The Irish Government, through SEAI, wishes to encourage people to improve the energy performance of their homes by incentivising the cost of installing various upgrade measures. The Better Energy scheme provides assistance to homeowners to reduce energy use, costs and greenhouse gas emissions and improve the comfort levels within their home.
The objectives of the scheme are to:
Support homeowners in making intelligent choices to improve the energy performance of their home
Reduce energy use, costs and greenhouse gas emissions
Build market capacity and competence by driving contractor standards and quality
Stimulating market innovation
The incentive is in the form of a Cash Grant. Cash grants are fixed, irrespective of home size, though where actual expenditure is lower than the grant value only the lower amount will be paid. Payment is by Electronic Funds Transfer to the applicant’s bank.
