Energy Efficient Design
Energy Efficient Design (EED) is a methodology that assists organisations to design, construct and manage projects to achieve minimum energy consumption.Energy Efficient Design can minimise energy usage and reduce the running costs of a building or process. It can also help reduce the capital cost of the project through design changes.
The HSE completed 6 Pilot EED projects and the requirement for EED Review is now incorporated into the Scope of Works for Design Team Services for all Capital Projects.
South Lee Mental Health Facility in Cork was one of the pilot EED projects.
