SEAI Better Energy Homes Scheme
Cash Grants for Energy Efficiency Upgrades


Do you own a home built before 2011? Are you considering upgrading energy efficiency
measures in your home? You may be eligible to receive cash grants towards the cost of a

variety of energy saving measures. From insulation to heat pumps - the more you upgrade
the more you save!

How Does the Better Energy Homes Scheme Work?


SEAI’s Better Energy Homes Scheme provides grants to offset the cost of a wide variety of
energy measures when installed in homes built before 2006. These measures include
insulation (attic, cavity wall, external wall insulation, internal wall dry lining), heating
controls, heat pump systems, solar water heating and solar electricity. For insulation and
heating control upgrades the home must have been built before 2006. For heat pumps
systems, solar water heating and solar electricity systems the home must have been built
before 2011. Heat pump system upgrades can only be installed in homes that are certified
heat pump ready.

Benefits for the Entire Community.

 

When you upgrade energy efficiency measures in your community or not-for-profit
organisation, the benefits are twofold. Not only are you doing your part to reduce energy
consumption, carbon footprint and greenhouse gas emissions, you’re creating healthier
more comfortable buildings and facilities for your local community to enjoy.
With community grants of up to 30% available, the initial cost can be substantially reduced
and the return on investment can often be very short.
Not only will you enjoy reduced energy spend, you’ll be inspiring the community by
spreading awareness on the benefits of energy retrofitting - creating healthier, more
sustainable lives within your local community.

High Fives

Everyone’s Included.

 

If you’re a community organisation or not-for-profit, chances are you can qualify for energy
efficiency grant funding. We’ve completed works on organisations from local GAA clubs to
community-owned apartments, sporting halls, community development organizations. Local
authorities and housing associations can also benefit from grant funding of up to 30% for

Our experienced retrofit team will work with you to develop a plan that meets your goals
within your budget. We’ll project manage the entire process from start through to
completion, so all you have to do is enjoy the immediate and longterm benefits.
