Energy Efficiency Retrofit Fund (EERF) for Lee Rd. Water Treatment Plant

Cork City Council has been successful in attracting substantial funding for energy efficient upgrades at the Lee Road water treatment plant from the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI). The funding for Lee Rd saw Cork City Council jointly procuring a similar product or service with Kerry County Council. 

The joint procurement strategy will provide a significant reduction in price. The Lee Rd plant is the single biggest consumer of energy in Cork City Council. Improved performance of the Lee Rd. waterworks is one of the cornerstones of Cork City Council’s climate change strategies. 


Specific objectives of the project are to:

  • To reduce the energy consumption and overall running cost of existing low level pumps by more than 10%.
  • To improve the monitoring and collection of data capability.
  • To improve reliability of water treatment in the City by replacing older existing pumps.
