Deep Energy retrofit in City Library

Project Info

Organisation Cork City Council

Project Description

In the second half of 2017, Cork City Council carried out a deep energy retrofit of the Main City Library under the SEAI Better Energy Community (BEC) scheme.

The retrofit consisted of replacing the old heating system with an air-to-air heat pump, and the installation of roof-mounted Solar PV.

LED Lights were installed internally.

This air-to-air heat pump is a system which transfers heat contained in the outside air to inside the building, giving energy cost savings as well as reducing CO2 emissions.
