Energy Contracting Support Scheme

Fund energy-saving, decarbonisation projects

This scheme encourages businesses to invest in energy efficiency projects through Energy Performance Contracts (EPCs) for guaranteed results at a lower cost. 


An Energy Performance Contract (EPC) means a contractor upgrades your place of business to save energy and promises you savings. You pay them back with the savings over time. If you save less than promised, the contractor pays the difference, ensuring you benefit.

You might be eligible if: 

  • You are a private or public sector business of any size
  • Your business is based in the Republic of Ireland
  • You comply with the specific requirements and regulations outlined by the SEAI 

Eligibility is subject to terms and conditions.

What do you get?

  • Grants to cover costs of external consultants and project management fees
  • Practical guidance and resources to assist your business throughout the project development process 
  • Support finding qualified contractors and with the project proposal 

What can it be used for?

  • Introducing energy-efficient measures in buildings and facilities i.e. deep energy retrofits, and installation of energy-efficient equipment
  • Switching to renewable energy sources like solar panels, wind turbines, or biomass boilers 
  • Guaranteeing energy savings
  • Reducing upfront costs and risks for businesses with tight budgets
