Written answers (Question to Housing)

The Energy Efficiency/Retrofitting Programme was launched in 2013 to improve the insulation standards and overall energy performance of local authority social housing stock. The programme 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 commenced, over 68,000 social homes have been retrofitted, with a total exchequer spend of some €128 million.  There is a budget of €25m for the Energy Efficiency Programme for 2019 and allocations for this year will be issuing to local authorities shortly.

The following is a breakdown, by local authority, of the funding drawn down under the Programme between 2016 and 2018:
