The Excellence in Energy Efficiency Design (EXEED) programme was reviewed and relaunched in early 2021, with significant enhancement in both supporting deeper emissions reductions and more efficient processing and approvals cycles. Since its relaunch it has attracted significant interest, and a strong pipeline of projects has developed. The total carbon reduction as a result of the EXEED scheme is 4,597.69tCO2. This figure reflects commitments made through stage 2 letters of offer in 2021.
The SEAI assesses value for money in a number of ways, including the cost to SEAI i.e. grant amount offered, per kWh of primary energy saved annually and per lifetime tCO2 saved (over 15 years). This represents very good value for money and within the business case parameters of the programme. The SEAI estimates the cost per lifetime tCO2 saved (over 15 years) is €27.56.
