CWRR researcher Dr. Sarah Cotterill wins NovaUCD Award


Wednesday, 30 March, 2022

Dr Sarah Cotterill was awarded “Consultancy of the Year” at the 2022 NovaUCD Innovation Awards, for a policy brief completed for An Fóram Uisce through ConsultUCD.

The study entitled ‘A Framework for Improving Domestic Water Conservation in Ireland’, found that almost a fifth of the energy used in Irish homes is used for heating water, and therefore a relatively small reduction in household water use (of say 20%) in all homes in Ireland, could lead to a significant reduction (hundreds of thousands of tonnes) of greenhouse gas emissions a year.

Sarah was also interviewed about the findings from the report for Eco Eye on RTÉ and in the Farmer’s Journal. Find out more about:
