Written answers (Question to Housing)

My Department does not have specific data on heating systems relating to publicly owned residential units. However, the SEAI residential energy use report shows the breakdown of space heating fuels for housing on a national basis, based on the 2016 CSO Census, as oil 41%, natural gas 34% and electric heating as 9%.
