UL were recently named as one of four Finalists in the Research category of Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland’s (SEAI’s) Sustainable Energy Awards 2016. The research, which focussed on the use of behaviour change as a means of improving energy efficiency, was conducted by UL Energy Manager Dr Chris Fogarty in association with Health Sciences Building staff and North Bank Facilities Manager Ian O’Donoghue.

Finalists were chosen based on a number of criteria including the innovativeness, replicability and benefits of the work undertaken in addition to the implementation approach adopted. The overall winner will be chosen after all finalists make a presentation at SEAI’s headquarters in Dublin later this month with the overall winner due to be announced at a Gala event in Dublin on 3rd November 2016.
Exactly one week later on November 10th, UL will find out whether it was successful in its pursuit of the Environmental Association of Universities and Colleges (EAUC) Green Gown Award for which it has also been shortlisted. For more on that story click here.
Updates will be issued in due course.
