An Energy Grant known as EXEED – Excellence In Energy Efficient Design is now open. The fund of up to €6 million is available for projects that deliver best practice in the design, construction and management of buildings for optimum energy efficiency. This scheme was launched today, Friday 1st March by Minister for Communications, Climate Action and the Environment, Richard Bruton T.D.
The Energy Grant is applicable to anyone who is currently in the design phase for new or existing buildings. The energy grant is open to both public and private organisations who are planning on transitioning to renewable energy for an invest project of any scale or complexity.
With this Energy Grant, savings in excess of 30% are common according to SEAI who administer the grants. In addition to the energy and climate impacts, this EXEED certification will assist businesses to become more efficient, competitive and resilient.
Announcing the energy grant this morning Minister Bruton commented that we are “recognising increased potential and growing appetite for investment in this area we have provided €6m in funding for this programme this year – almost about double the value of the demand in last year’s scheme. A huge range of bodies ranging from local GAA clubs to Data Centres and from hospitals to agribusiness have made savings of over 30% in their energy costs through the scheme. The certification it yields is a great selling point for climate aware leaders.”
CEO of Sustainable Energy Authority Ireland Jim Gannon said, “The SEAI EXEED process identifies opportunities to create additional value while undertaking capital works. Businesses who have followed the SEAI EXEED process have saved over 30% on their baseline energy costs, increasing their competitiveness in the marketplace, reducing their carbon footprint and delivering a strong return on investment.”
