The Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment (DCCAE), Denis Naughten T.D. is announcing a shift in the Government funded energy efficiency schemes, representing a major step in the transition towards decarbonising our heating and the Energy White Paper’s vision of a low carbon energy future.


In this regard, we are delighted to inform you for a number of grant increases to the Better Energy Homes grant programme, which will come into effect in 2018.

All current and open applications for External Wall Insulation and Oil or Gas Boilers with Heating Controls will be paid at the current grant rates up until the 15th January 2018.
The removal of the €100 grant for oil and gas boiler upgrades should not impact on future applications as this amount has been applied to the Heating Controls grant, increasing the Heating Controls grant from €600 to €700.
