Wilo supplied high efficiency IE4 rated pumps for heating and cold-water applications as well as drainage pumps to the Central Bank of Ireland building, all manufactured by their parent company at Wilo SE Dortmund Germany.
Wilo-Stratos GIGA, Wilo-SiBoost Smart Helix VE, Wilo-Drain TP65 pumping equipment were selected in order to assess and certify the buildings performance according to the BREEAM standard.
The building energy rating (BER) is targeted at A2 - one of the first commercial projects in the state to aim for such a rating. This equates to a 72% improvement in energy consumption over previous building regulation baselines. The high efficiency pumping equipment contributes significantly to the overall energy performance of the building.
|Technologies/Measures||among others pumps for heating and cold-water applications|
|Building energy rating|| A2 (Building Energy Rating - BER)|
BREEAM certification: “outstanding”
|Pumping equipment efficiency||over 90%|
About the Energy Efficiency Awards
The Energy Efficiency Awards in Ireland were organized by the German – Irish Chamber of Industry and Commerce in October 2020. The awards show intended to promote successful German-Irish partnerships in the building sector. The five projects that have been selected show how innovative German energy-efficient solutions have led to increased building quality, reduced energy costs and lower CO2 emission levels in Irish buildings.
The online-event comprised three highly relevant presentations on the topic of energy efficiency in buildings by representatives from politics and industry, the presentations of the five German finalists, the official award ceremony and a concluding virtual networking event.
The Energy Efficiency Awards are part of the German Energy Solutions Initiative of the German Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy to recognise the positive impact German energy efficiency technologies have on Ireland's efforts to become more energy efficient.
