Written answers (Question to Communications)

The Warmer Homes Scheme provides free energy efficiency upgrades to the homes of people living in or at risk of energy poverty. The scheme is administered by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) on behalf of my Department. The Warmer Homes Scheme is delivered through a panel of contractors, appointed through a competitive tendering process. The total number of homes upgraded to date in 2019 under the Warmer Homes Scheme is 2,241. The SEAI estimate that approximately 4,500 homes will be upgraded under the Scheme by end of 2019.

Officials in my Department have been informed by the SEAI that the information requested by the Deputy on individual service providers is commercially sensitive. However, anonymised activity data is set out in the following table.
