Wexford County Hall

About us

Wexford County Council (Comhairle Contae Loch Garman) is the authority responsible for local government in County Wexford, Ireland. The council is responsible for housing and community, roads and transportation, urban planning and development, waste and recycling, business, amenity and culture, and environment. Wexford County Council had previously been based in an aging facility in Spawell Road. The new building, which was designed by Robin Lee Architecture, officially opened in 2011 and received a Civic Trust Award in 2012.

We are looking for:

The energy demand is higher during the peak hours (8:00 to 18:00) with capacity 150-175kW and night load (21:00 to 7:30) with capacity 65kW. The facility is equipped with a Building Energy Management System (BeMS). A 10kWp PV system is installed on the roof of the building. There is no storage technology installed at present. We are looking for charge batteries at night rate discharge during daytime for consumption optimisation.
