Deputy Eamon Ryan Deputy Eamon Ryan
Deputy Eamon Ryan: Sustainable Energy Ireland (SEI) is currently working with many hotels through the “Energy Supports for Business Programme”. This programme helps hotels and other businesses interested in reducing their energy costs through increased efficiency. The programme provides on-site energy assessments and tailored training sessions, and the hotel and hospitality sectors are one of the strongest participants in terms of interest and engagement. More than 50 hotels across Ireland are currently engaged with SEI in either training or direct advice activities and SEI are available to discuss with other hotels how they can assist.
