Energy costs are one of the single biggest cost concerns to SME businesses in Ireland.
Systemic and continuous control of energy usage can significantly increase your profits.

SEAI provides a range of Applied Training Courses suited to your business needs:

  • Businesses interested in training should first contact their trade representation body.
  • Businesses without a trade representative body, or individuals should register their interest by emailing


When calculating your business energy spend, don't forget to include all your energy spend: electricity, gas, heating cost, petrol and diesel from your company car or commercial vehicle fleet.
