Dundrum in green energy deal
DUNDRUM Town Centre has signed a new renewable energy deal with Vayu Energy that will see the Irish supplier cover the centre’s needs with 100pc green electricity.
Vayu said the deal will reduce the centre’s carbon footprint by the same amount as taking 640 cars off the road a year.
Under the terms of the new deal Dundrum will be able to avail of lower electricity costs based on market prices through procurement tools provided by Vayu. Wholesale electricity costs fell by around 35pc year on year in April.
Dundrum Town Centre director Don Nugent said it is the centre’s ambition to be a “carbon-neutral” scheme. “Environmental sustainability is very important for us as a company. We take our responsibilities very seriously when it comes to managing the resources we use,” Mr Nugent said.
“We’re delighted that this deal provides us with 100pc renewable electricity, thereby helping to reduce our carbon footprint even further.”
The centre was acquired by two firms, Hammerson and Allianz Real Estate.
