The development of the Grangegorman Quarter is based on the international best practices of environmental sustainability. Early, sustainable masterplanning decisions will be augmented by the requisite governmental requirements and best practices and decisions of the designers of the individual buildings.
The basis of the initial energy plan is subdivided into two components: a site wide energy plant as well as an individual renewable energy plant for each building block. All heating, and a portion of the electricity, will be generated from a centralised combined heat and power (CHP) plant using biofuels and distributed to individual buildings. In addition, each of the individual buildings will provide hot water from hot water solar collectors located on the roofs of each building.
