My Department occupies three main campuses in Marlborough Street, Tullamore and Athlone. In addition, the Department also maintains the ESBS offices in Blanchardstown and 41 local offices throughout the country.

The table below displays the total the Department of Education has expended on electricity, gas and oil/lpg in each of the years 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020 and to date in 2021. 

Please note that it is not possible to extrapolate the amount the Department expends on lighting alone.  Therefore, the figures below includes all electrical usage and heating costs.

2017 2018 2019 2020 YEAR TO DATE

€463,521.87 €549,389.83 €501,659.52 €485,969.31 €420,967.10
