Cosgrave Property Group were early adaptors of the sustainable agenda and were the first house builder to receive the prestigious SEAI Overall Sustainability Award. They have adopted a combination of; building regulations, passive house principles, NZEB (nearly zero energy buildings) design details and controlled energy saving mechanisms to vastly improve comfort and efficiency while helping to significantly reduce carbon footprint and running costs. In recent years they have spearheaded the growing Dublin PRS (Private Rental Scheme) market with landmark investment focused apartment developments all with outstanding supporting amenities for tenants.


All of the Cosgrave PRS developments including Neptune (197 Apartments), Leona (160 Apartments) and Charlotte (159 Apartments) in Honeypark, Dun Laoghaire and their latest PRS offering Bridgefield (216 Apartments) in Santry have their electricity supplied to them by Pinergy and they are all using our smart metering technology. This enables tenants to see the real time cost of using electrical appliances and to understand their electricity usage. 32% of our customers have reduced their usage by 20% or more.


I recently brought our brand ambassador and Irish rugby legend Paul O’Connell to meet Mick Cosgrave of Cosgrave Property Group on site in Honeypark. Paul was delighted to see our smart metering technology in the apartments and the Combined Heat and Power (CHP) systems in the plant rooms which are simultaneously generating electricity on site as well as supplying all of the apartments with hot water. Any excess electricity generated by the CHP on site can be sold to the grid through Pinergy.


Pinergy began as a simple pay-as-you-go residential supply business and has quickly grown into one of the most advanced and technology led energy services providers in Ireland. Our offering now includes all business sectors where in addition to supplying electricity we offer a variety of technology based products and services for monitoring electricity usage, achieving energy efficiency and generating electricity on site.

If you would like to learn more about any of these technologies or about our PRS solution, please contact me.
