RES. This high-profile project has the strong support of the local community and of NTCC.

Under Concerto, NTCC will promote advanced retrofit technology and RES, with the aims of reducing heat demand in a cluster of villages by 40% and doubling RES. Five hundred buildings will be upgraded, in an area housing 0.1% of Ireland's population. This will ensure national impact. Building owners will use diverse RUE/RES technologies, which will maximize replicability. Performance data will be widely disseminated.
