My Department and the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland are currently involved in an energy efficient retrofit pilot scheme for schools. The introduction of solar panels is being considered as part of this scheme, the longer-term outcome of which will be to create an accurate and scalable model for energy efficient retrofits of schools across the country.
