Energy Conservation & Renewable Resources
Increasing energy efficiency and renewable energy throughout the community has immense potential to both save money and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Energy efficiency and the reduction of building energy use can be achieved in a variety of ways, which include optimizing energy efficiency in new construction, retrofitting existing buildings to reduce energy consumption, promoting energy and water conservation/efficiency, and advancing the use of renewable energy.
Available sources of renewable energy include solar, wind, biomass, and geothermal energy. Renewable energy sources offer the potential for a clean, decentralized energy source that can reduce Dublin’s GHG emissions as well.
