Written answers (Question to Environment)

The Energy Efficiency Directive requires each EU Member State to publish a Long Term Renovation Strategy every three years. In 2020, Ireland published its third Long Term Renovation Strategy setting out the policies and measures that will encourage and support the achievement of a highly energy-efficient and decarbonised building stock in Ireland by 2050. These policies and measures included all those set out in the 2019 Climate Action Plan.

Ireland's next Long Term Renovation Strategy will be developed and submitted to the European Commission in 2023. It will encompass all the additional policies and measures set out in Housing for All, the National Development Plan and the Climate Action Plan.
