DIT Energy Retrofit Technology team shortlisted in SEAI Awards

Posted: 25 November, 2014

The 11th annual Sustainable Energy Awards were presented at a ceremony in Dublin’s Shelbourne Hotel earlier this month and a team for DIT Dublin School of Architecture were joint-runners up in this year’s Research category.




The DIT Dublin School of Architecture MSc Energy Retrofit Technology team were presented with the award for joint runners up in the Research Category of the 2014 SEAI Awards.  The team presented the digital analysis and energy retrofit research outcomes of the MSc student “nearly Zero Energy Building (nZEB)” performance designs.  Taking the archetypal and replicable Dublin City Council "Gullwing" and "FlatTop" social housing blocks, the DIT proposal contended that, if implemented, it would reduce home energy requirements by at least 85%.  This could result in taking some 20,000 families permanently out of fuel poverty.


Organised by SEAI, the awards aim to recognise excellence in energy management, in the industrial, commercial, community and public sectors.  It is the only awards scheme recognising best practice in energy performance, management and design.
