In The Home

Better Energy Home Scheme

The Better Energy Home scheme provides grants to homeowners to upgrade their homes with energy efficiency measures, thus reducing energy use, costs and greenhouse gas emissions.

Retrofit Programme

This programme has now been launched as Better Energy: The National Upgrade Programme. Further details can be found here.

Home Energy Saving Scheme

An allocation of €20 million has been provided to support the Home Energy Saving Scheme, which provides grants to householders to improve energy performance of their homes.

Warmer Homes Scheme

The Warmer Homes Scheme aims to improve the energy efficiency and comfort conditions of homes occupied by low-income households. This scheme engages regional community based organisations to carry out the work – which includes attic insulation, draught proofing, lagging jackets, energy efficient lighting, cavity wall insulation and energy advice. The focus is on privately owned and rented homes.

The Building Energy Rating System (BER)

The Building Energy Rating System, or BER, provides clear information on the energy performance of a building. The BER system together with the renewable technology proposals will help to encourage individuals and companies to improve energy efficiency in their homes and buildings, and by doing so, secure significant savings in energy costs over time.

The Warmth and Well being Scheme

The Warmth and Well being Scheme

The Warmth and Wellbeing Scheme was launched in 2016 with an aim to improve the living conditions of vulnerable people living with chronic respiratory disease by making their houses warmer and more energy efficient. This initiative was set under the Government’s strategy to reduce energy poverty and to work on the Healthy Ireland Framework. For further details see here.
