Written answers (Question to Communications)

The Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) administers the Deep Retrofit Pilot scheme on behalf of my Department. The Scheme, a three-year pilot which began in 2017, is investigating how to create a scalable offering for the deep retrofit of Ireland’s housing stock, while building consumer demand as well as contractor capacity.

Under the scheme, the SEAI provides grants to fund up to 50% of the total capital and project management costs for homes that achieve an A3 Building Energy Rating. 95% funding is available under the pilot scheme for households in energy poverty.

Details of the number of homes that received support under the Deep Retrofit Pilot Scheme, by year (since the scheme commenced in 2017) and county are set out in the table below. The figures for 2019 are year to date.
