SEAI are tendering for consultants to advise public bodies on a wide range of energy related issues. The services are across 5 lots detailed below. Lot 2 maybe of special interest to CIBSE members, especially in the context of NZEB, building labelling, building modelling, energy efficient design and general technology specific expertise.
As well as the work opportunities, there is the opportunity to be involved and aware of developments in these areas, and of early trials and pilots of new national approaches and projects.
