There are two types of grants available from Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI), which are as follows:

NOTE: Information below is from the SEAI web site.

The Irish Government, through SEAI, wishes to encourage people to improve the energy performance of their homes by incentivising the cost of installing various upgrade measures. The Better Energy Homes scheme provides assistance to homeowners to reduce energy use, costs and greenhouse gas emissions and improve the comfort levels within their home. 

The objectives of the scheme are to:

  • Support homeowners in making intelligent choices to improve the energy performance of their home
  • Reduce energy use, costs and greenhouse gas emissions
  • Build market capacity and competence by driving contractor standards and quality
  • Stimulating market innovation

The incentive is in the form of a Cash Grant. Cash grants are fixed, irrespective of home size, though where actual expenditure is lower than the grant value only the lower amount will be paid. Payment is by Electronic Funds Transfer to the applicant’s bank.

The Warmer Homes scheme aims to improve the energy efficiency and comfort conditions of homes occupied by low-income households, and to establish the systems and growing the capacity in Ireland to install such measures. This approach is founded on a social employment delivery model. This model engages regional community based organisations to acquire and apply the skills to carry out the work – which includes attic insulation, draught proofing, lagging jackets, energy efficient lighting, cavity wall insulation and energy advice.
