Up to 20 million euro in energy efficiency grant support available to communities.

The Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland wants communities to apply for €20 million available in grant support for energy efficiency upgrades to homes, businesses and community buildings to be carried out in 2016.

The Government’s Better Energy Communities programme, administered by SEAI, has already supported 260 community energy retrofit projects over the last four years.

As a result over 12,000 homes and community buildings have received energy upgrades, supporting up to 3,500 jobs over the period.
