Dun­drum in green en­ergy deal

Irish Independent - Business Week - - NEWS -

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.
