Written answers (Question to Housing)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 1514, 1529 and 1530 together.

My Department's responsibility in relation to energy efficiency upgrades to the housing stock is focused on social housing, reflecting its responsibilities in relation to funding for social housing programmes. In that context, my Department provides exchequer funding for a programme of energy efficiency/insulation retrofitting to improve the insulation standards and overall energy performance of local authority social housing stock. The programme was launched in 2013 and is being implemented in two phases: Phase 1 provides funding targeted at the less intrusive cavity wall/attic insulation, while Phase 2 focuses on the fabric upgrade works to dwellings with solid/hollow block wall construction and includes the provision of heating upgrades. Consequently, the amounts allocated annually to local authorities reflect the implementation of the programme across the different phases.

Since the programme of support from my Department commenced, over 68,000 social homes have been insulation retrofitted, with a total exchequer spend of €128 million. The following is a breakdown, by local authority, of the funding drawn down and the number of social housing homes retrofitted under the Programme between 2013 and 2018:
