Energy provider Energia has won a €25m government tender, which will have ramifications for government departments, public sector bodies and third-level institutions and their electricity costs.
Under the terms of the tender win, Energia expects to supply over 180 gigawatt hours of electricity per year to power Central Government offices and non-commercial public bodies. The value of the contract which ranges from one to three years is estimated to be in the region of €25m.
The supply deal covers a number of government departments, third-level institutions and public sector bodies such as Failte Ireland, Road Safety Authority, Shannon Developments, the Revenue Commissioners, and the Office of Public Works in Farmleigh.
Energia was also recently awarded the contract to supply all unmetered electricity to all the County Councils and many local authorities in Ireland.
Commenting on this latest contract win, Alan Mulcahy, business markets manager, Energia said, "As Ireland's leading business energy supplier we are delighted to win this major public tender and offer real savings to Central Government Offices and public sector bodies across Ireland.
"Whether its dual-fuel gas and electricity deals, 'green energy' or supplying metered/unmetered electricity to public sector bodies in Ireland, it is easy for Irish businesses to benefit from competitive energy deals with Energia. Added to the price package Energia offer excellent customer service and with Energia Online, customers can also analyze and interrogate their energy consumption, discover usage patterns and produce reports. This information in turn can be used with another product, the Energia Bureau, to manage energy efficiency projects in the business."
