Cloughjordan Eco village to participate in Ireland’s First ‘Open Doors Days’

Cloughjordan Eco village is participating in Ireland’s first ‘Open Doors Days’ event taking place this weekend November 8 – 10.  During the ‘Open Doors Days’ members of the public can visit pioneering low energy homes and buildings throughout Ireland. Up to ten houses in Cloughjordan Eco village will be available to visit over the course of the weekend. Tipperary Energy Agency is supporting the campaign through its SustainCo project, which aims to raise awareness and support development of near zero energy buildings. Visitors will receive information about SustainCo Toolkits which will be launched at the event.  These toolkits give practical information to self builders and renovators on all aspects on how to build or retrofit to the best possible energy standards. The toolkit includes guides on insulation, building fabric, air tightness, lighting and electricity.

Alexandra Hamilton, Energy Engineer at Tipperary Energy Agency said “The Open Doors Days event  is relevant to anyone seeking to  build or retrofit to a high energy standard.  It will be an excellent opportunity for people to see finished projects firsthand, talk to the homeowner and go home with the toolkits to help them with their retrofitting or building project”.
